Brunch and jazz at the Playhouse (via Ridgefield Press)

What better way to spend a spring Sunday than enjoying a Jazz Brunch? On May 17 at The Ridgefield Playhouse, brunch will be provided by Bareburger serving a sampling of their spring menu paired with a Prosecco tasting courtesy of No. 109 Cheese & Wine at 1 p.m.

The main event starts at 2 p.m. in the theater with jazz singer Karrin Allyson and her quartet. To complement the food, drink and music, the edgy and fresh work of up-and-coming artist Megan Marden of Danbury, CT will be exhibited in the lobby, courtesy of Watershed Gallery, Ridgefield.

Four-time Grammy nominee Karrin Allyson has spent the last fifteen years carving out an impressive career as a singer, songwriter, pianist, composer and bandleader.  Her music is drawn from a variety of genres including bossa nova, blues, bebop, samba, jazz and pop standards plus The Great American Songbook, soft rock, and folk rock. Four of Allyson’s albums — Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane, Footprints, Imagina: Songs of Brasil, and ‘Round Midnight — have received Grammy nominations for Best Jazz Vocal Album.  The jazz line-up for this show is Ed Howard on bass, Adam Cruz on drums, Bob Mann on guitar and Karrin Allyson on piano/vocals. This event is part of the No. 109 Cheese & Wine “Art, Wine and Jazz” Series with media sponsor WZBG 97.3fm.
