Ashland Public Library welcomes Mirlande Butler’s
Mimi & Friends Quartet
Haitian jazz singer to give a rare evening performance
Saturday, December 1, 2007 7:00 PM


ASHLAND, MASSACHUSETTS, November 9, 2007… Haitian jazz singer, Mirlande Butler and her quartet, Mimi & Friends, will be performing a rare evening concert on December 1, 2007 at The Ashland Public Library as part of the “Library Concert Series” sponsored by The Friends of the Ashland Library non-profit organization. A native of Haiti, Mirlande has developed a following in France, Brazil and US for her unique and delicate style of singing—a mix of pop, jazz, Bossa Nova and French and Haitian Creole.  Performing since childhood, Mirlande has sung to large and small audiences alike, in Chicago, New York, Brazil and France, and locally at the John Hancock Hall and Strand Theater.


Writer and producer, John Elder says, “Mimi sings beautifully and with emotional power in four languages.  Her style is the human heart .”


This event is free and open to the public. CDs will be available for purchase during a tea reception following the concert. The performance marks the third season of concerts sponsored by the Friends of the Ashland Library. A schedule of upcoming performers can be found at www.FriendsoftheAshlandLibrary.com. The Friends of the Ashland Library is a non-profit, volunteer organization committed to supporting programs at the Ashland Public Library.
