Copper Tom incorporates cool, sometimes arcane, rhythms into accessible songs. He draws inspiration from American roots music, including old time country, blues and roots rock and roll. He might even throw in a little New Orleans funk, Trinidadian calypso, reggae and some fun tales to boot. Join us on Wednesday, July 25 from 7:00-8:00 PM as we sing and dance to Copper Tom's eclectic music.
We are pleased to be part of the Detroit Institute of Arts Inside|Out program, which brings high-quality reproductions of masterpieces from the DIA's collection to the streets. There are six pieces displayed in Canton, including Young Woman with a Violin by Italian painter Orazio Gentileschi, on display at the library. The painting, circa 1612, depicts the patron saint of musicians, Cecelia.
The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation sponsors this program.
