Citizen Cope performs at the Klein

Citizen Cope

Citizen Cope

Fairfield Theatre Company continues to bring the best music of yesterday and today to its audiences and will continue the tradition by welcoming back Citizen Cope to the Klein Auditorium,  910 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport on Thursday, April 2, at 8 p.m., for a special intimate solo performance.

Citizen Cope’s roots are complex with musical cues drawing from legends like Bill Withers, Neil Young, John Lee Hooker, Van Morrison, Willie Nelson and Al Green. Yet, listening to Cope, audiences may hear none of these influences at all, but rather hear and feel a man who is expressing stories which haunt his very heart.

As a child of the 1970s, Cope’s life journey is as singular as his art. As a college student, Cope found himself fooling around with a primitive four-track setup. As the turntables intrigued him and the sounds of hip-hop-inspired invention, Cope got lost in his self-designed lab, cooking up beats and motifs that would later help shape the songs which audiences know of today.

With a sound that is rich in southern rural, heartbreaking romantic, big sky lonely, and concrete urban Cope’s voice and songs are known to cut to the core of even the strongest of individuals. Having produced five albums of depth and distinction in the past nine years, Cope is always searching to create a sound that paints the auditory American landscape.

Join the Fairfield Theatre Company as they present this exceptional performer at  Bridgeport’s Klein Auditorium, as he performs another special intimate solo acoustic performance that will feature songs from his 2012 release One Lovely Day and his other classic hits. With Cope’s deep “sandpaper voice” and with his rich slow blues, audiences will feel as though they are floating down a river of melodies on a brisk summer or autumn day.

For tickets, at $36-$56/VIP Package $150 per ticket advance member discount $5-$10, visit fairfieldtheatre.org or call 203-259-1036.
