GALESBURG – The Carl Sandburg Songbag Concert Series continues with the Dance Hall Doves on Sunday, Oct. 9 at Carl Sandburg State Historic Site in Galesburg.
A talented duo, the Dance Hall Doves feature two key players from the Galesburg entertainment scene. Director of the Orpheum Theatre Erin Glasnovich is known for her guitar playing and soulful vocals as Sullivan's Daughter. Employed by Music Makers, Corie "Cow" Weisenberger lends his musical talents to such bands as the Memphis Dives. Combining their musical prowess, the Dance Hall Doves feature a mix of bluegrass, folk, rock, oldies and original tunes.
