John Viele in Concert

Frank Viele constructs his sound beneath an acoustic funk ceiling with windows of alternative pop, folk and soul in concert on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. A musical carpenter in the independent rock genre, this singer/songwriters approach mixes a dry wit with a soulful touch. A storytelling angle finishes out the floors of this building. Frank's sound construction is cemented together by a solid blues foundation and his stylistically aware approach is evident in his singing and guitar playing. Working off the brick and mortar of influences ranging from Dave Matthews to Otis Redding and Ray Lamontagne to Johnny Lang, Frank delivers an authenticity showcasing a familiarity to the inspirations that came before him. Frank Viele is acoustic funk, electrified with a shot of pop, rock and soul. Add rhythm and blues for a chaser.

The performance is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served; sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Coffee provided by Starbucks Coffee, Nashua, NH.
