First Fridays music back in Mount Morris


MOUNT MORRIS – The Pinecrest Grove Theater is going to host a special February First Fridays featuring some of the best musicians in Northern Illinois. 

This special show is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1.

The drawing for musician’s time slots will begin at 6:30 p.m. The musical format will provide 15+ minutes for each performer. After the individual performances, all of the musicians will (time permitting) gather on stage for a jam session to wrap up the evening’s festivities

Talented musicians from across Northern Illinois, and often neighboring states, appear on a regular basis. The music often described as New Folk or Americana is varied and includes country, bluegrass, blues, folk, mountain soul, gospel, soft rock, and eclectic mixes of all of the above.

Instruments are all acoustic and a professional sound system is supplied by Mike Bratt. 

Participation is encouraged so bring your instrument and join the show, or kick back and listen to the music. Admission is by free will donation. Bring a friend and enjoy a great evening.

First Fridays is a part of Northern Illinois’ Friday night music scene along with 2nd Fridays in Lanark, 3rd Fridays in Franklin Grove (H.I. Lincoln Building), 4th Friday at the Dixon Senior Center, and special 5th Friday (when they occur) shows in Franklin Grove.

The McKendrie Street Café, directly adjacent to the theatre, features an extensive menu (recently expanded) of quality food and beverage.

Pinecrest Grove Community Center is located six blocks south of IL Rte 64 on McKendrie Street in Mount Morris. There is ample parking in the parking lot on the northside of PGCC, plus an overflow lot on the west side of PGCC. The building is completely handicap accessible.
