It's another live music performance on the library lawn and reading terrace! Take a musical rock 'n' roll tour through time when we head back to the Birth of Rock, 1963 thru 1969. The calendar says we'll be celebrating Independence Day in the USA, but we're planning for a British invasion in Granby.
Special guest vocalist Debra Argosy joins the musical talent.
There's no admission fee; it's general seating with your lawn chair or blanket. All ages welcome. Program moves indoors in poor weather. Look to the library website or Facebook page for updates.
