Guitarist Tim Donaldson has assembled the lineup for Local Heroes Night

Krannert Center

Tim Donaldson has assembled a lineup of local guitarists to kick off Ellnora: The Guitar Festival with a bang.  Two of the musicians joining Tim in Tuesday's free show in the Krannert Center lobby are Tim Frazier and Dody Cosmedy of The No Secret Band.  The three of them came to Illinois Public Media's Studio F to play some music and talk with Brian Moline about the event and their long musical history together.


Donaldson's band, Timmy D and Blind Justice, will serve as the house band for tonight's local all-star lineup.  Find the complete schedule for Tuesday's Local Heroes Night, and all of this year's ELLNORA: The Guitar Festival performances at EllnoraGuitarFestival.com.
