Musical Immigration and Fusion

Next Thursday, April 14th, at 6:30 p.m. Friends of the South Portland Library will present Two Old Friends, a story-telling in song about how immigrants came to this country from Ireland, Scotland, and Great Britain, bringing their melodies and instruments. The duo will show how the old time country ballads of the Appalachians are rooted in the newcomers' tunes.

Two Old Friends is free and open to the public. It will be held in the community room (downstairs) at the main library, at the corner of Broadway and Cottage Road. Entrance and parking are off of Highland Avenue next to Brown Elementary School.
