If you haven’t heard: Libraries Rock! Not only is that true, it is also the theme of the summer reading program, and things are rockin’ at Topsham Public Library.
Join musician, Marc Black, on Wednesday, August 1 at 6pm for a special multimedia experience about the history of the baby-boomer generation. Black performs a wide range of popular songs including favorites like “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, and “Blowin’ in the Wind” while you reflect on the history and sing along.
In high school, Black’s band, the Blades of Grass, reached the top forty and performed alongside the biggest acts of the day including the Doors, Van Morrison and Neil Diamond. He has since recorded more than a dozen CDs including one ‘pick hit’ in Billboard Magazine and another that was recognized as a ‘minor masterpiece’ by famed music producer John Hammond Sr. In June, 2014, Black was inducted into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame.
Mark your calendars, and get your groove on!
