Searsmont — Searsmont Town Library presents award-winning singer-songwriter Connor Garvey in concert on Thursday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. The Live at the Library concert series is free of charge.

With the amiable presence of an entertainer, the lyrical depth of a poet, and the enchantment of a storyteller, Garvey leaves audiences uplifted and inspired through a positive message delivered in a way the Portland Press Herald says "proves you can be optimistic and self-aware without being boring. His unique sandy tenor and masterful blend of rhythm and melody draw comparisons to Paul Simon and contemporaries Josh Ritter and Jason Mraz. He wins song competitions. He fills rooms. But most of all, he moves people."

First time listeners often are drawn to Garvey's engaging performance style, accomplished musicianship, and memorable melodies. But his lyrics project a depth and sincerity that allow the observant listener to find meaning beyond the catchy hook. Meanwhile, the intricate production of his albums adds emotional depth and keeps the songs fresh play after play.

This combination of songwriting and performance strength has earned Garvey numerous awards including being named winner of the Kerrville New Folk, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, SolarFest, Wildflower Art and Music Festival and Maine Songwriters Association songwriting competitions, voted as Most Wanted artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, nominated for Best Male Performer in the New England Music Awards, and a top new singer songwriter by Sirius XM's The Coffeehouse.
