Whale Guitar Anniversary At PPL

(4.24) Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Whale Guitar Wednesday evening at the Providence Public Library, where it was first unveiled. Organizers have a variety of free, family-friendly events planned; Reza Clifton performs the emcee duties.

We’ll share stories of the guitar’s making (and PPL’s role in its inspiration), meaning, and journey – and meet some of the musicians who have played it in its first decade. Featured events will include sea shanties by Sharks Come Cruisin’ Duo, songs performed by Jen Long and Fimone on The Whale Guitar, spoken word by Christopher Johnson, and more.

The event is free but the library asks that you register:

The evening will culminate in a procession from the Auditorium to the Rhode Island Room, where The Whale Guitar will be added to a selection of the archival items from PPL’s Nicholson Whaling Collection that inspired its making, to create The Whale Guitar 10th Anniversary Exhibition.

The exhibition remains on view through May 30. Follow the Whale Guitar at IG.

Whale Guitar Anniversary Celebration, free, 5pm to 7pm, Wednesday, April 24, PPL, 150 Empire Street, (directions)
