Folk Music Concert with Andy & Judy Daigle

Saturday August 20 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

 

Andy and Judy Daigle play the guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and other instruments. They will perform original songs in many different styles, such as traditional Folk, roots music, country swing or bluegrass. We invite the audience to participate by singing along, clapping, or stomping to the original tunes.

 

As contemporary folk singer/songwriters, Andy and Judy will also tell stories through their songs – many of which are based on historical events, times, or places. The audience will learn about the tradition of folk singing as evidenced through their learning and singing of new songs in the spirit of community.

 

“[Andy and Judy] are lovely to work with and incredibly gifted musicians. Telling stories as they play and engaging openly with the audience, they bring a genuine presence to the stage that is hard to find.” – Julie Howard, Adult Programming Librarian, Ocean City Free Public Library, Ocean City, NJ

 

Andy and Judy’s story songs have been described as positive and uplifting. The characters and themes are very relatable to personal experiences that many of the audience members have had. Often, one of their songs will open the door to a discussion on a historical topic.

 

This concert is free and open to all. No registration is required. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
