Noble Public Library crowds can give their ears a taste of the acoustic duo Arabesque, as part of the library’s Children’s Summer Reading Program. Arabesque comes to the library at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 1, as part of the library’s “One World, Many Stories” series.
The Arabic and Irish acoustic sounds are made by the duo of Steve Vanlandingham and Miranda Arana. Their music is inspired from a variety of traditions from around the world.
They mix Celtic, Arabic, Judeo-Spanish, Turkish and other world folk traditions. Arana plays a variety of flutes and whistles while Vanlandingham’s instruments include guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, banjo, oud (a Middle Eastern lute) and a wooden slit drum.
Registration is not required to attend the program.
The touring programs in this year’s Summer Reading Program are made possible by the support of the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, the Oklahoma Arts Council, The Anne & Henry Zarrow Foundation, Sonic, Hitachi, the Institute of Museum and Science Services, the Pioneer Library System Foundation and the Pioneer Library System.
