Celebrate Riverfest at Deschutes Public Library on Sunday, May 4th at 2:00 p.m. when local guitarist/signer-songwriter Colleen Cole presents Dip Me in the Water: Songs of the Fluid Element, an acoustic set of music and songs inspired by the river and the water that is the heart of Central Oregon.
Cole, a self-taught guitarist/singer-songwriter has been singing and dancing since she can remember. Although she enjoys all styles of music, her own songs are inspired by rock, folk and pop of the 50s through the 90s. "Many non-mainstream groups influence my work today.” Cole says she likes taking a thought, opinion or emotion and taking it as far as she can. “Anyone who knows me can vouch for my use of sarcasm and dashes of cynicism." Cole likes to leave people with a smile and humming tunes that will be stuck in their head for weeks.
This program is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 617-7072.
