Now that Summer Reading is officially ready to rock and roll, the Library is excited to welcome Thad Beach! He'll be performing on Wednesday, June 6th at 12:30 pm. So put on your dancing shoes and get ready to be wowed by this unique and unconventional performer!
It's time to "Rock Your Imagination" as musician and songwriter, Thad Beach transforms a common wooden chair into a musical accompaniment to his original creations and traditional songs. His concerts provide lots of opportunities to participate and he demonstrates a variety of musical instruments. Thad draws from a diverse background in musical styles ranging from traditional, folk, old-time, and country blues to roaring 20’s. His programs feature a variety of string and percussion instruments. Lots of fun for all ages!
In addition to performing, Thad works with children in the schools each year as a teaching artist for preschool through high school, developing and presenting programs on curriculum-related topics. He also devotes time to preserving the history, heritage and cultural aspects of rural areas through song by conducting week-long songwriting residencies for elementary, middle and high schools.
Thad grew up in Ohio, has lived both on the coast and in the mountains of North Carolina and is currently at home in Salina, Kansas. He can be reached through his website at ThadBeachMusic.com.
This show is free and open to all ages!
