Baroque band plays library

The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library will host a performance by Dream Spirit Baroque Band at 2 p.m. Oct. 5 at the library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. The musical group will present Dustbowl Ballads and other songs of the 1930s.

The band consists of Suzanne Stone on the cello, Diana Woodbury playing the violin, Jack Shipley with the dulcimer and recorder and Jon Smart on the guitar. This is an original mix of an unusual group of instruments. Dream Spirit has been performing in the South Lake Tahoe area for more than two years. They have performed at various businesses and community events, most recently at the Valhalla Boathouse Theater and the Mountain Spirit Bookstore.

All are welcome to attend this second in a series of events at the library. The California Council for the Humanities has 142 libraries statewide participating in a reading and story sharing program this October. The mission of the council is to enrich California’s cultural life and strengthen communities through public use of the humanities.

The third program in the series will be a lecture on Tidbits of the Dustbowl Era by historian Lyn Landauer at 7 p.m. Oct. 22.

For more information contact the library at (530) 573-3185. The hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
