Foundry Hall present: Chris Vallillo "Oh Freedom! Songs of Civil Rights"
In a show created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movement, award winning Illinois folksinger Chris Vallillo performs pivotal songs from the music that inspired and sustained this landmark movement.  Intermixed with the music, Vallillo presents first hand accounts of the historic struggle and discusses the impact of music to our nations most important social cause.
From the Freedom Riders, to the the jails of Montgomery Alabama, and Parchman Prison, all the way to Washington DC,  both old and new songs of the era spoke of the yearning for equal rights, the struggle and the determination to win freedom.  They engaged and energized the movement and became the backbone of the nonviolent civil disobedience movement led by Dr King and others.   Music was a huge part of the process both locally and nationally.
Chris Vallillo is a singer/songwriter and folk musician who makes the people and places of unmetropolitan America come to life in song. Having spent the last 30 years in the rural Midwes.
Performing on six-string and bottleneck slide guitars and harmonica, Vallillo weaves original, contemporary, and traditional songs and narratives into a compelling and entertaining portrait of the history and lifestyles of the Midwest. Dirty Linen magazine described the music as, vivid, original story songs delivered with an eye for detail and a sense of history while Folk Wax Magazine Editor, Arthur Wood  said Vallillos guitar playing flows like warm honey and is a true aural delight.
