Musician featured at Live at the Library

Live at the Library will feature musician Paul Imholte at the Rum River Library, Saturday, Nov. 3, 2 p.m.

This program is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited.

Imholte 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 12,” said Anoka County Commissioner Carol LeDoux. “This program is certain to be educational and amazing.”

Imholte’s featured instrument is the hammered dulcimer, an ancient string instrument from the Middle East. In addition, he 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 Anoka County Library Board President Bob Thistle. “Learn more about these instruments while enjoying the show.”

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.

The Rum River Library is located at 4201 Sixth Ave. in Anoka.
