Bucky Halker Concert in the Gazebo

From the beginning of Illinois statehood through the folk revival that swept the nation and state in the 1950s, the many people who have made Illinois their home produced a huge body of folksongs and music. This music includes historical ballads, protest songs, labor anthems, gospel songs, fiddle tunes, legions of bluegrass and early country
