Grand Slambovians/Hamell on Trial tomorrow night in Fairfield

This Thursday, June 26th we're at the Fairfield Theater Company where we co-present together with the FTC a rare CT appearance by The Grand Slambovians— who pioneered alt-folk/americana staying on the fringe of the music industry. Think David Gilmore meets Duane Allman meets David Bowie! The opener is the personable, heavily acoustic amped Ed Hamell who goes by the name Hamell on Trial. This is a benefit for both of our non-profits. Tickets are online at fairfieldtheatre.org or via the box office at 203-259-1036.
