misc_none 7:00 PM Our Huckleberry Friend: An Evening with Barbara Slater and the Music of Johnny Mercer - Weaver Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Joyce May   434-2453   eplibraryjoyce@yahoo.com
   

Weaver Library is proud to present Vocalist Barbara Slater in a musical program celebrating Johnny Mercer, America’s Poet Laureate.  Talented keyboard artist and composer Kent Hewitt will join Barbara along with Todd Baker on bass.

Think of any American popular-song hit from the late 1930s through the mid-1960s, and there’s a decent chance that Johnny Mercer wrote the words for it. “Accentuate the Positive,” “Days of Wine and Roses,” “Skylark,” “Satin Doll,” “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby,” ”Moon River”… Johnny Mercer’s songs capture the sound and soul of America, reaching across boundaries of time, gender and race to talk of loneliness, longing, and lighthearted fun.  Frank Sinatra, who recorded many of his tunes, once said, “A Johnny Mercer lyric is all the wit you wish you had and all the love you ever lost.”

Barbara’s love of great American music and her smooth and sultry voice embrace each line of Mercer’s lyrics with warmth and enthusiasm. Critics praise her "her captivating style, interpretive skills and absolutely beautiful tone". Join us at the library and reward yourself for completing your tax return!  This concert is free and open to all.  Dancing allowed!

healing and wholeness.They speak to us with strange stories and riddles that when
decoded can help us to focus on issues that are important to us, and offer
suggestions about how to proceed.

This presentation will introduce you to the basics of dreams and dreamwork so that
you can begin to capture the important personal messages that come from the depths
of your own inner wisdom during the sleeping hours.  Although we will not be
interpreting individual dreams, you will  learn the importance of dreams, the
different kinds of dreams, how to capture them and keep them for future work in your
personal dream journal.
