The Hood River Library Hosts Additional Concerts this Summer in the Library Gardens
 
Visit the Hood River Library in July and August for musical concerts including The Morals and Casey Wykes. All concerts will take place in the library gardens.
 
On Wednesday, July 18, at 7 p.m., the library will host the folk-pop duo The Morals.  The Morals features Casey Jarman and Ben Hubbird. They have been performing together under that name since 2001. They play campfire folk-pop with honest, insightful lyrics and unexpected harmonies. They have been known to stomp and clap, but they are not one of those stomp-and-clap folk-pop bands you hear on pharmaceutical advertisements. They also run Party Damage Records.

Singer-songwriter Casey Wykes, will visit the library at 7 p.m. on August 1st.  Casey Wykes was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and lived in that middle-of-the-road metropolis for approximately his first twenty years of life. He picked up a harmonica at the age of seven from an antique store. Although he always had a good ear for music and sang from early childhood for fun, Casey didn’t consider himself a musician or have any aspiration of becoming a songwriter until some friends of his back in Indianapolis had formed a band and encouraged him to play along with his harmonica. This gave him a shove into the realm of inspiration, and Casey began writing songs, creating melodies on the harmonica. At the age of twenty-three Casey moved to Washington and began singing his songs at open mics without instrumentation.
 
These programs are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the Hood River County Library District at 541-386-2535, info@hoodriverlibrary.org, or visit their website at http://hoodriverlibrary.org
