The Cutaways are just a bunch of old guys who love to sit around and make music. Whether it be classic rock or country, or even some of that “new music” all the kids are into these days…they play it all. Come on out and listen for yourself. You’ll be tappin’ your toes, dancin’ in the aisles, and singin’ along to your favorite songs!
Get your tech questions answered! This is the last session for our Hands-On Tech Lab series until further notice. Questions are handled on a first come, first served basis. Please bring your own device (smartphone, tablet, eReader, laptop…) or if you have a computer question, we can use one of the library computers.

They will go from laughing hysterically right into a seriously depressing song that is just beautiful.
