Add to Calendar 2017-10-06 18:00:00 2017-10-06 20:00:00 America/Chicago Great Lakes Ghosts Des Plaines Public Library

Join us at The Terrace on the 4th floor for Great Lakes Ghosts - an informal evening of spooky tales and songs about ghost ships and haunted lighthouses of the Great Lakes region perfomed by singer-songwriter and historian Lee Murdock. 

Lee Murdock has uncovered a boundless body of music and stories in the Great Lakes. Noted as a fluent instrumentalist, Murdock's musical influences span fifteen generations, combining ragtime, Irish, blues and folk styles with his flair for storytelling in songs. Making folk music for the modern era, Lee Murdock’s work is a documentary and also an anthem to the people who live, work, learn and play along the freshwater highways of North America.

About the library

The 1501 Ellinwood Street library building is the realization of a longheld dream of the library board, staff and community partners.

A grand central staircase and large windows provide a wealth of natural light and illuminate the building at night.
