Entrance fee slashed for Wynona Judd Alive@Five concert

Concert-goers will save a little bit of money when they come to hear the commanding voice of country star Wynona Judd at Alive@Five on Thursday, July 18.

The concert, which starts at 5 p.m., will set attendees back $10 instead of the usual $15. The Dirty Gems and Roses & Revolutions are set to open the show.

This is the second time that the Downtown Special Services District, the organizer of Alive@Five, is lowering the price of admission — a means of boosting lower-than-usual attendance at Downtown Stamford’s popular summer concert series.

As one half of country duo the Judds (with her mom, Naomi), Judd was one of the most popular female country stars of the 1980s. As a solo artist, she sustained her popularity (three of her albums went platinum) while expanding her sonic palette (pop, roots rock, blues, gospel, Southern R&B). Judd launched her new band, The Big Noise, two years ago, and she plans to release a new LP this year.
