Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

The library is a place of mental diversion, learning, and comfort for anyone who has an intellect.  I know of no librarian who when asked for food for the mind will offer a stone.  What more could anyone ask?

piano.

As seen on FOX, NBC and ABC and heard on NPR, diverse artist Deborrah Wyndham, a jazz/contemporary concert pianist/composer and also a beautiful folk singer-songwriter/guitarist, has fascinated listeners in over 2,700 performances during the last ten years and more.  Deborrah actually began her performing career as a folk singer/guitarist doing Celtic, blues, folk, pop and alternative-folk music. She writes moving songs that convey honesty, wit and insight, sung with an almost ethereal, sweet-sounding voice that always leaves the room silent wherever she performs.  With radio and television appearances and enthusiastic listeners from all over the world, Deborrah offers something for every musical taste. She received an Honorable Mention from Billboard Magazine in 2004 for one of her songs written for guitar.  As an extremely versatile artist, Deborrah performs for all ages as a jazz/contemporary pianist on the concert stage, and also as a folk singer-songwriter/guitarist in clubs and coffee houses.
