To the Editor:
The West Tisbury Library has much to celebrate. News of the state grant was followed by a sold out evening with David McCullough, while many varied, smaller events continue to take place informing and entertaining the Island community.
I particularly want to thank those who have participated in our Tuesdays at Twilight musical series at the Grange Hall in West Tisbury. Working with the Preservation Trust has been a pleasure. Willy Mason and The Flying Elbows launched the series with an enthusiastic program on July 26. Mister G provided a rousing family experience on August 9, and Tisberry Yogurt donated frozen yogurt and toppings afterwards.
There are two more evenings ahead. On August 23, Elizabeth Straton, Jemima James, Dan Waters, and Al Schackman will provide an evening of original acoustic entertainment. On August 30, the Daytrippers will entertain with their version of music from the Beatles, while Good Night Louise offers Vineyard-based country blues and Americana.
In these busy and distracting times, it continues to amaze me how many people lend their talents and resources so willingly. All of these artists agreed to perform for free in order to support our library. We look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.
For now, much gratitude goes out to those I’ve mentioned for helping keep live music happening in our town while celebrating the much-loved West Tisbury Library.
