The fiddle-playing singer-songwriter Carrie Rodriguez knows audiences in Connecticut are used to performers belting out the familiar songs of well-loved artists rather than their own original material. So when she plays two dates here this month, she plans a when-in-Rome approach.I had no idea that Connecticut audiences had such a bad reputation. This is the first I've heard of it.
I've only seen Carrie Rodriguez once -- when she and Chip Taylor were part of a 2006 River-to-River Festival bill with Andy Statman and Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder. It was an excellent evening of music.
