The Lillie M. Evans Library District will be hosting our free concert series on the first 3 Fridays in June 2022. We are excited to be celebrating our fifth anniversary providing these family-friendly concerts in Princeville’s Stevens Square. The Princeville to Peoria St. Jude Run will provide a water and soda concession (sponsored by the Princeville State Bank) and local food vendors will provide food options in or near the Square before and during the concerts. Food will be available starting at 6pm and the concerts will start at 7pm. Please bring your own lawn chairs for your seating comfort or feel free to stay in your vehicle.
Mike & Lisa Templeton will be leading off the concert series on June 3rd. Mike & Lisa are an acoustic duet from Lostant. They play folk, traditional bluegrass, and old time music. Mike plays a clawhammer (frailing) style banjo and Lisa plays fiddle, bass guitar, ukulele and spoons. Their repertoire entails a wide variety of songs and they love to share their toe tappin' music!
On June 10th, we will be hosting Central Illinois’ River Valley Big Band. Started in 2015 by Susie Dunnan and Ken Hess, they’re focused on bringing the best music has to offer with a live, 18 member band. Enjoy the concert as you listen to the sound of your big band favorites being played.
For our final concert, we are pleased to welcome back the Aristocrats on June 17th. The Aristocrats are an eight piece band playing all of the "Big Band" favorites of yesterday and today. They have a repertoire of arrangements made famous by the big bands of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s which is supplemented with contemporary jazz and popular tunes.
Steven’s Square is located on the corner of West Evans Street and IL-91 in Princeville. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to the Lillie M. Evans Library at 207 N. Walnut in Princeville. More information about this and other library programs can be found on the Lillie M. Evans Library website at lmelibrary.org.
