The Garland County Library will host Elizabeth Vidos, better known as "Lady Chops," this Friday for an energetic, one-woman percussionist show.

"'Lady Chops' is a touring percussionist who performs (in) libraries and museums around the state and around the southern United States," said Erin Baber, the library's marketing manager.

Vidos formerly performed in the hit show "STOMP" and in the New Orleans Jazz Festival, a news release said. During Vidos' 2023 summer tour, she performed at the library.

"Chanan Emmons, our Youth Programs coordinator, attended that program and said that it was just an amazing performance just to see how she intertwined actual drumming and stories about drumming along with how she became a traveling musician," Baber said.

This Friday, she'll be performing her holiday hit, "Here Come the Bells, So Many Bells!"

"I believe there's going to be some xylophones and maybe some different types of hand instruments and percussion instruments," she said.

"I don't think that she's going to be at any of our neighboring county libraries this holiday," Baber said. "I can't know for sure, but as of right now, I've not seen it. So it might be a special event here at Garland County Library."

The show will be performed in the auditorium at the library, 1427 Malvern Ave. The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will be an all-ages, interactive performance.

The event is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
