Reading Takes You Everywhere

The Summer Reading Program reading log will expand this year to be an activity log that includes more than reading (such as attending programs, downloading eBooks, etc.). Different levels will be included so everyone can participate all summer, no matter what pace they read and learn. Prizes and activities will be announced soon!

Nathan James and the Rhythm Scratchers

September 2, 2018  2:00pm-3:00pm
Peter Sprague & Rebecca Jade

Peter and Rebecca were just awarded the 2018 Best Jazz Album by the San Diego Music Awards for the stellar "Planet Cole Porter" release. For this concert the two of them will be joined by the very young gifted bassist Sean Hicke. Together they'll take hold of the classic songs of Cole Porter and present them in a new color of samba, funk, salsa, and jazz. “Just One of Those Things” swinging fast and morphing over to funk, “Love For Sale” taking a trip to Cuba, “Night and Day” arcing with the moon in Brazil, and “Every Time We Say Goodbye” nice and gentle just as Cole intended it to be. Plus a few Beatle classics flavored up in a new way. Jump in with us!

Nathan James and the Rhythm Scratchers
Nathan James and the Rhythm Scratchers are one of the most original and authentic acts on the roots and blues scene today. During the past couple years they have toured France, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, Mexico and Canada. Nathan plays his own hand made washboard guitars. 

The Rhythm Scratchers forge a sound that combines elements of 1920's acoustic blues, gospel, amplified juke joint hill country, and uptown swing, mixed with 1960's soulful R&B. Influences range from Big Bill Broonzy, to B.B. King, to James Brown and the Famous Flames.
