Little Feat Shakes up The Ridgefield Playhouse July 18
Little Feat have led a storied life ever since they formed in 1969. Their unconventional signature of earthy, organic appeal and polished, first-rate musicianship wrapped around eclectic and memorable songs -- clearly delivered as an authentic labor of love -- has been a lasting fixture on the musical landscape. As American as apple pie--and rock ‘n roll itself--Feat’s music transcends boundaries, a freewheeling fusion of California rock and Dixie-inflected funk-boogie. In the mix as well are strains of folk, blues, rockabilly, country and jazz, inventing a hybrid sound that is truly Little Feat’s own. Through the years, they’ve scored dozens of hits, including “Dixie Chicken,” “Willin,’” “Let It Roll” and “Rock & Roll Doctor.” Little Feat will shake up The Ridgefield Playhouse on Wednesday, July 18 at 8pm, part of the Pepsi Rock Series powered by Xfinity. Visit The Hideaway (30 Grove Street • Ridgefield) for dinner the day of the show and enjoy a complimentary draft beer or glass of wine with your entree when you show your ticket. Media sponsor for this great night of classic rock is i95, The Home of Rock and Roll.

The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education Awarded New Canaan Community Foundation Grant
In late May, at an awards ceremony at the New Canaan Library, The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education (The Center) received a $5,000 grant from the New Canaan Community Foundation. A recognition that sexual violence is a problem in every community, this generous grant will fund The Center’s prevention education programming in New Canaan and surrounding communities. An ongoing goal of The Center’s education department is to reach different audiences in the community to raise awareness of the problem as well as the resources available to those affected by sexual violence. Part of that initiative includes instructing police officers, social workers, health teachers and parents, in addition to our in-school programs. Prevention education delivered by trained professionals is especially important given that 70% of Connecticut residents report that their parents did not discuss sexual assault with them, and nationally one in four (1:4) women and one in six (1:6) men will experience sexual assault in their lifetime.
