Kristen Graves, the state troubadour of Connecticut, will bring her "new generation" of folk music to the Pequot Library on Thursday.

Graves, a Fairfield resident, will perform the free concert at 7:30 p.m. in the library, 720 Pequot Ave. in the Southport section of town. Doors open 30 minutes before the concert.

The singer/songwriter, recently called "the new generation of folk" by the New York Times, at the Pequot will be ending her "20/20" tour, during which she has performed 20 house concerts in 20 days, according to publicity for the event.

"I'm looking forward to celebrating a successful tour at home with my family, friends and neighbors. Music is the perfect remedy for the winter blues," Graves said in a press release issued by the library.

She plans to perform her original songs, as well as classic folk sing-alongs, and to recount tales from the road. Inspiration for Graves, according to the release, has come from sharing the Lincoln Center stage with Peter Yarrow, to sharing lentil soup and conversation with Pete Seeger.
