We normally don’t have winter shows here at the library. For a few reasons. Here are two:
1) The weather. Winters in Big Sur can be Biblical. Co-workers get stranded, as the dirt roads they live on become muddy rivers. People subsist on beans and stale coffee. The CHP hands out sandbags. Arks float down Highway 1, etc. And…
2) People don’t want to schlep down to the Library. Because we’re “too far” (rolls eyes)
Well, both those things go out the window tonight (besides, it’s beautiful out – like, 70 degrees!) for the Bee Eaters. How could we say no?
The Bee Eaters trace their roots back to musical traditions as diverse as bluegrass, Celtic, jazz and old-time. While today’s new breed often produces an amalgamation of sounds and styles based on a distant view, the Bee Eaters were raised embedded in these traditions… raised to mold, meld, shape them and carry them forward, leaving their own indelible marks in the process.
More info on the show on the Henry Miller Library site! See you there!
