LISLE – Two musical performances in late July at the Lisle Public Library will incorporate an appreciation of history into song.  

Janie Meneely & Calico Jack will perform at 2 p.m. July 21 at the Lisle Public Library, 777 Front St. The musical duo will perform songs that celebrate pirates, nautical history and traditions of the Chesapeake Bay.

Lee Murdock will perform "1812: America’s Second War for Independence" at 7 p.m. July 30 at the Lisle Public Library. The historian and folk-singer will sing songs from the period and contemporary ballads about the conflict. It will be a musical lecture discussing the U.S.' turning point and the alliance between the U.S. and Canada.
