University of Illinois Summer Band Launches 104th Season; Chatham County Line Comes to Allerton


I'll be hosting “Live and Local” on FM 90.9 for just a few more days. I’ve had the great pleasure to help you discover some of the talented musicians, actors and dancers who live and work in our communities. The University of Illinois band program is certainly one of the artistic jewels of the entire state. They’ll offer their 104th season of summer band concerts, starting Thursday, and I’ll talk with director Linda Moorhouse on the Wednesday edition of “Live and Local.” Also, we'll hear from Dave Wilson, lead singer and guitarist for North Carolina's roots/bluegrass band Chatham County Line, who play at Allerton Park in Monticello on June 27.
