Halloween Month Music

October is coming and that means it's one of my favorite times of the year: Halloween Month!  31 days of build-up to one spooktacular night of candy, costumes, and creeps.  In order to get into the holiday spirit, the library is providing a couple of fun Halloween themed programs, so if you're feeling brave enough you should be sure to join us for some spooky fun.  And while you're at it, why not stop by the library to pick up some spooky soundtracks?  We have music from classic horror and suspense films, as well as some of the old classics to chill your bones.

Legacy of Music

Musical Anime

 

Two of my favorite things are music and anime (Japanese animation/cartoons).  So, when I find something that combines the two, I'm incredibly happy.  For those of you who are like me, and are looking for a way to combine these two interests, let me suggest a couple of must-see musical anime for you.

And, of course, if you don't know much about anime, but are interested in it, why not give one of the titles on this list a try?

5 Fictional Bands You Can Find at Your Library

Everyone has their favorite bands.  Personally, one of my all-time favorites is the British musical duo The Bishop and the Warlord.

Winter Woes

Sick

The weather outside is turning cold again, and people are starting to get sick.  On days when the cold or illness has got you down, why not stay home?  And if your'e staying home, sleeping on the couch, why not put on a good movie or some good music to get you through the day?

Remembering David Bowie (1947-2016)

David Bowie is a legend.  And like all legends, even though he is gone, that doesn't mean that he'll be forgotten.  Now, before we get started, I'd like to preface this by saying that I was never a Bowie fan.  That doesn't mean I hated him--I just never had the chance to check him out.  And now, I feel really sad that I've waited until now to really look into the work of a man who is truly regarded as an amazing artist.

Celebrating 50 Years of Alan Leatherwood!

Cleveland's own Alan Leatherwood celebrates OVER 50 years in music with the release of new CD collections.

Alan Leatherwood (Cassaro) has been a fixture in the music industry for over 50 years. Mahalo Records released Alan's first record nationally in 1963. A couple of years later Alan was on the Old Town label in New York City. Alan became the featured weekly house act at "Faragher's Back Room" and later performed on the Fredana College Coffee House Circuit where he performed throughout the U.S. and Canada for several years.

Winter Music

 

It's cold out!  And for those of you who haven't been outside yet today, it's snowing, too!  I don't know about you, but I was getting pretty spoiled with this warm December weather, and I'm just not ready to give it up yet.  Yes, I should be happy to have had it while it lasted, but I'm still going into winter kicking and screaming.

October Tunes

October is here, and Halloween is just over a week away.  As the day quickly approaches for ghosts, ghouls, and all manner of spooky, creepy, freaky things, why not check out some "scary good" music to set the mood?
