Chris Vallillo: Forgottonia, An Intimate Portrait of Rural Illinois

July 10 @ 1:00 pm

Chris Vallillo performs his new one-man show, “Forgottonia, An Intimate Portrait of Rural Illinois” featuring music he wrote over the last 35 years based on his experiences as a folklorist and songwriter in rural Illinois. Vallillo has spent the past 35 years documenting and preserving the heritage of Western Illinois: the land lovingly called Forgottonia. Join him at the DeKalb County History Center on July 10 at 1:00 p.m.

The show combines music, storytelling, and historically accurate narratives in a solo performance. Along with the performance, Vallillo will speak to the history and backstories of songs that document, reflect, and validate rural lives, reinforcing these communities’ sense of commitment and worth.
