Picture of the band Unlikely Strummers

This is definitely NOT your great-grandfather's ukulele music! You never know what this group will play next.  From 1920's standards to early rock-n-roll, from country to contemporary top 40 hits, the Unlikely Strummers provide family friendly music that will make you want to sing or dance along.  You definitely will leave the show with a smile on your face. 

Bring a chair or blanket, bug spray, and a picnic snack to enjoy.  A food donation to Damien's Food Pantry is your "ticket" to the show.  Concert is held inside if weather does not cooperate.

From gangster Charles "King" Solomon to the infamous Brink's robbers to Whitey Bulger, New Englanders have been intrigued by those who operate on the far side of the law.  Boston - based author Stephanie Schorow has explored these dark, but fascinating, characters who have shaped local history for better or for worse.  In this illustrated lecture, she recounts tales of these, and other, nefarious men.  Who says crime doesn't pay?  

Program is free and no registration required.  Sponsored by Friends of the Wareham Free Library and the Wareham Cultural Council.
