The Harrisons will kick off the series on Aug. 19. A powerhouse husband-and-wife duo, The Harrisons perform nearly every genre of music on a wide variety of instruments — sometimes even more than one at a time!

John Sheehan will take the stage on Aug. 26. A singer-songwriter, his songs “show simple humor, yet say something profound about humanity, according to a reviewer. Sheehan is a long-time local favorite who will be showcasing his fine finger-style playing for this performance.

The Sussex-Wantage Library is located just south of the Borough of Sussex, at 69 Route 639, by the airport. If weather forces the program indoors, seating will be in the library’s Community Room. Children are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Registration is not required.
