Chicago-based singer and hammered dulcimer player Phil Passen will have a concert in Bishop Hill, using songs to tell the story of the growth and development of Illinois. This musical performance will start at 1:30 p.m. in the Dairy Building on Saturday, April 14. The music in this concert reflects the story of Illinois, which has been shaped not only by its land and natural features – the prairies, lakes, and rivers – but also by the many cultures that have flourished here: those of Native Americans, French, Germans, African Americans, Latin Americans, and numerous others. This program is free and open to the public due to the sponsorships of the Bishop Hill Heritage Association and the Illinois Humanities Council Road Scholar Speakers Bureau. The Dairy Building is located at 410 North Erickson Street. For more details about this concert, please call 309 927-3899 or email
