Songbag Fall Concert Series to perform at historic site

The Carl Sandburg Historic Site is playing host to folk music combo Dan Zahn and Kate Moretti on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

The performance is part of a series of concerts, the Songbag Fall Concert Series, sponsored by the Carl Sandburg State Historic Site Association in honor of Sandburg, a collector and performer of American folk songs. The name of the series draws its inspiration from the poet’s 1927 book, “The American Songbag,” which contains words and music to 290 Americana songs.

Jazz-loving music artists Moretti and Zahn met in 1995 and co-founded and the first Lake County Folk Festival. Since then, the two have performed as a duo throughout the Midwest.

The event will take place at 313 E. Third St. and refreshments will be provided. Additional fall Songbag concerts will be held Oct. 26 and Nov. 30.
