Tommy & Moya Sands at Krypto March 3

Charlotte’s Web presents Tommy and Moya Sands at the Krypto Music Lounge, 308 W. State St., starting at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 3.

Get in the spirit for St. Patrick’s Day! Legendary Irish singer, songwriter and social activist Tommy Sands has been praised by Pete Seeger as having achieved “… that difficult but wonderful balance between knowing and loving the traditions of his homeland and being concerned with the future of the whole world.” Two of his recent projects speak volumes about him as a human being—teaching underprivileged prisoners in Reno, Nev., to write their own songs to defend themselves in court, and completing a CD written with Protestant and Catholic children in Northern Ireland. This show is co-sponsored by The Tin Whistle and Lorden Distributing. Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door.

Tickets are available at Rockford Area Arts Council, 713 E. State St., 963-6765; The Postal Shoppe, Edgebrook Center, 397-7301; and Tin Whistle, N. Main & Auburn, 963-0270; or by mail with check and SASE, 10928 N. Main, Rockton, IL 61072. For Web information, call 964-2238.
