Sunday, September 13, the Swedish singer Sofia Talvik will be performing at the Dairy Building in Bishop Hill, Illinois at 7 p.m. Sofia Talvik brings a new, interesting side to folk music by playing a unique blend of folk-pop using an acoustic guitar. This American genre filtered through her Swedish heritage, becomes something totally unique, a blend that has attracted attention from American reviewers, blogs and music lovers, allowing her to tour the US several times. In 2008, she became the first Swedish female singer to play the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.

This concert is free and open to the public. Sofia’s musical performance is sponsored by the Bishop Hill Heritage Association, the Twinflower Inn, Ca’d’Zan House Concerts, and the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation. The Dairy Building is located at 410 North Erickson Street, on the north end of Bishop Hill. For more details about the concert, call 309 927-3899 or email
