Infinity Hall Live CPTV’s New Series of Concerts from Norfolk

Showcases Folk Troubadour Jonathan Edwards

 
Premieres Friday, July 8 at 11 p.m. on Connecticut Public Television (CPTV)
 
Infinity Hall Live, airing Fridays at 11 p.m. on Connecticut Public Television (CPTV), is a new concert series unlike any that the public television network has ever produced, because it has a special connection to the Nutmeg State: Each episode is taped at Infinity Hall, a stunning 19th century music venue located in Norfolk, Connecticut.
 
On Friday, July 8 at 11 p.m. on CPTV, Infinity Hall Live showcases veteran folk singer/songwriter Jonathan Edwards, best known for his 1971 classic “Sunshine.” The song – a fierce proclamation of protest and independence set to deceptively upbeat music – became an anthem for numerous young people who opposed the Vietnam War.
 
Today, Edwards seems more comfortable as a laid-back troubadour than a political radical. Often performing on stage barefoot, Edwards demonstrates an expertise with the guitar, mandolin, and accordion to create his own brand of acoustic folk-rock. His heart-felt lyrics and easy-going style continue to please his longtime fans as well as win over new ones.
 
“I love playing rooms like this,” Edwards said of Infinity Hall. “[It’s like] we’re playing in a big guitar …or a Steinway grand piano. It feels like we’re inside something like that and the music just vibrates and lives very much in a place like this.”
 
Infinity Hall Live features world-class musicians giving powerful performances in an intimate setting, and viewers are granted front-row seats—without having to leave the comfort of their own homes. Additionally, each episode gives viewers an exclusive peek behind the scenes, complete with artist interviews and a backstage look at concert preparations.
 
This new CPTV local series combines engaging contemporary artists with the old-fashioned joy of stripped-down, authentic performances. Plus, it showcases enjoy the thrill of seeing a Connecticut landmark brought to rollicking life.
