Brandi Carlile

43 Lake Avenue Extension, Danbury, CT 06811. Phone: 203-837-9226.

BRANDI CARLILE with Jamestown Revival Saturday, July 20 – 6:30 p.m. gates / 8 p.m. showTickets: $39.50 Reserved / $25 Lawn. On the eve of Carlile’s 5th major label album release BEAR CREEK and after almost a decade of extensive touring, the trio and self-confessed “road dogs” and “dirty pioneers” are back with a bang. But it’s not record sales, industry accolades or commercial success that make Brandi Carlile a uniquely compelling artist; in fact some would say she has purposely gone out of her way to avoid it, “I would never write commercially or dress commercially or behave in any way that would inspire mainstream success”. It’s tales from the road, where she and the twins have spent the best part of their careers building Carlile’s fan base and audience, whilst remaining under the industry radar, that tells you the story of who she really is.

Sharon Audubon Center,Hummingbirds @ Home w/ Geoff LeBaron

325 Cornwall Bridge Rd., Sharon, CT Phone: (860) 364-0520.

1:00pm. Audubon has an incredible tradition of citizen science. And, that tradition is expanding with the roll out of our newest citizen science initiative, Hummingbirds at Home. Hummingbirds at Home will use the power of Audubon to build a continent-wide network of citizen scientists to help uncover how hummingbirds are affected by climate change and provide the information necessary to devise actions to help them. Hummingbirds at Home is Audubon's first all-digital, mobile citizen science program. It leverages existing technology with ground-breaking innovation to crowd source rigorous science. Using a mobile-optimized web portal and smart phones apps, people from across the United States can report their hummingbird sightings. The data collected will help us understand how climate change, flowering patterns and feeding by people are impacting hummingbirds. Recent studies show that the blooming of hummingbird flowers and arrival of the hummingbirds in their breeding areas are getting out of sync. The Hummingbirds at Home website and app help people set up a patch in their yard, garden, porch, window box, park – or just about anywhere – where they can do plant surveys to keep track of hummingbirds and what they feed on. Sightings also can be logged outside a patch. During this program, Geoff LeBaron of Audubon will give a brief introduction to the Hummingbirds at Home program, before screening the PBS/Nature program called "Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air."
