CEARFIELD – The final program of the 2006 summer teen program will be held on Tuesday at 6 P.M. at the Joseph and Elizabeth Shaw Library in Clearfield and will feature Detroit’s high-energy rock band, The High Strung.
The Shaw Public Library was presented with the opportunity to have The High Strung in May of this year and jumped at the chance to have such a hip and trendy program.
“We are always looking for ways to attract the young people of the community to the library,” stated Paula Marshall, library director.
“What better way to do that than to have a concert that features the music that is so popular with this age group.” Last year, project coordinator Bill Hammer shared that The High Strung rocked their way through libraries in Michigan offering teens “an electrifying show filled with sunny three-part harmonies and witty, lyrical bravado.”
This year the band went nationwide and is appearing in various libraries across the nation and even appearing on National Public Radio.
“We really want to have a great turn-out for the show,” commented Marshall, “It truly is exciting to be one of the libraries on the tour.”
The High Strung will play a full set of their “Beatlesque jams,” and participants will get “the first hand low-down about making records for major music industry labels.”
The band will also share an “nsider’s view of creating a video for MTV and learn about touring on the road year-round all across the country.
The program will last around 90 minutes and will include a question and answer period ,and the audience will help the band to write a song.
Information about the band can be found on their Website at www.thehighstrung.com.
“Come to the library on Tuesday,” stated Marshall. “We have some great door prizes and are anticipating a great night.”
