Several things might come to mind when hearing the term "one-man band." It could be a raucous circus act, a performer who uses looping technology to build complex, but cohesive songs on stage, or a musician who sings all the vocal parts and plays all the instruments on a recording. In recent decades, an added wrinkle has occurred as some of these multi-talented musicians have even donned band names to obscure their solo identities!
I can't believe the Winter Reading Program is already over! Of course, the good news that comes with the end of the program is that it's also the end of February. Spring is just within our reach and we'll be celebrating warm temperatures in no time (hopefully). Thanks to everyone who particpated in this year's program! I enjoyed getting each of the reviews and sharing them with the DMPL community. What a great way to beat the cold and snow, and find new book recommendations. I'll be posting all of the reviews we received so that everyone can enjoy all the great suggestions.
