Don’t miss the last outdoor concert of the season! This Sunday, at 2pm, Steve Justman performs Vintage Folk and Classic Country. The library has some outdoor seating available, but feel free to bring chairs and blankets. If the weather is too bad, the concert will be held inside the library. This concert is free and no tickets are necessary.
“Steve Justman has been performing Americana and folk music in the Chicago area and neighboring midwest region for many years. A collector of songs as well as other artifacts of Americana, he is in a way a throwback to a different era, singing a mix of traditional and popular folk and country that people might know while focusing on connecting with his audience.
Once upon a time folk music was extremely popular and a folk song could sell a million records. Many, many songs became folk music standards. At the same time, country music was not very popular especially in the big cities, but many songs became standards either by the original artists or by many others who recorded them over the years. This recipe, with a dash of bluegrass, pop standards, and country rock, is the premise behind Steve Justman’s Vintage Folk/Classic Country: The Roots of Americana.
Steve has performed and entertained in many of the best folk and acoustic venues in the Chicago area as well as concerts and programs at many public libraries, festivals and concert series, along with many community and special events for appreciating audiences of all ages.
Steve has performed and appeared live on WGN radio on Rick Kogan’s Sunday Papers show as well as WDCB Public Radio’s Folk Fest with Lilli Kuzma. He has also appeared on Internet and college radio stations as well as local cable television.
Steve is available to perform for all kinds of venues, community and private events, festivals, house concerts and parties, senior centers and clubs, wherever people enjoy popular folk and Americana music.”
