The public is invited to enjoy Richard Tillinghast in concert on Friday, Aug. 11, at 7 p.m. in the White Salmon Valley Community Library's Sprint/Baker Gallery.
He will be playing finger-style steel string guitar, rhythmic slide guitar and banjo.
Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library.
Tillinghast was born a Louisiana Cajun and raised a red-dirt, South Carolina poetry professor's son. Moonshining, banjo picking, and James Dickey (author of Deliverance) were family friends.
Following college, he traveled for seven years through Europe, Africa, and the U.S., recording his first CD, "Men and Their Machines," in 1996.
Tillinghast is an acoustic musician who blends the sounds of Americana roots with a contemporary message of hope and cultural responsibility.
The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
