Songwriter Pierce Pettis will perform at the Acoustic Celebration concert at St. Stephen\u2019s Church in downtown Ridgefield Sunday, Oct. 20. Pettis, who is touring with David Webb after his new release \u201cFather\u2019s Son\u201d earlier this year, will perform at the church\u2019s north hall at 4 p.m. \u201cSometimes I have to stop listening to a Pierce Pettis track halfway through because he makes me want to give up on songwriting. Pierce is a master musical storyteller, delivering human truth and heartbreaking vulnerability with every tune,\u201d said Justin Paul, the writer and composer of \u201cLaLaLand\u201d and \u201cDear Evan Hansen. \u201cHe\u2019s also an unnecessarily virtuosic guitarist with the voice of some beautiful angel\u2026 All of it completely unfair.\u201d Sing Out Magazine\u2019s critic concurs. \u201cPierce Pettis doesn\u2019t write mere songs, he writes literature,\u201d the magazine said. \u201cEnd to end the songwriting is brilliant.\u201d In addition to Webb, Pettis will be performing with Michael Bolton\u2019s percussionist, Drew McKeon and a bass player from New York. Tickets are $20 ($25 at the door) and are available at acousticcelebration.org. The church is located at 351 Main Street.
