Music on the Mezzanine: Songs of Love @ Cedar Mill Library
Feb 19 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Bring your Valentine to the library for a romantic
interlude of Music on the Mezzanine. Steve Hale, Portland’s singer/songwriter
with a soul edge, wants to sing you a love song. Actually, many love songs. Steve
delivers his brand of blue-eyed-soul-American-pop in the tradition of Bruno
Mars, Daryl Hall, Sam Cooke, and Bill Withers. His love for melody is woven
deeply into the choral fabric of his songs, making his music rich, sultry and
glowing. This free performance begins at 6:30 pm and will appeal
primarily to adults although all ages are welcome. Learn more about Steve and
his music at https://www.stevehale.com/
