Off Square Music will present Iowa singer-songwriter Chad Elliott in concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22nd, at Stage Left Cafe, 125 Van Buren St., on the historic Woodstock Square.
Like the dark earth of his Iowa origins, Chad Elliott's life has served as fertile ground for music. Elliott has turned love, loss, fatherhood, divorce and homelessness into lyrics. He performs more than 200 shows each year and is lauded as “Iowa’s Renaissance man” by Culture Buzz. He has cultivated more than 1,000 songs in his career while also honing his skills as painter, sculptor, illustrator and author (Wilderman’s Treetop Tales; Rumble & Flash).
Elliott’s early career demonstrates a love of folk, roots and singer-songwriter music. He has worked with many greats and shared the stage with artists of the highest caliber, including Odetta, Tom Paxton, Loudon Wainwright III, R.L. Burnside, Greg Brown, Bo Ramsey, etc. Today, his songwriting has made a marked shift to Americana. www.chadelliott.net
There is a suggested donation of $15 for all concerts. For reservations, email Keith at email@example.com or phone 815-338-5164.
