- Dickson Mounds, Lewistown
For more than 20 years, people have gathered at Dickson Mounds on the third Saturday of every month for an evening of musical entertainment. Hosted by Chris Vallillo, an accomplished musician and performer in his own right, the series features Roots/Folk music and other genres offered by a talented variety of performers.
The Rocky Ford Rounders will perform June 20th.
The "Rocky Ford Rounders" band is comprised of four veteran Central Illinois musicians. Leading off on vocals and guitar is Marc Boon, well-known for his years with rhythm and blues band, Hip Pocket. Claudia Kaufman adds vocal harmonies and sweet fiddle backup, while Gary Kaufman provides driving rhythm on clawhammer-style banjo. Bass player, Steve Knecht, gained his expertise from years of playing Rockabilly and Swing music in the Bloomington-Normal area. The combined musical talents of these four band members are sure to get your feet tapping and your hands clapping.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Adults $10, kids $5. Visit https://www.chrisvallillo.com/hickory-ridge for information about the artists.
