These live outdoor musical performances begin at 7:30 pm every Tuesday evening, from June 18–August 6, at Independence Grove in Libertyville.
Led by harmonica master and songwriter Pierre Lacocque, Mississippi Heat is a world-class Chicago blues band. Their motto is “Traditional Blues with a Unique Sound” as they present fresh yet vintage-based musical ideas. The band’s conviction is there is no deeper music than Delta-inspired blues to express what lies in everyone’s soul.
Concerts are held at the preserve's outdoor amphitheater, Millennia Plaza, overlooking a 115-acre lake. Bring chairs and blankets.
