Dave Morehouse to perform at Portage Library's "Music on the Menu" June 29


HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library invites everyone to bring a lunch and enjoy "Music on the Menu," an outdoor series of events held on the dock outside the library.

Musician Dave Morehouse entertains with several instruments. Here he is pictured at the Ed Gray Gallery in Calumet. He will be featured at "Music on the Menu" at noon this Friday, June 29, outside the Portage Lake District Library. (Keweenaw Now file photo)

Dave Morehouse will carry his eclectic vision of music out to the audience from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday, June 29. He will be opening with a few fiddle and mandolin tunes and will continue by performing some solo guitar and vocal work featuring both original tunes and classic covers. Sometime during the performance he will briefly wield an accordion or concertina; but, rest assured, he has filled out and submitted the required permits and alerts with proper authorities. The music will be good, but more than anything, he promises to have fun.

Morehouse has been playing both acoustically and electrically for more than forty years. Beginning as a lad on the acoustic guitar, he expanded his playing to electric guitar and mandolin. Over the years he fell in love with every instrument he ever picked up and was driven to learn, play, and own each of them. Today he owns and plays a variety of stringed, bowed, and reeded instruments; and music remains his passion and mainstay.

Everyone is invited to eat, relax, and enjoy the lunch hour while listening to some great music. In the event of bad weather, the program will be held in the community room.

This event is part of the library’s Summer Reading Program and is free and open to all. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit www.pldl.org.
