Chico Schwall's American Roots
Chico's Rent Party
Wed, May 15, 7:30 - 9:00 pm
Sheffer Recital Hall, The Shedd Institute
Need to raise the rent? Cook up some good food, hire the best musicians you can and get somebody to watch the door. We'll reconvene some of the great players & singers from American roots shows and raise the roof while we raise the rent. We'll include some favorite from previous shows, include some that got left out and pull together some celebratory music for this one. It's a party!
