Back by popular demand. Chris ‘Citrus’ Sauthoff has performed several times at Central Library and his fan base grows with every visit. Experience the sitar and its ability to transport listeners. When George Harrison and The Beatles befriended Ravi Shankar, the sitar made its way from a traditional Indian instrument to a part of contemporary music. It is now heard in a wide range of musical genres including world and techno. ‘Citrus’ brings his signature style to the sitar – the soul of traditional Indian music. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
Acclaimed Celtic guitarist Jerry Barlow is a virtuoso musician, a warm and accessible performer, and a world-class storyteller. His repertoire is composed of a synthesis of traditional music from the British Isles and his own original Celtic-inspired compositions. Barlow’s music transports the listener across time and space on an imaginary journey to a rustic Irish fishing village, the misty Scottish Highlands or an enchanted English forest. Enjoy the arrangements that have been described as “music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.” http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
We’ve captured a few strays from the band Stray Dogs; Joe Rigley, Eric Woods and Anne Rigley are teaming up to perform some of the nostalgic tunes of a bygone era. The thing is, these stray dogs are also hep cats – so all of their music, from whatever age it’s culled, happens to sound very ‘of the moment,’ too. Eric's extraordinarily gentle touch on the guitar alongside Joe's mellow bass backs Anne's remarkably sweet, pure and honest voice. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
There really is nothing like a bell choir – unless it is a small group bell choir. We have hosted the Castle Rock Community Ringers for three wonderful concerts. Now they are bringing their unique Little Belles to our music series. All the chiming, just in a smaller space! Enjoy their eclectic mix of handbell tunes that make a joyful noise in our great hall. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
