Trumpeter Taylor Haskins plays music from his new CD in Westport July 22nd

July 3rd wasn't a good day for an outdoor concert in the town of Westport. Heavy rains, winds and power outages made for a rough start to the July 4th weekend. One of the many events that fell victim to the storms was the opening concert in the Soundwaves Concert series in Ballard Park. The concert was to feature Grammy Award winning trumpeter Taylor Haskins along with the Meadowmount School of Music String Orchestra playing selections from Taylor's latest CD, Fuzzy Logic. Taylor is also the co-director of the concert series with his wife Catherine, and after much scrambling, the concert has been re-scheduled for this July 22nd at 7:30.
