Event Description

The New Haven Museum presents a Twilight Concert Series, a summer outdoor concert series that will take place on the lawn at the Pardee-Morris House, located at 325 Lighthouse Road in New Haven. The Museum welcomes concertgoers of all ages to enjoy barbershop, bluegrass and folk music throughout the summer.

Admission is free, but donations are welcome.

Starting at 6 pm, the Pardee-Morris House will be open to visitors and refreshments from Chestnut Fine Foods or wood-fired pizzas from Frank Andrews Mobile Kitchen will be available for purchase. Visitors can bring blankets and chairs and enjoy a picnic on the lawn.

Wednesday, August 1: The String Fingers Band. (Rain Date: August 22) The String Fingers Band is a dynamic group of Connecticut musicians whose vast repertoire means every concert comes with welcome surprises, from their folksy, backwoods originals to barn-burning fiddle tunes and creative takes on classic American songs. Formed in 2008 by Dan Tressler (fiddle/mandolin/vocals) and Dan Carlucci (guitar/mandolin/vocals), The String Fingers Band has been recently voted “Best Bluegrass Band” by The Fairfield County Weekly two years in a row and plays regularly at premier venues throughout New England and New York.

The Pardee-Morris House, one of the oldest surviving historic structures in Connecticut, dates from about 1780. Built by Amos Morris around 1750, the house was burned by the British during their raid on New Haven in 1779 and was rebuilt by the Morris family. In 1915, William Pardee, a descendant of the Morris family, willed the property to the New Haven Colony Historical Society, today the New Haven Museum. The Pardee-Morris House is open free of charge on Sundays from 12 pm to 5 pm through August 26, 2012.

The New Haven Museum, founded as the New Haven Colony Historical Society in 1862, is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. For more information, contact Michelle Cheng, Director of Education at (203) 562-4183 ext. 11 or education@newhavenmuseum.org.

LISC CEO on Unemployment, Debt and the Road to COVID19 Recovery

In a Politico article examining the impending debt crunch that could further burden Americans living on low incomes, Maurice A. Jones weighs in on the unprecedented support needed to help tens of millions get through this crisis. In addition to assistance from groups like LISC, says Jones, it's time to "get back to the federal government’s next chapter in helping folks weather the storm."

Can Corporate Investors Help Close the Racial Wealth Gap?

Racial wealth and income gaps not only damage the outlook for millions of American families, they threaten the prospects of U.S. companies that rely on a strong and growing consumer base for their products. In an op-ed for ImpactAlpha, LISC’s George Ashton considers the staggering economic impact of racial inequality, the ongoing systemic risks, and the benefits of corporate investment strategies focused on underserved populations and communities.
