Professor Louie & the Crowmatix have been keeping the flame of roots music burning bright for more than a decade. With a heritage that goes directly back to legendary folk-rock group The Band (the original Crowmatix were created by founding Band member Levon Helm), the Crowmatix are the "true and authentic vine" of the "Woodstock" sound. In fact, Aaron "Professor Louie" Hurwitz (who was given his nickname by legendary Band bassist Rick Danko) produced three of the Band's biggest albums (High on the Hog, Jericho and Jubilation). Artie Traum is an award-winning songwriter and acoustic guitarist featured on over 35 albums since he began recording in 1968. "Artie has the natural, soulful touch that other guitarists only dream about," says Donald Fagen of Steely Dan. Artie Traum has been called "one of the great players of any era" and “a remarkable player and songwriter.” Fairfield Theatre Company is located a short walk from the Fairfield Train Station at 70 Sanford St., Fairfield, CT.
