WHAT IS IT? Garage star Katy B
WHERE AND WHEN IS IT?
Rugby Library on June 6.
WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT IT?
The Get it Loud in Libraries series of concerts has announced the latest performer to appear at Rugby Library with UK garage star Katy B next in line to perform. On June 6 the usually quiet library will be transformed into a live music venue for one of the UK’s biggest dance music stars.
The singer, whose debut album Katy on a Mission was released last year, is a major coup for the Get it Loud in Libraries project.
As well as enjoying her own chart success, she has supported Tinie Tempah and has collaborated with producer Mark Ronson to create a song for the Olympics’ adverts
Get It Loud In Libraries was originally created in 2005 in Lancashire to engage young people with libraries through great live music.
Warwickshire Libraries have enthusiastically supported the venture as part of the service’s drive to engage with a new audience and bring more visiters to its libraries. Katy B follows other bands and performers to perform at Rugby
Library including Plan B, British Sea Power, The Crookes and Spark.
Paul MacDermott, of Warwickshire Libraries, says: “In Warwickshire, we are looking to develop an audience of young people who are traditionally harder to engage and this is a wonderful opportunity to do so.
“With the variety of activities on offer, libraries are becoming cultural hubs for all sections of the community and all age ranges.”
