MOUNT MORRIS – Chicago guitarists Rob Anderlik and Mike Church will perform during the Let Freedom Ring Festival from 5 to 8 p.m. July 3 on Wesley Avenue, downtown Mount Morris, two blocks south of Rt. 64 on Wesley Ave., with special guests Josh McPartland on mandolin and Drew Littel on cajon
Two of the top bluegrass musicians in the Chicago area, Rob and Mike first met at late night jam session and felt a deep musical connection from the moment they played together. Even better, they discovered they shared a wide range of musical interests, ranging from Southern and Classic Rock, Blues, Swing, Jazz Standards, Cinematic Instrumentals, Folk Music and of course, Bluegrass. They have quickly built a reputation as one of the most versatile acoustic bands in the Midwest. Their music has been described as Bill Monroe meets Robert Johnson at the crossroads and they’ll be playing a selection of Blues, Bluegrass and American Roots Music from 5-8 pm on July 3rd.
The Ogle County Beef Producers have a concession stand. There will also be a watermelon eating contest and other activities.
