ENFIELD- Get ready for a high-energy, fun-filled evening as the Enfield Public Library presents, the Roots of Rock-n-Roll, featuring Brian Gillie on Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. Long-time international performer, dance educator, swing dance choreographer, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Brian Gillie has been offering dance, song and creativity concerts, assembly programs and workshops through Young Audiences of Connecticut since 1983. He is a Young Audience’s Performance Artist of the Year. Unlike any history lesson you will ever see, it is Brian’s impersonations, costumes, props, original sound bites, stand-up piano-playing, radio commercials and attitude that reveal the story of rock’s origins through gospel, rhythm & blues and country and western. Meet the personalities and songs that shaped the music of doo-wop, Motown, girl groups, surfin’, soul, novelty tunes and much more: Little Richard to Beach Boys, Chuck Berry to Beatles, Elvis to Supremes. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame delivered to your space. sh BOOM! All programs at the Enfield Public Library are free and all are welcome.
