Two great benefit concerts coming up!

We hope you can attend one or both of our upcoming WPKN-FM Benefit Concerts: Saturday’s Summer Solstice Brazilian concert at the beautiful Unitarian Church at 10 Lyons Plain Road in Westport with some amazing Brazilian jazz & samba from the multi-piece band Sambeleza. $30 benefit tickets are at the door and also at Doors open at 7:30pm with the show at 8pm. Musicians include Isabella Mendes, piano/vocals; Joe Carter, guitar; Jeff Fuller, bass/vocals and guest artists Adriano Santos, drums; Ali Ryerson, flute and Ze' Mauricio, percussion. We thank Fountainhead Wines/Fat Cat Pie in Norwalk, CT for their support.

Then on Thursday, June 26th it’s 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 or via the box office at 203-259-1036.
