“Each year the Friends of the Beachwood Library look for a special program for Mother’s Day and this year we outdid ourselves by inviting the very talented Eileen Burns and her band. They perform a selection of favorite songs from the movies and preface each with some fun facts regarding the music. Eileen’s wonderful voice is accompanied by her musically accomplished fellow performers. Her program is a fantastic way to enjoy an afternoon.”
