Allison Adams Tucker at the Carmel Valley Library on November 12
November's free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Library's community room. It will feature vocalist Allison Adams Tucker and pianist Danny Green performing songs of the Great American Songbook, a term used to denote the canon of the most important and most influential American popular songs of the 20th century - principally from Broadway theatre, musical theatre, and Hollywood musical film. It was written from the 1920s through the 1950s and includes hundreds of songs of enduring popularity. The program will last 45 minutes.
