DJ Silk (aka Jesse Manno) brings a modern vibe to the great hall. As soothing and complex as a traditional rose tea, this music creates an atmospheric charm in our common, everyday world.

Acclaimed Celtic guitarist Jerry Barlow is a virtuoso musician, a warm and accessible performer, and a world-class storyteller. His repertoire is composed of a synthesis of traditional music from the British Isles and his own original Celtic-inspired compositions. Barlow’s music transports the listener across time and space on an imaginary journey to a rustic Irish fishing village, the misty Scottish Highlands or an enchanted English forest. Enjoy the arrangements that have been described as “music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.” http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
We’ve captured a few strays from the band Stray Dogs; Joe Rigley, Eric Woods and Anne Rigley are teaming up to perform some of the nostalgic tunes of a bygone era. The thing is, these stray dogs are also hep cats – so all of their music, from whatever age it’s culled, happens to sound very ‘of the moment,’ too. Eric's extraordinarily gentle touch on the guitar alongside Joe's mellow bass backs Anne's remarkably sweet, pure and honest voice. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh

Enjoy their eclectic mix of handbell tunes that make a joyful noise in our great hall. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
