Virtual Midsummer Blues Concert

Grab a seat in your favorite spot, unwind, and tune into Allerton’s Facebook page for a Midsummer Blues Concert featuring Billy Galt. Listen as Guitarist and Singer, Billy Galt Music, performs a selection of blues songs, from the Allerton Music Barn, that are sure to complement the warm, summer evening.

As part of our Allerton Summer Concert Series, we hope this virtual event lends your ears a familiar sound as you experience the Allerton music scene in a brand new way. Despite not being able to gather together at Allerton, our goal of bringing music and nature together to create a lifelong memory remains the same.

Please join us in thanking our generous sponsors for supporting this community endeavor: U of I Community Credit Union, Kirby Medical Center, The Ayers Family, and The Herbold Family Trust.

How to view this event:
Visit the Allerton Park & Retreat Center Facebook page on Friday, July 17 at 6:00 pm to find the concert video. Make sure you’re settled in a peaceful spot, perhaps with a refreshing drink in hand, before pressing play to enjoy the show.

About the Artist:
Since 1980, Billy’s music has been his profession, honing his skills to back notable blues personalities such as Homesick James, Sonny Boy Williamson Jr., Maxwell Street Jimmy, and Shirley King. A local and Allerton favorite, Billy Galt has put on skillful, soothing shows each year at our Reds, Whites, and the Blues Concert in July.

Future performances will be available here; or stay in touch by signing up for our enewsletter here.
