On Friday, February 26 at 7:00 pm singer/songwriter Kerry Patrick Clark will perform as part of the Carnegie Concert Series at the Bryan Main Library.
According to his bio, “Kerry Patrick Clark is a musical Norman Rockwell. His palette is a simple 12-note scale, a 6-string guitar and one voice that seeks to sing hope into the human experience. His songs are the compass that points the heart home. He dares the dreamer in each of us to remember who we are. He challenges the believer in each of us to choose who we want to be.
Kerry released his first project, Life and Times, a record! – In 1985. Of the 1,000 copies that were pressed and sold that year, one made its way to the offices of The New Christy Minstrels. Clark toured with the Christy’s in 1985, celebrating the group’s 25th anniversary! He later recorded the projects; A Simple Man, 1994; Build A Bridge, 1996; Choose Love, 2000; 911…Songs To Heal A Nation, 2001. “Ground Zero,” a track from the 911 CD, was used by CNN in the 6th month anniversary special to honor those who served and those lost in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
In 2014 Clark released, In A Perfect World which met huge success. The title track held the top slot for ten weeks running (17 total weeks 2014, 2015) on the Music Roots Report folk chart as well as being the No. 1 CD in Ohio for June, July and August. “That’s The Thing About Love” from the same CD held the No.2 folk slot for several weeks; plus “A Simply Legacy” and “Another River Runs” ranked in the Top 20 on the Americana chart for Roots Music Report.”

The Carnegie Concert Series was created by Williams County Public Library as a way to showcase newer talent, both local and nationwide. The series has already featured talented musicians such as Dakota Dave Hall, Whitney Mann, Jeremy Ayers, and Seth Abram. These events have limited seating so the library encourages attendees to arrive early. Doors will open half an hour before each show at 6:30 p.m. and will lock at 7:00 pm out of courtesy to the performer. All of the concerts are free to the public and are funded through donations.
Kerry’s concert will take place in the Carnegie area of the Main Library, and his CD’s will be available to purchase. Additional acts in the Carnegie Concert Series will be added as they become available. Interested performers should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the library 419-636-6734 Ext. 239. The Bryan Main Library is located at 107 E. High Street.
