FTC welcomes back multi-instrumentalist David Lindley

Fairfield Theatre Company welcomes back multi-instrumentalist David Lindley to StageOne on Wednesday, May 20, at 7:45.

Known for his many years as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne, and leader of his own band El Rayo-X, Lindley is returning to StageOne to redefine the word eclectic.

Having grown up in southern California, Lindley first took up the banjo as a teenager. Having subsequently won the annual Topanga canyon banjo and fiddle contest five times, Lindley began in exploring the American folk music tradition.

Today, Lindley’s expansive and encompassing live performances consistently give audiences one of the most unique concert experiences available. It’s through his electro-acoustic performance which effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and a Turkish musical source that has led Lindley to become one of the most sought out musicians of all time. But that’s not all, Lindley also incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki.

If you ever been in awe of  musicians who seem to just naturally be able to pick up an instrument and play like a legend then make sure you do yourself a favor and buy your tickets early because talent like this doesn’t often play in such an intimate venue. FTC would also ask those in attendance to please try to keep their mouths closed and not to drool in awe too much at what they are witnessing.

For tickets, at $35 in advance with a $3 member discount, visit www.fairfieldtheatre.org or call 203-259-1036.
