Sunday, October 30th @ 2:00pm:  The Library’s Ridgefield Folk Concert Series continues with a special performance by Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem.  Harmony, rhythm, indelible songs – these are the hallmarks of this Americana quartet, a band that’s been together for 20 years and counting! From the Newport Folk Festival to Solid Sound and beyond, this band offers up wit, camaraderie, and pure musicality to renew the human spirit.  The Ridgefield Folk Concert Series is made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Ridgefield Library.
