On Saturday, February 10, at 2:00, the Tiskilwa Historical Society will host Eric Taylor, Chicago, in an hour of music to warm your hearts and chase away the winter blues. As a goodwill gesture to the community, the historical society will be collecting food and funds and raising awareness for the Bureau Country Food Pantry.
A graduate of Columbia College, Eric will be playing his original compositions as well as the music of The Band, Elton John, and even “The Pina Colada Song” upon request. The setting in the community room will be low-key and coffeehouse style, with Eric singing as well as playing the acoustic guitar.
The historical society is continuing its tradition offering a concert with the “price of admission” being a non-perishable food item, paper product, soap or detergent to be donated to the Bureau County Food Pantry. Just inside the entrance door, you’ll find a big red collection box waiting to be filled. In addition, for those who don’t care to tote a bag of food, a Valentine basket will also be available to accept cash donations.
Following the program, the society will provide refreshments and host a social time in the galleries. Everyone is invited to join us for this afternoon of soothing music.
Eric Taylor, acoustic guitarist, will perform a free concert at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 10, at Tiskilwa’s Museum on Main. All museum galleries will be open, so come early and stay late.
