Celebrating Seniors @ Bernardsville Library

On Friday, June 8 at 10:00 am, Bernardsville Public Library will hold its tenth annual Seniors’ Day with a free continental breakfast, a chance to socialize, and a program tailored specially for the senior generation. “Music of Vaudeville'' will be presented by “Cracked Walnuts,” a husband and wife team who call themselves a “nutty washboard and banjo duo specializing in old time music.” From the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, Jeff and Jan Ausfahl, entertain with music from the Civil War era, campfire and folk songs, barbershop quartet style music, patriotic favorites, traditional jigs and reels, hits from the Roaring Twenties, Western Swing, and even old movie and television music.

“Music of Vaudeville” features music, stories and humor of the stars from 1890's Vaudeville through Prohibition, including such artists as Al Jolson, Fanny Brice and Eddie Cantor. Even though many of these songs were popular at the time of the Titanic's famous voyage, familiar songs like “Carolina in the Morning” or “Shine on Harvest Moon” are still hard to resist. Singing along will be encouraged.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is required. To register, call the library at 908-766-0118 or sign up online at www.bernardsvillelibrary.org and follow the link from Adult Programs.
