SOUTHBRIDGE — The Jacob Edwards Library, 236 Main Street, is pleased to present “Banjo Blue,” the duet of Paula Bradley and Maggie Shar, who will present their entertaining, engaging and educational program “Women in American Traditional Music.”

The program will be held on Thursday, August 29 at 6:30 p.m. in the Jacob Edwards Library.

This program will highlight both well-known and unsung heroines of traditional American roots music, performed on banjo, guitar, and ukulele, with some flatfoot dancing to boot. Both musicians are deeply vested in the American traditional music scene and are sure to include some crowd-pleasers and singalongs, as well as stories of the lives of these female musical pioneers.

Light refreshments will be served. All welcome!
