Genesee Theatre

Waukegan, IL 60085
Voice: 800.982.2787
Very few musicians have written and performed more "mega-hits" than George Michael. So when the superstar passed away suddenly in 2016, singer/songwriter Jayden Frost made it his mission to share the artist's iconic songs with the world.

To create the ultimate concert experience, he teamed up with two industry heavyweights: George Michael's former bass player Deon Estus, who was also a member of Wham!; and Dave Schultz, who played keyboards in Berlin and the Goo Goo Dolls. With their help, Frost has created Freedom – A Tribute to George Michael and Wham!

Each song is recreated to perfection – from fan favorites on Wham!'s debut album Make It Big to George Michael's solo albums Faith and Listen without Prejudice. Every production detail is considered, including costume changes and visual presentations that highlight the different eras of the singer's career.

If you're a George Michael fan or simply want to experience some great '80s music, this concert should be on your bucket list.

John Prine: The Tree of Forgiveness World Tour at Ravinia Festival
Ravinia Festival
418 Sheridan Road
Highland Park, IL 60035
Voice: 847.266.5100
A two-time Grammy winner and 2019 nominee for both the Rock & Roll and Songwriters Halls of Fame, John Prine is among the English language’s premier phrase-turners. Almost 50 years into a remarkable career—his classic debut album, simply titled John Prine, is recognized in the Grammy Hall of Fame and his songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Carly Simon, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, George Strait, Miranda Lambert, the Zac Brown Band, and many others—he has earned critical acclaim for his new album, The Tree of Forgiveness, which was produced by Grammy Award–winning producer Dave Cobb and recently debuted at number five on the Billboard 200, a career-high chart position for the legendary singer, songwriter, and performer.

Like many great Southern storytellers, singer-songwriter Tyler Childers has fallen in love with a place. The people, landmarks, and moments from his childhood home of Lawrence County, KY, populate Purgatory, his debut album that’s simultaneously modern and as ancient as the Appalachian Mountains in which events unfold. Its 10 songs are semiautobiographical sketches of his growth from wayward youth to happily married man, told in the tradition of a Southern gothic novel with a classic noir antihero who may just be irredeemable.

Welcome to the unique world of Blarney Island Drag Boat Racing.

Want to watch the Races? Take the Blarney Island Shuttle Boat Service from the Port Of Blarney. If you have your own boat, there is an expanded section of FREE parking on Blarney Island during race nights, now including the brat bar row. The front row to the race course *Blarney Island pier parking* is reserved, or pay by race night spots. The pit area is race boat parking ONLY! These are reserved from 5:30 to 7:30 (or race ending). Once the races are over, all slips are once again open to FREE parking.

All Thursday night racing is run by the Northern Illinois Drag Boat Association. All race participants are members of the Northern Illinois Drag boat Association (NIDBA), which manages the weekly race events. Blarney Island is the sponsor and race promoter. Want to Race on Thursday nights? The NIDBA is happy to be a resource in assisting you with becoming a member, learning the racing rules and other boating regulations.

Art Exhibition: Head in the Trees
Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods
21850 N. Riverwoods Rd.
Riverwoods, IL 60015
Voice: 224.633
In Head in the Trees, artist Kaye Buchman addresses themes relating to the natural forces and regenerative energies found in our physical environment and the vital stories they tell. Her large scale drawings and mixed-media paintings begin with watercolor under-paintings and spills inspired by algae blooms overlaid with intricate pen & ink drawings. Her inspiration was found in the quiet presence of Ryerson Woods, the lively water currents of Lake Michigan, and the otherworldly qualities of southern Illinois' Shawnee National Forest.

While researching native plant and tree colonies, migratory bird routes, and water currents for this series of work, Buchman was drawn to the life-affirming relationships that exist amongst these ecosystems and the messages they convey about our inter-connectedness. She was also been reminded of the importance of natural spaces for igniting imaginative thought and creative action. With a nod to fairytales and myths, and the potency of the whole of nature as an enduring metaphor, her goal is to bring attention to the intrinsic power of our natural environment and the responsibility we all share in ensuring its survival.

A Retrospective on the Caricatures of Native Son Frank Willmarth
Barrington History Museum
212 W. Main Street
Barrington, IL 60010
Voice: 847.381.1730
Frank “Pancho” Willmarth was born right here in Barrington in 1906. After attending the University of Missouri as a journalism major and writing for a humorous newspaper during his time at the university, Frank headed west with hopes of pursuing a career where he could put his artistic talent to use. His travels took him all over the United States where he would sketch the people and the places that surrounded him where ever he was.

The first sketch he sold was after a football game in Salt Lake City, when his date never showed up he decided to sketch various aspects of the game and sold them to a local newspaper for a dollar. He was now a paid artist…. Frank’s true success would be realized in California.

Though still travelling throughout the state to sketch caricatures at fairs, carnivals, vacation spots and college campuses, his first major opportunity came in Los Angeles. Frank was a very kind and likeable man who got along with most people he met his sense of humor was contagious. This incidentally led to a great many connections, and an opportunity was given to Frank to sketch the who’s who in Hollywood for the Brown Derby Restaurant.

The Derby’s walls were lined with sketches of famous celebrities that would frequent the restaurant during the golden age of Hollywood. A great deal of the Brown Derby’s caricatures were done by Frank himself, which allowed him to meet some of the nation’s biggest stars.

His first job for the derby was to sketch Mae West and Rocky Marciano. Later on in his career he would be hired by the San Francisco Press club to sketch the club’s many guests who were not only Hollywood celebrities, but foreign diplomats, U.S. presidents, famous authors, and the occasional astronaut or FBI agent. Frank had the opportunity to get to know some of the world’s greatest individuals.

After an amazingly interesting career, Frank would eventually settle down with his wife Gertrude and their four children in an old mining town in Sierra County called Downieville where Frank was a columnist writing humorous articles for the Mountain Messenger, a local newspaper. Frank lived out the rest of his days surrounded by his loving family and comforted by the memories and remarkable stories he had accumulated throughout his 96 years on Earth. Frank died in 2002 but this exhibit aims at resurrecting the man known as “Pancho”.

Guided Tours at Volo Bog

As Winter begins to wane, Volo Bog clings tightly to the cold. Layers of peat act as insulation against the thaw, clinging to winter just a little longer. Dormant winter shrubs and deciduous tamarack conifers await a warming of their roots to begin again their active life. While we may be ready for signs of spring, Volo Bog is still offering signs of winter activity. Deer tracks, rabbit scat & the meandering footprints of raccoons all reveal activity in Volo Bog. Peeking through the snow, carnivorous pitcher plants begin to show signs of greening with the lengthing days. Join a guided tour of this fascinating ecosystem - Illinois' only remaining open-water quaking bog - a National Natural Landmark! These public bog tours are open to individuals, families and small groups without reservations, however, groups of 10 or more are asked to please phone 815-344-1294 for special arrangements. Tours are about one hour.

Imagine a tot-sized replica of a town built especially for kids or a place where they can drive a car to the grocery store, gas up at the local gas station, be a star on stage or a pizza stand owner! Our Neighborhood is a place where children ages 1-6 can practice various roles in a community, challenging themselves to explore, imagine and create, exercising both mind and body. They may even enter the Neighborhood's "backyard" where they can climb, crawl, slide and be busy bodies in a safe environment! We have designed our Children's Neighborhood Museum specifically for children 1-6 years old.
