Please join the Friends of the Jackson Public Library for a Family Dance Party featuring live music from Miss Maybell and Slimpickin’s on Saturday July 23, 2016 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm outside on the lawn at the Jackson Public Library, located at 52 Main Street in Jackson, NH.
There will be games for the kids, and picnic food available for purchase from Sweeney Sensations catering. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy this fun, free family-friendly event! Join us rain or shine, with all activities moving into the Library in the unlikely case of inclement weather.
Local favorites Miss Maybell and Slimpickin’s are a musical duo based in Jackson, NH. They play American Roots, Jazz, Blues, Country, and Ragtime music from the 1920-40s, as well as classic original tunes. Wherever they play they bring smiles to the faces of those around them, and are guaranteed to be like no other band you have ever seen before.
Slimpickin’s has been playing guitar for more than fifteen years, and with his undying love for old music has truly mastered the classic finger-style blues guitar of some of the most amazing pickers in early American music, such as Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, and Big Bill Bronzy. Miss Maybell, has always had a deep love of music and has been singing, and playing one instrument or another for her whole life. She has a immense attachment to the great woman singers of the past such as Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday. She also plays Banjo, Washboard, Guitar and Kazoo, while stomping away on her suitcase kick-drum.
Needless to say Miss Maybell & Slimpickin’s are not only technicians of quite difficult music they also know how to make the audience have a fun time!
The presentation is free and open to the public although a $5.00 donation is welcome to offset event expenses. For more information, please contact the Jackson Public Library at 603-383-9731.
