Evening Book Group
Monday, September 8th, 6:30 pm

Evening Book Group is starting a new theme this fall, exploring early 20th century literature.  We are planning to look at some very famous works, some now less well-known, and some from other parts of the world.  Anyone is welcome to join the group.

The September book is “The Golden Arrow,” by Mary Webb.  It is a romantic novel of the English countryside, featuring the village people rather than the lords and ladies, published in 1916 and set in an earlier time.

Jazz Guitar with Briand Morrison
Tuesday, August 26th, 6:00 pm

Briand Morrison began his musical career around the family’s dining room table, was in a rock band by 6th grade, hired as a guitar teacher by the West Bank School of Music at the age of 16, and has continued studying music and performing ever since. While his musical style has really evolved over the years, he describes himself currently as a “Blues/Rock act that is reminiscent of a Hendrixy Stevie Ray Allman Bros Early Clapton sound – a refined 60/70s style with a flavorful chord or two utilizing a looper, drum machine and some vocal.” He also keeps true to the classical jazz, wearing a nice tux and playing a Gibson L5.

Morrison’s Jazz performance is sure to be classy; if you’ve ever appreciated the jazz style, then this performance is not one to miss.

For more information about Morrison, or a sneak peak at one of his recorded shows, check out his website at: http://www.briandmorrison.com/index.htm
