Paul Imholte at Rum River Library

Date: Nov 3rd, 2012

Live at the Library will feature musician Paul Imholte at Rum River Library, Saturday, November 3rd at 2:00 pm.  This program is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited. 

Paul received his designation as “The Musical Stringman” through his mastering of string instruments and incorporating nearly a dozen string instruments into his performances and recordings.

“As a former piano teacher, I know it’s hard enough to master one instrument, let alone twelve!” said Anoka County Commissioner Carol LeDoux.  “This program is certain to be educational and amazing.”

Paul’s featured instrument is the hammered dulcimer, an ancient string instrument from the Middle East. In addition, Paul performs with the fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, viola, cello, harmonica, jaw harp, auto harp, and spoons.  Audience members can try their hand at playing a variety of instruments. 

“String instruments can produce an amazing variety of music,” said Library Board President Bob Thistle.  “Learn more about these instruments while enjoying the show.”  

Paul Imholte is presented by GL Berg and Anoka County Library in partnership with MELSA (Metropolitan Library Service Agency).  This program funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Rum River Library is located at 4201 6th Avenue in Anoka.  For more information call 763-576-4695.
