Parallel Paths: The Poetry of Carl Sandburg, the Music of Chris Vallillo

Event Type: Adult Program
Date: 4/26/2014
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
Description:
 Hear Illinois award-winning folksinger and songwriter Chris Vallillo pair Sandburg's poetry with his own original songs and instrumentals as well as several of the songs Sandburg himself collected as a folklorist. This program was created for the 2012 Carl Sandburg Days Festival. It is funded in part by the Illinois Humanities Council.


Vallillo's work has long been compared to that of Sandburg. He has been described as "Illinois’ pre-eminent prairie-poet singer-songwriter" and is well known for incorporating original and traditional material to make the people and places of "unmetropolitan" America come to life. CDs will be for sale and signing.
