Ridgefield Folk: Washboard Slim & the Bluelights

Sunday, September 10th @ 2:00pm:  The Library’s Ridgefield Folk Concert Series returns with Washboard Slim & the Bluelights, whose music comes from the roots of traditional American popular music. The Bluelights draw on a variety of musical forms and they’ve created a new musical style that equally respects the past and the present – a typical Bluelights performance might include original tunes, early jazz, blues, swing, standards, jug band, early string band, gospel, pop music from the turn of the century and roots-y rock’n’roll. Started in 1986, they continue to perform at festivals, concerts and clubs around the country. In 2008 they won the Connecticut Blues Challenge and entry into the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.
