RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- JD Souther, an American songwriter, will be in concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, June 20 at 8 p.m.

On his latest album, "Tenderness," released May 2015, Souther balances his pop and jazz sensibilities paying particular homage to his earliest influences, the geniuses of the 20th Century Great American Songbook, while maintaining the signature qualities that have made him one of the true contemporary giants of American song.
