“Jazz in the Garden at Weir Farm,” featuring The Brubeck Brothers Quartet returns Sunday, Sept. 18, from 3-5 p.m.. Weir Farm National Historic Site is especially excited to welcome back the Quartet given park’s special local connection with the Brubeck family. The Brubeck Brothers Quartet features Chris Brubeck on bass and trombone, Dan Brubeck on drums, Chuck Lamb on piano and Mike DeMicco on guitar to help celebrate the occasion.

“It is always meaningful to us when we can create music for the hometown crowd, evoking the powerful memories of nearly 20 years of jazz concerts at this beautiful venue,” Chris Brubeck says. “I’ve always said that playing in the Weir Farm garden on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, looking out onto a crowd of smiling friends and familiar faces, watching the children dancing, twirling, and playing with balloons always feels like a slice of Norman Rockwell’s America.”

Sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and hosted by Weir Farm National Historic Site, Jazz in the Garden receives generous support from Bankwell in Wilton, the Karen and William Tell Foundation, with special thanks to Catherine and Ed Romer, and media sponsor TownVibe Media. Proceeds benefit the Artist-in-Residence program administered by the Weir Farm Art Center, which draws talented artists from around the world, giving them a chance to create in the inspirational landscape of Weir Farm National Historic Site.

Also important is that 2016 marks the 100 birthday of the National Park Service.
