The Stamford Museum and Nature Center is inviting the public to welcome spring on a full-moon night with a family-friendly evening of jazz, including a box supper and beer on tap, at the Farmhouse on Thursday, March 21.
Dixieland Jazz quintet French 75, of Hartford, will perform classics from the 1900s-1940s, featuring the sounds of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton and many of the mavericks of American jazz. They’ll perform hits like “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “Basin Street Blues” and “When the Saints Go Marching In,” along with original compositions designed to rouse the spirit of jazz in listeners of all ages.
Expect to dance like you’re in New Orleans when the sounds of trumpet, clarinet, tuba, banjo, drums and vocals take stage, the museum said in a news release.
Tickets include the concert, plus a catered box supper, beers on tap and a full-moon view from the venue’s scenic Overlook Terrace at the top of the site’s pastures and meadows.
Stamford Museum and Nature Center Farmhouse, 151 Scofieldtown Road. Thursday, March 21, 7-9 p.m. $70, $60 members, Director’s Circle Members free. 203-322-1646.
