South Sioux City Public Library Promotes Music in the Schools Month

The South Sioux City Public Library, 2121 Dakota Avenue, South Sioux City Nebraska has art from the students of Lewis and Clark Elementary School throughout the month of March, as part of the Music in the Schools Month.

Student art will be on display throughout the library. Refreshments will be provided. Everyone is welcome

At 7:00 p.m. on March 31st we will host Ben Carroll for a concert.

Ben Carroll's soulful, powerful voice lives somewhere at the crossroads of Stevie Wonder and James Taylor--he's captivating, distinctive, mesmerizing. With the help of his accomplished acoustic guitar playing, Carroll moves his audiences with his plaintive songwriting, written from the heart and with a thoughtful, sometimes keen eye, while exploring the endless themes of love, of a search for a place and meaning in the world. A soul and folk artist at once, Carroll has steadily toured North America and Europe as a solo act since 2004. He released his debut solo album Lover Undercover in 2005 and his follow-up Real Thing in 2007 (on UK label Blue Cloud Records), which was #1 for five weeks on AAA FM Radio in Ohio and was played on over fifty radio stations in the US and Europe.

The concert is free to the public a freewill donation of $10 is appreciated. CDs will be sold by the artist at the end of the show
