Blues at the Lincoln Building in Franklin Grove, Ill., May 30
By Ron Colson
FRANKLIN GROVE, Ill. — The many fans of the special Fifth Friday Music Shows at the historic H.I. Lincoln Building in Franklin Grove, Ill., are in for a special treat Friday, May 30. In a special return engagement, harmonica virtuoso Ted Lawrence and longtime blues man Chuck Scordato on guitar and vocals are going to put on a dynamic musical evening that will bring back memories of the musicians who created one of America’s most unique musical art forms — the blues.
For one special night, Elm Street in Franklin Grove will become Beale Street in Memphis. Ted and Chuck performing together as The Saltines have a mutual background in The Uptown Cats as well as other leading blues bands in our region. The musical partnership they have forged shows the intensity that exists in their music after years of sharing the stage in front of enthusiastic audiences.
Two action-packed shows will be at 7 and 9 p.m. Seating is limited, so don’t delay. Tickets are available for a $10 donation by calling the H.I. Lincoln Building at (815) 456-3030 daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and noon to 4 p.m., Sundays; or stop by the H.I. Lincoln Building during the same hours.
