Musician Bill Lauf, of Warren, will perform in concert Dec. 1 at 5 and 8 p.m. in Litchfield.
Mr. Lauf will perform songs from his new CD, "For the Snow," which features songs about and inspired by the coldest season.
Most of the songs were written as a result of Lauf's being snowed in on Orcas Island, Wash., during Christmas of 2008 at the home of another former Litchfield resident and former Paul Winter Consort vocalist, Susan Osborn.
A suggestion of some songwriting by Ms. Osborn led to three months of writing a weekly song and performing it for the other via Skype.
It is Mr. Lauf's first release since "Gray Diner at 5am" in 2001.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door.
