Joe Hickerson in June 2010 at the Washington Folk Festival

Grab a friend or your family and make your way to the Library to listen to nationally acclaimed folklorist and folk singer/songwriter, Joe Hickerson.  He’ll be performing tonight at the Oak Park Main Library (834 Lake Street) at 7 PM. For more than 50 years, Hickerson has entertained audiences across the country and world with his repertoire of folksongs, many with choruses. Pete Seeger has called him “a great songleader.”  For 35 years, Hickerson was Librarian and Director of the Archive of Folk Song/Culture at the Library of Congress.

Called an “..amazing showman and tradition bearer,” Hickerson is sure to provide a warm evening of entertainment for folk music fans, young and old.

The event is FREE and open to the public. The doors open at 6:30 PM, and seating is first come, first served.  Meet Joe Hickerson and purchase CDs following the concert.

Presented as a part of the Friends of the Library Folk Music Series.
