Ellingtown in February at the Downtown Library

If you have small children in your life you'll want to catch one of the Nashville Public Library's February performances of the puppet show, Ellingtown in celebration of Black History Month. Produced as a joint project of the Library and the Nashville Jazz Workshop, the show presents the music of Duke Ellington in a delightful format that will have kids (and adults too) snapping their fingers and tapping their feet! The shows will be on on Friday and Saturday mornings througout the month, at the Main Library downtown.

The show was produced with support from the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and the Tennessee Arts Commission, and features music of Ellington recorded by Jazz Workshop All-Stars Lori Mechem, Roger Spencer, Chris Brown, George Tidwell, and Denis Solee, along with the creative puppetry of the Library's award-winning Wishing Chair Productions.
