Ms. Nims will be performing Tuesday, April 14th at 6:00 PM in the acoustically blessed main room of the Julian Library. Her event is part of the celebration of National Library Month. The program also kicks off a new series presented by the Friends of the Julian Library's Arts and Letters Program. Titled Tuesday Music @ the Library, the ongoing program will showcase superbly talented solo musicians and musical groups. "The flavor we are going for is great music in a coffeehouse atmosphere" said Colleen Baker, the Julian Branch Librarian. "Sit at a table, sip your coffee or tea, and enjoy a variety of musical genres. And since concerts will be the first Tuesday of every month, except the Adrienne Nims concert, which falls during National Library Week, it will be easy to set that date aside." Ms. Nims will present a concert of world flute music. She has a large collection of indigenous instruments she will showcase. She also will tell the stories of these flutes and the cultures they represent. Adrienne Nims started playing piano at the age of five, but after hearing her grandfather play his saxophone, embraced the flute and the saxophone.

Since then, she has also been recorded on "Spirit Wind", "Survivor", "Cosmic Sea", "Heart Away", Ahria", Taste Of Julian Attracts Overwhelming Crowd Estimated attendance for the first annual Taste of Julian was 50 participants but thanks to a successful media campaign, the i event attracted 125 people to the self-guided culinary tour of Julian and Wynola.

"We want to deeply thank all the restaurants and wineries who participated in this event," says Tracy Turner, president of the Julian Merchants Association which sponsored the event. "We had no way of gauging the anticipated attendance but everyone rallied to the occasion and helped make Taste of Julian a wonderful success." Participating restaurants included Candied Apple Pastry, Country Cellars, Jeremy's On The Hill, Julian Grille, Julian Pie Company, Julian Tea & Cottage Arts, King Leo's Confections, Margaritas, Menghini Winery, Mountain Made, Romano's, Rongbranch and Wynola Pizza.

"We received tremendous feedback from participants during the event," according to Turner. "It was a great way for people to discover each restaurant or winery and develop a point of reference for future visits to Julian." One visitor had a complaint that the restaurants "...served too much, we've only been to a couple and already we are full." photos by Albie Stark "The overall success was a credit to the various restaurants going above and beyond our original projections," said Gina Petrone, they could have easily said that's it we are out of food and called it a day, but got creative and made the visitors feel very welcome." "Every first time event has kinks that need to be resolved and we have already started to fix the glitches that have been identified. Next year we will definitely work on pre- sale of tickets for one." Proceeds from the event will be used for the production and marketing of future town events, including Gold Rush Days, Apple Days, and Country Christmas.
