All Library locations are closed today, Monday, September 1, in observance of Labor Day.
December 17, 2008
On Saturday, January 10, at 2 p.m. the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St., plays host to Yurtfolk as it presents its debut CD, Anyone Can Sing, a family-friendly folk mix of dance tunes, lullabies, and Spanish-language songs.
The group, consisting of LuAnne Harley and Brian Kruschwitz, makes its home in Indiana in an actual yurt (a dwelling that originally was designed to be somewhat portable for the nomadic herders in the high, windy plains of Mongolia). Among the songs on the CD is the title track, inspired by themes presented in Horace and Morris Join the Chorus (But What About Dolores)? by James Howe, “Go to Sleep My Darlin’,” a lullaby that examines how animals go to sleep, and then closes with wishes to dream of a world of peace.
Admission is free. Call 816.701.3407 to indicate your interest in attending or you may RSVP online. Free parking is available in the Library District Parking Garage at 10th and Baltimore.
