Waco Brothers headline Square Roots fest
Chicago lost one of its finest music festivals when Old Town School of Folk Music pulled the plug on its annual Folk & Roots event earlier this year. Taking its place is the new Square Roots Festival, sponsored by local chamber types and curated by Old Town.
There are no big names at this new event but Saturday night will be fun, nonetheless, with the Waco Brothers headlining. The Waco’s Jon Langford has been an Old Town staple, performing at the school and fest and creating promotional art work. It should be a great show. Ezra Furman opens. There are a number of interesting bands throughout the weekend. See the full schedule here.
