Enjoy an evening of music at Café Libri on July 19, from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at the LaPine Public Library. This program is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.
Café Libri, the monthly gathering hosted around the library district, was created to provide a place to meet and mingle and enjoy food and friends in a casual environment. Past gatherings have featured a barbershop quartet, singer songwriters and poetry readings.
At the July event, library patrons will be treated to an hour of original music performed by Travis Ehernstrom. Ehernstrom, a student in the American Project at Sisters High School, began playing the guitar and writing songs at 13. The Americana Project is the collaboration between the Sisters School District and the Sisters Folk Festival. While participating in the project students are schooled in the roots of the American music tradition while learning the crafts of songwriting and performing. Ehrenstrom has shared stages with many local musicians, including Leslie Satcher, Greg Barnhill, Brad Tisdel, Brent Allan, Benji Nagel, Raman Ellis and Monica Offield. He plans to record his first album with his band in July 2007. This fall, Ehrenstrom will major in history at Portland State University while continuing to pursue his musical career.
