The Stacks: Blues/Gospel/Folk Band

Blues and gospel collide with kitchen-party fiddle riffs and crystal clear vocals in the music of The Stacks. Come tap your feet as singer-songwriter-guitarist Andy Stack and Grammy-winning fiddler Tania Elizabeth and their Americana band fill the Library’s Great Hall with music that is described as an intoxicating blend of old and new, and the fiddle playing as nothing short of mind-blowing.

The Norfolk Festival Listening Club with Jim Nelson

Jim Nelson returns to Norfolk with his popular Norfolk Festival Listening Club program, featuring a string quartet from the Yale School of Music playing Beethoven’s Quartet op. 18 no. 4. Designed to be fun and engaging, this is an opportunity for both the experienced concertgoer and the classical music novice to enjoy an informal discussion of chamber music among friends, old and new. No background in music is necessary — all you need is an active curiosity. Members of the audience are encouraged to participate with questions and comments.

Programs are free. Reservations required. Graciously funded by the Norfolk Library Associates.

Lúnasa!

The Norfolk Library’s celebration of St. Patrick’s Day has become an annual event for fans of the Emerald Isle. Once again we will host a lively evening of traditional Irish music and fare with the ever-popular Irish band, Lúnasa. While still maintaining Celtic musical traditions, their inventive arrangements and bass driven grooves have steered Irish acoustic music into surprising new territory. Dubbed “the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet” by the New York Times, the all-star quintet has become one of the most popular bands on the international Celtic music scene. Join the Norfolk Library for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration you’ll never forget.
