BRUNSWICK – Four performers will present their work and discuss their artistic process at Performing Arts Night at the Library Monday, March 10, at Curtis Memorial Library, 23 Pleasant St.

The program, presented by the Brunswick Area Arts & Cultural Alliance, will run from 7 to 9 p.m.

The musicians are Gia Comolli, Neil Lamb, Josephine Cameron and David Bullard. An open mike will follow.

People can contact the arts alliance to find out how to get on the mike, by e-mail to [email protected] or by calling 798-6964.

Comolli is a composer of classical music. A pianist by training, she is writing a violin concerto for the 2004 Bowdoin International Music Festival.

At Arts Night, “I’ll talk about the concerto and also about other works written by non-violinists that are successful musically and are idiomatic, like Ravel’s ‘Tzigane’ and the Violin Concerto by Brahms,” she said.

A Brunswick native, Lamb is a jazz guitarist who plays seven-string guitar in the style of George Van Eps. Lamb says his music “must appeal to a wide audience, but there is still plenty of room for improvisation.”

He started playing guitar after seeing the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. In 1973, he earned a B.A. in music at the University of York, in Heslington, England, and studied briefly in London.

Lamb has a private recording studio in Brunswick. He has released several CDs of original compositions.

Cameron, who lives in the Brunswick area, plays original and well-known songs somewhat between pop and folk idioms.

She has been praised for her clear, expressive vocal style. She grew up in northern Wisconsin where she was influenced by everything from Hank Williams to Peggy Lee to the Pixies and Edie Brickell. Her newest CD is “Every Night When the Sun Goes In.”

From growing up in the Southwestern Mountains to his current home in New England, Bullard continues to “pick” from his gold mine of experiences for his songs. He has produced several CDs, including “Lost at Sea.”

“Coast To Coast,” his television series is taped at Harpswell’s Community Television studios. He is a co-founder of the Atlantic Songwriters Association in Brunswick.
