Jill Sobule - Three Concerts in Mark Twain's Library!

American singer-songwriter Jill Sobule returns to perform three intimate, acoustic concerts in Mark Twain’s Library on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, December 11, 12, and 13, at 7:30 p.m.

In mid-May Sobule performed two concerts in the cozy library where Twain and his family often entertained guests. The library will seat just 35 guests per show, and Jill Sobule will greet concert goers after the show.

Sobule has just released Nostalgia Kills, her 12th album and first in almost a decade.

In a Billboard interview, she said, “There were things that happened in my life — the death of a parent, a breakup, a move. I was my own procrastinatrix, is what I call it. But I think those kind of jostle you back into the creative mode, and I started loving music again…”

Join us for these special, intimate performances. No amplifiers, no light shows, just Jill and her guitar and the magic of Mark Twain’s library.

Mark Twain is one of our nation's defining cultural figures.

The Mark Twain House & Museum has restored the author’s Hartford, Connecticut, home, where the author and his family lived from 1874 to 1891. Twain wrote his most important works during the years he lived there, including Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. In addition to providing tours of Twain’s restored home, a National Historic Landmark, the institution offers activities and educational programs that illuminate Twain’s literary legacy and provide information about his life and times.
