Cowboy Music and more at the Kearney Public Library with Kerry Grombacher and Aspen Black
Two western troubadours are riding into Kearney for two days of music and writing at the Kearney Public Library. Kerry Grombacher and Aspen Black perform nationwide for arts councils, house concerts, festivals, museums, and libraries. They lead creative writing workshops, as well, and have worked with the Kearney Library’s Writers Group since it was formed, five years ago.
• On Monday, March 23, 2020, Kerry Grombacher and Aspen Black will meet with the Writers Group for a 12 o’clock noon workshop that will focus on turning everyday stories into memoir. Workshop fee is $10 (lunch included). Pre-registration requested.
• Also, on Monday at 3:00 p.m., they will lead a Youth Ukulele Workshop for beginners and intermediate players.
• On Tuesday, March 24, they will perform a free concert, “Songs & Stories of the American West,” at 7:00 p.m.
“It’s an honor to be asked to return to the Kearney Public Library with our cowboy songs and western ballads, and a treat for us to have another opportunity to sing for the great Kearney audience,” said songwriter Kerry Grombacher recently. “And we’re both looking forward to meeting with the Writers’ Group again.”
Aspen Black added, “We’ve had several workshops with the group, and they are always rewarding, both for the writers and for us, as facilitators. I’m also looking forward to leading the ukulele workshop, and meeting a new group of talented young people in Kearney.”
The Kearney Public Library is located at 2020 1st Avenue in Downtown Kearney. All three programs are open to the public and free of charge.
