Roode Concert Series: Connor Holdridge

06/23/2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join us this summer for the Mystic & Noank Library’s annual Roode Memorial Concert Series. It’s a series of free outdoor concerts on the grounds of the Mystic & Noank Library. These concerts celebrate the life of Mystic & Noank Library patrons Agnes and Carl Roode. The Roodes were longtime Mystic residents who loved music and the Library. Their family continues the tradition of honoring their legacy with a wonderful lineup of talented musicians in 2023. This summer’s series features three musicians from different genres and musical stylings. Please bring your own lawn chair, blankets, or other seating to your comfort level. In the event of rain, indoor attendance will be limited, and the Library will welcome the first 50 guests to arrive.

Performer Bio
Connor Holdridge is a jazz guitarist, composer and improvisor.

As versatile as he is gifted, Connor easily maneuvers the various music scenes of D.C. and Baltimore, to include his involvement in gypsy jazz group Ultrafaux, jazz/Neo-soul band Attic Sessions and his work as a sideman for artists all around the area.

No stranger to the stage, Connor has had the pleasure of performing around the nation with various notable acts, including shows at The Kennedy Center with Nataly Merezhuk, An Die Musik with Duved Dunayevsky, and Blues Alley with Stephane Wrembel. He has also toured and played extensively as a part of gypsy jazz group Ultrafaux led by guitarist Michael Joseph Harris, to include performances at the Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest, Charm City Django Jazz Fest and an opening show for the National Symphony Orchestra.

A promising young composer, Connor has developed a body of work to be featured as a part of his residency at the Strathmore’s AMP in April of 2023. Reminiscent of gypsy jazz with a contemporary spin, these acoustic pieces written for two guitars, bass, cajon and strings display Connor’s mastery of his instrument, his embrace of Django’s music and his sensitivity to his surroundings.
