May 2019 marks the 118th anniversary of our beautiful building’s opening to the public. The Library & Music Hall was a gift to the borough from Andrew Carnegie himself. To mark the occasion, we’re bringing back the blues with Jimmy Adler Band.

With 4 CDs to his credit, Pittsburgh-based blues guitarist and singer, Jimmy Adler has recorded many original songs that are steeped in the traditions of Chicago Blues, West-Coast Jazzy Jump, and other Americana traditions. His style is described as straight-ahead blues guitar – a blend of clean fat tones and raunchy slide guitar.   “Adler’s songs are superbly built … with frightening slide guitar effectiveness” (Blues & Co. Magazine, France).

His latest CD, Grease Alley is a gritty, soulful recording featuring songs in a variety of styles ranging from swampy to swing. Blues Revue Magazine describes his style as “Guaranteed excitement for fans of straight-ahead blues guitar.”  He brings forth a variety of flavors that will satisfy the blues lover and whet the appetite of those new to the genre.

Doors open at 6:30 pm || Show begins at 7:30 pm
