The Poetry of Carl Sandburg, Music of Chris Vallillo

Sunday April 14, 2019

Popular folk musician Chris Vallillo, described as “Illinois’s pre-eminent prairie-poet singer-songwriter,” presents a combination of Carl Sandburg’s poetry paired with his own original music and several selections from Sandburg’s American folk song collection. Vallillo’s style is often compared to Sandburg, and he is known for evoking the people and places of rural America. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of Sandburg’s Pulitzer Prize honor and his settling in Elmhurst, where he resided until 1928. All ages welcome. This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
