Tom Sieling, a singer, guitarist and banjoist, will present the program, “Howl at the Moon with a Hero Tune (Mostly Hapless Heroes, That Is!)”
“He is very entertaining and has come recommended by the local librarians who have had him come to their libraries,” Mulcahy said.
Sieling, who hails from Newfield, NY, accompanies himself on guitar, banjo, harmonica, and a drum machine, and all songs include parts for the whole family.
Nicole Carner, former library director of the Pember Library in Granville, NY, said in a news release that Sieling is sure to raise the most reticent out of their seats.
“We ‘howled at the moon, sang a wild thing tune,’ and wanted more,” she said.
Sieling’s June 29 visit—a day that falls on the library's designated "Music Mondays"—also reflects the theme of the nationwide summer reading program, which is “Every Hero Has a Story.”
"We want to encourage students of all ages, and their families to come out to enjoy an evening of storytelling and music,” Mulcahy said. “Tom has been to many local libraries and all have enjoyed his performance as a one-man-band/storyteller. This will be a Music Monday not to be missed.”
