Library hosts ‘Blowing in the Wind’ program
Howard’s show will feature music from the so-called golden age of folk music with songs by Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger. His “Blowing in the Wind” program also includes a narrative which provides historical perspective to Americana music of the past 175 years.
Howard, of Lincolnton, is noted for his classical guitar style, smooth vocals and solid harmonica fills.
“I also play enough banjo and 12 string so some people think I can do that too,” Howard said. He often adds his own compositions to the shows, including some funny songs about ax murderers, hippies, cowboy folksingers and motorcycle-riding ladies.
Last April he performed as Mark Twain at Unity Presbyterian Church in Denver. He also performed the “Blowing in the Wind” program at the Shanklin Library.
Howard will have copies of his self-produced album, “Vagabond,” available at the show.
Admission to the show is free. For more information, contact Jackie Shaw at the Charles R. Jonas Library at 704-735-8044. The library is located at 306 W. Main St., Lincolnton.
