Henry Whitfield House State Museum

Event Details

Celebrate Father’s Day at Connecticut’s oldest house! This free outdoor concert on the front lawn of the Whitfield House features the Shoreline Jazz Quartet. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and picnics, and leave room for ice cream – Sully’s Good Humor truck will be here. It’s also State Museum Sunday, so the Whitfield House is open for free 10:00-4:00. The Shoreline Jazz Quartet performs an eclectic mix of jazz all around the Connecticut shoreline. Their repertoire ranges from early New Orleans-style jazz through blues, swing, bebop, modern jazz, and jazz renditions of popular music. SJQ has recorded three records that focus on explorations of the music of a particular jazz artist, such as Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, and Pat Metheny. At Music at the Museum, SJQ will feature Rich Meyer on vibraphone, Steve Wood on guitar, Steve Roane on bass, and Mike Bimonte on drums. The concert will be cancelled if it rains, but the museum will stay open. Support provided by CT Humanities.
