To whom it may concern:
It is my pleasure to recommend a first-rate program for your consideration. On Sunday August 26th, the Hopkinton Town Library hosted a program with award-winning bluesman Tj Wheeler with a program of WWI Music. It was the kick off event for our Hopkinton READS series of events, this year commemorating US involvement in WWI.
Tj presented a spirited and informative program of music and commentary. In addition to his audience-pleasing music, often inspiring clapping and laughter, Tj put together a substantive slide show and narrative describing the roots of Jazz, the role of the Harlem Hellfighters and details regarding US’s role in the war, with a particular focus on Woodrow Wilson.
The program received rave reviews and I encourage any library or community organization looking for programming related to the WWI centenary to contact Tj Wheeler (firstname.lastname@example.org; 978 973 1709)
to schedule this program rich in history and excellent music.
