Success in the Music Business Subject of Library Events

How do you get to a music hall of fame?  Check out this library event, and then practice, practice, practice.    

Gabriel Farago has done it all in the music business over the last 30 years.  He’s an author, musician, Nashville talent launcher.  He’s placed several records on the Billboard Charts.  Now he can add instructor to his list of credits as he presents ”Secrets to Success in Country and Western Music,” a seminar based on his book of the same name.  His talks will be presented in three library events in September.

During the 1980’s, Farago toured and performed in concert with major country stars, such as Gary Morris, Earl Thomas Conley, Lee Greenwood and Tammy Wynette. In 1989 and 1990 he represented the United States in two major European international country music festivals, including a performance in Budapest, Hungary with EmmyLou Harris. A concert-goers favorite, Farago's trademark high-energy shows have influenced the rock-type country acts of today.

“Although most of Gabriel’s experience has come in the field of country music,” said Downtown librarian Darlene Browers, “most of what he has to say applies to all areas of music and not just to country singers.”

            “Secrets to Success in Country and Western Music” will be presented three times.
