Holiday rock shows to be offered at the Fairfield Theatre Company
Published 4:29 pm, Thursday, December 5, 2013
The Fairfield Theatre Company is rocking the holiday season this year with two presentations: A pair of concerts by Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, and a documentary on legendary guitarists Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), The Edge (U2), and Jack White (White Stripes, Dead Weather). The film, "It Might Get Loud," will be shown on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 7:45 p.m. and Sister Sparrow will play Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14 at 7:45 p.m.
Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds are a Brooklyn-based eight piece band returning to Fairfield Theatre Company's StageOne. The soul/rock group is made up of several family members and friends: singer and front woman Sister Sparrow (Arleigh Kincheloe); her brother, harmonica player Jackson; their cousin, Bram, a California-bred drummer; and childhood friends J.J. Byars (alto saxophone) and Ryan Snow (trombone). The group is rounded out by trumpeter Phil Rodriguez, and has played more than 150 shows in 35 states for the second year in a row.
Tickets are $22 in advance and $25 the day of the concert with a $3 member discount.
The documentary "It Might Get Loud" is filmed through the eyes of a past furniture upholsterer from Detroit (Jack White), a studio musician and painter from London (Jimmy Page) and an old Dublin schoolboy (The Edge). The film follows the three guitar virtuosos and tells how each used the electric guitar to develop a unique sound all of their own and rise to superstardom.
Tickets for the documentary are $10 in advance.
Tickets for both Sister Sparrow's shows and for the documentary film can be purchased online at www.fairfieldtheatre.org Both events will take place at StageOne, 70 Sanford St. Doors will open for all shows at 7 p.m.
