NASELLE — The fourth and final event in the 2018 “Music on the Lawn” series at the Naselle Timberland Library will be Tuesday, July 31. Howly Slim is scheduled to perform that evening from 6 p.m. to 7:30 pm.
A prolific songwriter, Slim has reportedly written hundreds of songs over the last half of a century which, according to his biography, are gentle ballads on subjects like “trains, tramps, tree planters, big cities, small towns, work, waitresses, good love, bad love, love gone wrong, heartache and, injustice. His songwriting is thoughtful in both composition and direction. One of his songs named, ‘Along This Highway’ has lyrics about a happier world ‘where no kid ever went hungry’ and the question, ‘do you think you could own this land? We’re all just passing through, like footprints in the sand.’”
Music on the Lawn is free to the public. Attendees are urged to bring a lawn chair in order to sit back and enjoy an evening of fine entertainment with friends and neighbors.
