Through dynamic performance, demonstration, and audience participation, RiverJack provides an introduction to the processes of looping, songwriting, and recording, and leaves participants with a finished product that they are proud to call their own. RiverJack uses “loop” (live recording) technology to achieve a full band sound by layering percussion, bass, acoustic guitars, harmonica,trumpet and vocals. During a 60- to 75-minute session, participants will explore the craft of songwriting by writing and recording a song that is uniquely their own, based on a theme or curriculum-related topic. They will work cooperatively to form a musical composition by: brainstorming ideas, writing lyrics, composing a melody, and gaining personal experience with the creative process. The song is then rehearsed and recorded, and the library will receive a CD/mp3 containing the participants’ song.

Biedermann, Peter Instrumental Acoustic Guitar Concert Music
100% original solo instrumental music performed on 6 and 12 string guitars? Hmmm...sounds like a hard sell. Not really. The reason it works is simple. All you need is a performer who loves what he audience of engaging and open minds that is willing to go for the ride. I do believe that is exactly the type of individual that would attend a musical performance in a library. While PB's influences are all over the map and not limited to any specific musical genre, all the listener has to do is close their eyes and let their imagination be their guide. Check out his website for more info as well as some newly posted YouTube videos that will give you an idea of the type of material you would hear at one of his concerts.

James engages each disparate audience in a participatory journey distilled from his travels, musically monitoring the pulse of the human condition, bringing us closer to our world and each other. “A talented entertainer of no little range and versatility.

Cadley, John and Catherine The Cadleys: New Acoustic, Traditional Roots Music
John and Cathy Cadley are one of the area’s most entertaining and popular duos. Following in the tradition of great male-female duets like Ian & Sylvia and Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons, they show how the simplicity of two voices and two acoustic instruments can produce powerful music. Their repertoire draws on the traditional bluegrass of Bill Monroe and the Stanley Brothers, the tight harmonies of the Louvin Brothers, the “new acoustic” sounds of Alison Krauss and Claire Lynch, and John’s own originals, which have been recorded by national bluegrass artists such as Tony Trischka, Jim Hurst, Missy Raines, and Lou Reid, who, with Vince Gill and Ricky Skaggs singing harmony, took John’s song, “Time,” to the #1 spot on the national bluegrass charts for three consecutive months. Their live concerts feature everything from traditional mountain ballads and bluegrass classics like “Bury Me Beneath the Willow” and “Blue and Lonesome,” to Alison Krauss’ “The Lucky One,” to the Louvin Brother’s “Cash on the Barrelhead.” For an evening of soulful duet singing and tasty picking on guitar and mandolin, the Cadleys are not to me missed.
