Botanical Roots Final Concert
Morry Sochat and the Special 20s (Blues)
Doors open 7:30 pm, Show starts 8:30 pm, Headliner 9:30 pm
The final concert of the Conservatory’s fresh-air Botanical Roots series features blues music with a touch of swing. Local opener Swick & Jones will kick off the show at 8:30 pm, bringing together elements of folk, blues, Americana, rock, and pop music for a wonderful blend that everyone can enjoy. Our headliner band, Morry Sochat and the Special 20s, hails from the Windy City. The Special 20s bring a freshness to Chicago blues, mixing in the sounds of swing and 1950s rock ‘n roll. Concerts are held on the Conservatory Terrace rain or shine. Seating is limited, so you may bring your own lawn chair. Food and beverage are available from Mad Anthony Brewing Company; no outside food or drink permitted. Admission: $6 ages 13+; 12 and under free. Members entrance and early admission.
