Vallillo performs at History Village
Chris Vallillo will perform “By the Rivers Gently Flowing” at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 24, at the Jefferson County Historical Village.
Vallillo created the program for the Illinois Bicentennial. A nationally-acclaimed singer, songwriter and folk musician, he strives to make the people and places of “unmetropolitan” America come to life in song. Vallillo spent the last 30 years in the rural areas of the Midwest.
The program is partially funded by the Illinois Humanities Council and is sponsored by Peoples National Bank. The program is provided free of charge, but donations are appreciated.
The Jefferson County Historical Village is located at 1411 N. 27th St., Mt. Vernon. For additional information about the program or the historical society, call the office at 246-0033.
