Silver Bay Public Library News

Briand Morrison, a solo jazz guitarist, will be appearing throughout the Arrowhead Library System. Enjoy smooth, warm, and innovative music that will appeal to both jazz aficionados and anyone who loves good guitar. A free program will be offered at the Silver Bay Public Library on Aug. 26 at 1 p.m.

From Morrison:

"I now have great fun playing for crowds with my new blues/rock act that is reminiscent of a Hendrixy Stevie Ray Allman Bros Early Clapton sound — a refined 1960s and '70s style with a flavorful chord or two utilizing a looper, drum machine and some vocal (I can really sing now!). I write my own tunes with some vocals and then improvise over grooves that blend into each other for literally hours and can sustain a good four-hour night. People go wild over it. I think it is because I play an assortment of styles over a period that appeal to a wide range of people. I also have an elegant and classy jazz act ideal for dining rooms and weddings. I wear a tuxedo and play jazz standards on my Gibson L5 and Hendriksen JazzAmp."

Don't miss this free opportunity at the library.

It is another program sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and tax dollars.
