Grammy winner Jose Feliciano to perform at Fairfield Museum
An intimate evening featuring nine-time Grammy Award winner Jose Feliciano is planned at Fairfield Museum and History Center on Saturday, March 29, at 8 p.m.
Feliciano is recognized in the museum’s new exhibit, “Fairfield’s Rockin’ Top Ten,” as one of America’s most renowned musicians who have called Fairfield and surrounding communities home and have created some of their best work here.
“Fairfield’s Rockin’ Top Ten,” sponsored by First Niagara, celebrates 10 musicians who have helped create the community’s musical legacy and features rare photographs, music videos and iconic artifacts.
Tickets are $75 per person and include Henri Reserve champagne and dessert by Sweet and Simple following the concert. To purchase tickets, visit fairfieldhistory.org.
Feliciano’s accomplishments include being awarded more than 45 gold and platinum records. He has 19 Grammy nominations and nine wins, and earned the LARAS Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Referred to as the world’s leading “crossover artist,” Feliciano is well-known for songs such as “Light My Fire,” which topped the charts globally in 1968 and “Feliz Navidad.”
“It’s a great pleasure for me to not only be a part of this historic yet vibrant community of Fairfield, but also to be numbered among some of music’s greatest names who have, over the years, also been fortunate enough to call it home,” Feliciano said.
Feliciano has lived with his family in a more than 275-year-old home, formerly a tavern, in Fairfield County for more than 20 years and gives his time and talent to the community.
