FRANKLIN GROVE – Fans of the popular Fifth Friday Music Shows at the historic H.I. Lincoln Building in Franklin Grove are in for a very special event on Friday, Aug. 25. Rescheduled from July 28th music fans will now be treated to a special appearance by Brian FitzGerald and Marty McCormack. Well known throughout North America, Canada, Ireland, Italy, and the Netherlands as Switchback these talented musicians will provide a rousing evening of American Roots blended with Celtic Soul.
Featured at over 200 international engagements a year Switchback has shared the stage with artists as diverse as The Moody Blues, Gaelic Storm, Leon Russell, and Lee Greenwood. Equally at home in giant 15,000 seat stadiums or in intimate settings like Nashville’s Bluebird Café or Franklin Grove’s historic H.I. Lincoln Building, Switchback can connect with everyone who loves Irish Music – or just really good music. Their appeal is truly universal.
In an effort to bring these international touring musicians at an affordable hometown price, there will be two action packed 45 minute shows at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Seating is limited so don’t delay. Tickets are available for a $10 donation by calling the H.I. Lincoln building at 815-456-3030 daily from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., noon-4 p.m. on Sundays, or stop by the H.I. Lincoln building during the same hours. Tickets may be available at the door, but previous Switchback appearances have sold out in advance so plan ahead for Aug. 25.
This is a chance to see internationally touring artists in a home town setting, a not to be missed opportunity.
