151 Brookdale Road, Stamford, CT 06903. Phone: 203-322-6971.
On Friday, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Bring a chair or blanket, your favorite beverage and a light snack (no cooking allowed) and enjoy a relaxing night of great music on the lawn. The current all-star lineup was formed by banjoist/founder Sandy Israel, who pioneered the concept of Citigrass by combining the speed and virtuosity of bluegrass with the rebel yell of rock and roll. Sandy's road to banjo nirvana took him from the D.C. punk scene to performing on the crowded streets of Tokyo, and finally to Citigrass Headquarters in Brooklyn, where he leads one of the largest and most active banjo teaching studios in the New York area. In case of inclement weather the performances will take place inside the new Silver Educational Center on the same grounds. Members $5, non -members $10. Children under 12 are free. All concerts are generously sponsored by First County Bank. For more information, call, e-mail or visit the website.
