Live and Local

1st Annual Champaign/Urbana Singer-Songwriter Festival


The Champaign/Urbana Singer-Songwriter Collective showcases its affiliated artists every week in Champaign, and at occasional specially themed programs throughout the year. Last May, they offered a tribute to Bob Dylan, which the Collective will re-present as part of a three-day singer-songwriter festival this weekend in Urbana. I’ll welcome five of those musicians—out of a field of thirty-some—to perform live on the Thursday edition of “Live and Local.”
