Polk County Public Library and the PCPL Friends of the Library are proud and excited to present “HeartSongs,” a year of performance artistry.

To begin the year’s journey, Jim Farrell, a well known playwright/poet/singer/songwriter will read his poetry and perform some of his music on May 2, 5:30-7:30 p.m. on the Reader’s Deck of the library.

Each month of the coming year, performers who are either born in Polk County or are now residents of Polk County will be “on stage” in the library to entertain attendees.

Up and coming acts include Bradley Ditto, Phil and Gaye Johnson, Jay Lichty, Bob Child, The Blue Ridge Rounders, Eddie and Carol Ramsey, Marilyn McRedie, The Battle Axe Band, an “Open Mike” night and HeartSongs Circle. All performances are free and open to the public.
