CRANFORD—The Friends of the Cranford Public Library will welcome the Wandering Bards on Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue. Admission to the program is free and all are welcome.
The Bards perform down-home funk ‘n’ folk on acoustic instruments. Between and among them, the five-man troupe plays harmonica, kazoo, accordion, musical saw, jaw harp, bass, cajon, kalimba, steel pan, violin, guitar, banjitar and djembe. Giving off a neo-Vaudevillian vibe, they’ll make you laugh, sing and do any old thing with their heady mix of blue-eyed blues, dark Gypsy grooves, and foot-stomping party tunes.
The Bards appear regularly in a number of clubs in the Union County area and have also appeared at the Fire on the Mountain Solstice Celebration in Kintnersville, Pa., the Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch, the Newark Bears Baseball Block Party, and the Black Potato Festival in Clinton.
For more information about the program, call the library at 1-908-709-7272 and ask for John Malar or email the library at firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about the Wandering Bards can be found at wanderingbards.com.
