Stanley Maxwell returns for their first live performance in over three years, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of their first concert at Connecticut's Old State House in August 2002 with a free summer concert at the Farmers Market from Noon to 1pm.

The band had also performed as part of the venue's annual free lunchtime summer concert series in August 2003.

Stop by at lunchtime to hear the Stanley Maxwell quartet play their brand of modern jazz on the west side of Connecticut’s Old State House. Bring your lunch and enjoy the music! Concert begins at Noon and will also be live-streamed on both the venue's Facebook page and YouTube channel. Tickets or reservations are not needed to attend.

This is the first public concert by the quartet in over five years, following their appearance at The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts and Cultural Center in Middletown, Connecticut in May 2017.

Stanley Maxwell also previously performed at the fourth annual Connecticut Brewfest at the Old State House in July 2005, presented by the Connecticut Historical Society Museum and Library and sponsored by the Hartford Advocate.
