will perform from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, May 29 at The Burg’s Bar and
Grill, 58 S. Cherry in Galesburg, and from 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday,
May 30 at the Carl Sandburg Birthplace, 313 E. 3rd St, Galesburg.

Admission is free to both concerts. A donation of $3 per person is

The Friday night show will also feature music by the Prairie

Davidson and Wheatman, who live in Nashville, most recently performed
in the Off-Broadway production of “Lonesome Traveler,” a musical
journey through American folk music that has been nominated for
Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical from the 2015 Outer Critics
Circle.

One of Davidson’s compositions, “Can’t Stop That Train,” was a
Finalist in the 2014 Great American Song Contest.

Davidson graduated summa cum laude from Knox, with honors in theatre
for her development of a historical exhibit for the Bishop Hill
Heritage Association’s Steeple Building Museum. She participated in
numerous theatrical and musical performances at Knox and in the
Seattle area.
