LLCC Recital Series features Emerald Underground Sunday, April 3
The Emerald Underground will perform in the Lincoln Land Community College Recital Series on Sunday, April 3 at 4 p.m. in the Trutter Center on the Springfield campus. The recital is free and open to the public.
The Emerald Underground, consisting of Jack White, Chas Blythe, Megan Turner, Nat Radwine, Lori McKenzie and Bill McKenzie, brings Celtic music into the 21st century in a fusion of jigs, reels, ballads and rock-based tunes. What was originally the vision of former LLCC student Lanny Montgomery has evolved into the longest running Celtic band of its kind in central Illinois. In its 2001 origin as Stone Ring Circle, Montgomery brought together a band of musicians who had come from rock, blues, jazz and classical backgrounds to form a new and different sound for local audiences. More information on the evolution of the band is available at www.theemeraldunderground.net.
The final performance in the 2015-2016 LLCC Recital Series will be:
May 1 – Paul Van Heuklom – Native American Flutes
All performances are held Sundays at 4 p.m. in the Trutter Center on the LLCC-Springfield campus, and are free and open to the public.
