Connecticut talent takes the stage in the Twilight Concert Series

There is Music for everyone After a year off for a pandemic in the 2021 Twilight Concert Series, we will return to Paldi Morris House in New Haven. Every other Wednesday at 7:00 pm, hosted by the New Haven Museum, local favorites perform at a free concert during the summer. Margaret Ann Tokershuski, Executive Director of the New Haven Museum, said: “Attendance is 100-200 and we have a food truck so people can enjoy it or bring their own picnic.”

The series will begin on June 23 with Otis and Hurricane, a combination of New Orleans funk, Texas blues and gold all “rock and roll.” “The band looks forward to sharing the energy and joy of live music with the audience,” said lead singer Chris “Otis” Cross. “We’ve been playing together for over 20 years and enjoying the music of the New Orleans region. Expect some deep groovy dance music. Come play!”

The Twilight Concert Series continues the passionate picking of bluegrass professors on July 7th with its traditional bluegrass music. “It’s been a long time since we got together as a band. We look forward to playing together and sharing music with a live audience on the beautiful grounds of Paldi Morris House.” Said Craig. The band’s mandolin player, Harwood.

All the members of the band met when they lived in and around New Haven. Most members are associated with Yale University. In fact, the group’s founder and base player, Peter Salovey, is now president of Yale University.
