Garden Concert Series: The Gliders

Sunday, May 19, 2019, 2 p.m.

Join us for an afternoon of music in the beautiful garden area beside Northeast Library. Bring a chair, sit back and enjoy the sounds of The Gliders.

A long-time fixture within the Capitol Hill neighborhood, The Gliders are an acoustic four-piece band featuring roots music from blues to rockabilly to soul to country. Founding member Bro Larkin plays guitar and hails from Silver Spring, MD. Marbury Weathered is Greenbelt, MD’s most famous harmonica player, and he is also a lead vocalist. Janet and Bill Gilmore are Capitol Hill residents and active users of Northeast LibraryBill laying down the rhythm on upright bass and Janet providing lead vocals, harmonies and some great ukulele strumming. Janet is well known around the Hill as a music educator both from a private piano studio and as the first music teacher at Two Rivers PCS. All four members are retired and enjoy getting together to play. You can find them on Facebook for a closer look before the big event.

This concert will kick off the 2019 season of Northeast Library's Garden Concert Series, which features a local musical group or performer each month during the summer. This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Northeast Library.

Please note: In the event of inclement weather, concerts are held inside the library.
