Two-Day Marathon Of Beatles Song Performances Take Place To Celebrate A Grand Opening

The Beatles were an astounding British group that brought fans to their knees as soon as they came on stage. John, Paul, George and Ringo made the front page several times for their outrageous following and funky tunes. This Saturday and Sunday Jan. 21 & 22 the Old Town School of Folk Music will give you the chance to sing along to your entire collection of Beatles tunes from 1963-1970. Every album being sung will have a different set of teachers and students, and will be under the supervision of resident guitar guru Steve Levitt. Saturday at 7pm will cover all of Beatles for Sale, and Sunday at 5pm will cover Magical Mystery Tour. It’s guaranteed to be a great two days, and you’ll even get to hang out with tons of Beatles ensemble members from the past few decades! The event will be a grand scale sing-a-long inside of the beautiful Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall located at 4545 North Lincoln Ave from 3pm to 11pm both nights. There’s a suggested donation of $10 at the door, and you’re encouraged to bring your own instruments, voice and love.

Irish Christmas in America

It's absolutely no secret that I adore all things Irish (have you seen me on the streets between March 16th-18th, I'm a blissful mess) and all things Christmas (I may or may not tear up at the sight of a lit Christmas tree). So when I stumbled upon Irish Christmas in America, I had to take some deep breaths, remind myself I'm not 8 years old anymore and dove right into finding out more about this fantastic fusion!
