Polk County Public Library and the PCPL Friends of the Library are proud and excited to present “HeartSongs,” a year of performance artistry.
On August 1st the series will feature Polk county luthier Jay Lichty. In less than four years Lichty Guitars has grown from Jay building his first instrument (just for fun) to having built over 100 instruments and shipping them to an international customer base. Jay will be playing familiar and original tunes on a variety of different guitar and ukulele models and sharing a bit of the Lichty Guitars’ story.
The year’s journey of HeartSongs began on May 2nd with a performance by Jim Farrell, a well known playwright/poet/singer/songwriter. Each month of the coming year, performers who are either born in Polk County or are now residents of Polk County will be “on stage” in the library to entertain attendees.
Up and coming acts include Bradley Ditto, Phil and Gaye Johnson, Jay Lichty, Bob Child, The Blue Ridge Rounders, Eddie and Carol Ramsey, Marilyn McRedie, The Battle Axe Band, an “Open Mike” night and HeartSongs Circle. All performances are free and open to the public.
