Holiday Party Planned for December 16th

We are pleased that Split the Bill, a musical duo that includes Elisa Geliebter, manager of the children's book program at Lisa Libraries, has agreed to provide the entertainment at our Holiday Party, Tuesday, Dec. 16, from 4 pm at the Kingston Library.

Please bring an unwrapped gift (valued around $5), suitable for a woman in the domestic violence shelter. They especially need bath and personal care items, games, puzzles, and books for all ages, and winter hats, scarves, and gloves.

Here's a bit from Split the Bill’s website:

With lots of close harmonies, interwoven acoustic guitars, piano and mandolin, this singer-songwriter duo consists of Myra Dirnfeld and Elisa Geliebter.

Their songs and arrangements have been called "compelling. . . and haunting". The Kingston Freeman wrote that Split the Bill makes music in "a comfortable living room way that's been lost in recent years. Split the Bill does a fine job of bringing real music back, as it should be."

Split the Bill performs a blend of intriguing and rhythmic originals and covers including The Beatles, The Indigo Girls, Radiohead, Jackson Browne, The Eagles and Emmylou Harris.

The duo is based in the Hudson River Valley between the river and the mountains; the sound of the beautiful land flows through their music.
