Guitar and fiddle recitals held at public library
Frank Hobbs and his students sang and played to a vast audience this past Thursday at the Butler County Public Library. When Hobbs realized that ten of his students would be performing for the second Christmas recital, he moved the event to the library. The ages of musicians range from young to, let's say “mature,” that can play the guitar and have excellent singing voices.
He will be starting the next round of free lessons at the end of January.
In a related story, Wendell Snodgrass proudly presented six of his students on a cold and rainy Friday night for the first fiddle recital at the Butler County Arts Guild.
The Art Guild is quickly outgrowing its building on 115 West Ohio Street, which was only opened eighteen months ago.
Between Frank and Wendell, over 100 family and friends came out to listen to newly-learned music and singing.
Janeen Taylor and some of her elves decorated the arts guild with her beautiful Christmas Village that will be on display until December 31st.
After the fiddle recital local musicians performed. They call themselves the "Generations," and they cover four generations from 16 to “we won't say Wendell's age.”
Wendell's free fiddle lessons are on Tuesdays at 6 p.m.
The arts guild is also looking for someone to teach free piano lessons if anyone is interested.
Check out the Butler County Arts Guild on Facebook, their website or Beech Tree News for future events.
Normal Hours are Friday 3 to 7 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
They are located across from the Butler County Public Library.
