Are you interested in local history?
Does an afternoon of bluegrass music sounds like the perfect way to pass the time?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, join us on October 3rd from 2-3 PM at the Elkton Central library, to hear the music and stories of Zane Campbell, a local bluegrass artist and the nephew of the late local bluegrass legend, Ola Belle Reed.
Zane will be giving an hour long performance where he will play his songs, and tell the stories behind those songs. Spend some time immersing yourself in his music, while gaining a deeper appreciation for our area and the history behind it.
If you want to learn more about the Campbell family and Ola Belle Reed, there are many resources available for you to do so. The library has Zane’s CD, as well as Ola Belle’s CDs and her book, My Epitaph; A Documentary in Song and Lyric.
In addition to the library resources, a new book about Ola Belle Reed has recently been released from Dust to Digital and gives an in-depth look at her life and includes 58 newly-remastered recording and texts.
We hope to see you there!
