Music at the Museum Concert Series
June 14 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Music at the Museum Concert Series welcomes the folky-tonk duo Pushing Chain Thursday, June 14th at 7:00 pm at the Illinois State Museum auditorium. Known for their strong songwriting, tight harmonies, and a gonzo performance style, Pushing Chain’s Americana-roots sound has been winning them fans across the Midwest and beyond
This Minnesota based duo features Boyd Blomberg on guitar and vocals and Adam Moe on fiddle and vocals. They have been playing together since 1997, and recorded their first album in 1998. The duo believes in strong harmonies, kazoos, and sad songs, that a guitarist and a fiddler can cover Hendrix if they want to and that music can cause tears and laughter, sometimes in the course of one song.
They recently sang the National Anthem at Target Field before a Minnesota Twins game,. were featured act at the 2016 Minnesota State Fair and played the Big Top Chautauqua, among many other great venues.
The Music at the Museum Concerts are hosted by Illinois singer/songwriter Chris Vallillo and take place every 2nd Thursday of the month all year long at the Illinois State Museum Auditorium. Concerts start at 7:00 pm, admission is $10.00 for adults and $8.00 for museum members and kids under 12. There will be a variety of desserts and drinks available during the break.
