Tiny Library Concert featuring Jesse Manley and His Band
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 | 7:00PM — 9:00PM
With the release of his critically acclaimed album, Dust, a recent collaboration with the Colorado Symphony, and five celebrated collaborations with the Denver contemporary ballet company Wonderbound, Jesse Manley has made a name for himself as a singer, songwriter, and musical partner to the arts. His sound has been described by audiences as “beautiful, jauntily melancholic, and unique” and by Westword as “a band that is rooted in the simplicity of folk music but performs as a chamber orchestra with complex arrangements.” Manley and his six-piece band (featuring members on violin, cello, upright bass, percussion, clarinet, and flute) draw inspiration from the eclectic folk music of the 1930s, creating haunting melodies from a past era. This is a rare local performance from one of Colorado’s most accomplished performers and bands - don’t miss them in the intimate setting of our library!
History Colorado's Tiny Library Concert series is generously supported by Airshow, Inc. and features performances by local Colorado musicians in the unusual and intimate space of the museum's Stephen H. Hart Library & Research Center. Beer, wine, and cocktails will be available for purchase.
