5/11/2022 - Willie and Jan Perform Carole King and James Taylor on June 1, 2022

On Wednesday, June 1, 2022 from 7-8:30pm, in the Brinker Fireplace Room, Willie and Jan will return to the Southbury Public Library to perform the music of Carole King and James Taylor.

Come to our Kickoff to our summer series and listen to a wonderful performance by Willie Niniger and Jan Scruggs. Willie and Jan return to the Southbury Public Library to perform favorites written and sung by Carole King and James Taylor, including, "I Feel the Earth Move '', "Sweet Baby James", and lots more.

Willie Nininger is an entertaining and versatile Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist, well known for his extensive repertoire, spontaneous sense of humor and flat-picking guitar technique. Willie plays in clubs and concerts across the US and Europe. He has written songs for the “Captain Kangaroo Show” and kids’ TV “After School Specials” and has appeared on TV variety shows. He performs the National Anthem for the NY Mets annually.

Jan Scruggs, a lover of harmony, has a keen knack for impersonation, replicating voices in songs from Skeeter Davis – “End of the World,” to a comedic rendering of the “All in the Family'' theme song as Jean Stapleton. Jan sings and plays guitar with Willie and his band up and down the east coast and in England. She and Willie perform theme shows such as Irish, country, holiday, tropical, TV & movie songs, famous duets, oldies, originals, and tributes to such performers as the Beatles, Carole King/James Taylor, Paul Simon, Simon & Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, Phil Ochs, and many more.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this program is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. The Rutledge Summer Series was made possible by the Charles H. and Ella Emery Rutledge Fund. Registration is required. Please visit the link below for more information and to register.
