May 15 silver tea at the Pleasant Hill Library--revised

Music and Tea at the Library
As part of Dakota County Libraries' Silver Tea Series, the Pleasant Hill Library will host popular local folksingers Curtis and Loretta on Thursday May 15. The performance will begin at 1 p.m. Curtis & Loretta's music comes straight from the heart. The husband and wife duo's extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and carefully chosen traditional pieces from the British Isles, America, and beyond.
Their current menagerie includes Celtic harp, mandocello, mandolin, guitars, clawhammer banjo, and National steel ukulele, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica, and shakers. Curtis' down-home sense of humor and Loretta's theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of
side-trips in between.

After the performance, the library will provide a tea reception in the rotunda of the library. There is no charge for the performance and no reservations are needed. Space is limited.
