The "Live at the Edmond Town Hall" music series returns with The Bill Frisell and Sam Amidon Duo on March 19 at 7 p.m.
All proceeds will go to the renovation of the organizer and Newtown resident, Hayden Bates, stated in a press release.
According to Bill Frisell's website The New York Times has said: "It's hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell.
Edmond Town Hall Theater was a gift from Mary Hawley in 1929 to the town in memory of her great grandfather, Judge William Edmond. It is the only $2 movie theater in Connecticut.
Amidon is a folk artist originally from Vermont, the release said. A reviewer wrote of his 2010 album "I See The Sign" that "as a vocalist Amidon is preternaturally calm, and his flat repetition of certain couplets feels mesmeric and mantra-like. He's poised, but never cold, and [this] can play like a gospel record, with all the attendant modes and lessons. These are songs to live by."
Tickets are $29.99 and can be purchased at www.edmondtownhall.org/billfrisell
