Welcome to CHIRP 2022!

dedicated to making Ridgefield an even better place to live.

Thanks for a great 2022 season, see you next year in the park!

Tues. Aug. 30: Tuba Skinny –The concert will remain in Ballard Park. We will do one long set this evening. you may want to bring rain gear just in case it rains before 9pm, but it doesn’t look like it now.

Formed in 2009, Tuba Skinny has released seven albums since and steadily evolved from a loose collection of street musicians into a solid band dedicated to bringing the traditional New Orleans sound to audiences around the world.  Drawing on a wide range of musical influences – from spirituals to Depression-era blues, from ragtime to traditional jazz- their sound evokes the rich musical heritage of their Louisiana roots.

Thurs. Sept. 1: New Orleans Suspects

This band has been tearing up the festival and club circuits for more than a decade.  A New Orleans Supergroup that plays swampified Rock n Roll, its music combines irresistibly tight funk, soulful horns, Americana based R &B and a pinch of jam band to create a uniquely funky groove.
