Bring a book that makes you think of a particular piece of music. We’ll listen to the song and you can explain the association, then we’ll use Spotify to make a playlist out of everything we’ve heard. Register online or by calling (847) 448-8620.

This is a Rhythm on Tuesdays: Adult Summer Reading Program event!



Tuesday, July 14, 7 pm, Community Meeting Room, Main Library

Sing, dance and drum your way around the world with Jutta & the Hi-Dukes at this all-ages, interactive performance. Explore the world of rhythm with Evanston's eclectic, energetic, multi-instrumentalist band as they transport your soul (and soles) on an exciting worldbeat dance tour of Balkan, Gypsy, Dixie, Klezmer, Greek, and Scan music. The Round Table's Natalie Wainwright wrote: “[Their] music is exciting, and listeners will find it hard to keep from leaping up to dance.” So bring your dancing feet as the Hi-Dukes will lead you through the fun circle dances that go with their great music!
