LONG?BEACH, Wash. — The World Kite Museum is happy to announce the auspicious return of one of its favorite friends of the museum: Bob Milne.

For almost a decade Bob has made an annual appearance at the World Kite Museum for an intimate evening of fun, frolic and song. After a two-year absence, the musuem is pleased to revive this amazing tradition 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 31.

Seats for this event are limited so call 360-642-4020 today to reserve yours. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 the day of the event.

Refreshments will be available before, during and after the concert from area restaurants for an additional suggested donation. Milne’s CDs and other materials will be available for sale, and Milne himself will also be available before and after the event to sign autographs. Tickets are available online at wkmbobmilne.eventbrite.com or by phone. Tickets are nonrefundable unless in case of concert cancellation.

A living legend in blues and ragtime piano, Milne began his career playing French horn for the Baltimore Symphony. He has the distinction of being one of the two ragtime/boogie woogie pianists who have been interviewed and recorded for the Library of Congress. Milne has played all over the country for presidents and heads of state. His style of performance is distinctive and fluid; he creates the set list on the fly, combining standards and improv, running through blues, ragtime, boogie-woogie and jazz interspersed with tales of his travels around the country and the rich history of his favorite musical genres. Milne usually plays concert halls filled with hundreds of avid fans. Get your tickets today to experience America’s “journeyman piano player.”
