This songwriters project and virtual concert is supported by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council.
These new original songs created by 18 regional songwriters reflect their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Songs were recorded by each artist in their own place of shelter. Still images provided by local photographers add to our understanding of the impact that this strange time has had on the small historic town of Galena, Illinois. This project serves as both an artistic and historic reflection of our time in isolation.
Looking for a unique gift to give for Christmas? We have had such good response to the “Covid 19 Galena, The Story in Song” concert (over 1,000 views so far on YouTube) that we have made a DVD of it, which includes a booklet with the lyrics to all the songs. These new original songs created by 18 regional songwriters reflect their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The price is only $14, which includes tax, shipping and handling.
