We are grateful to John Heasly who has coordinated the Songbag Concert Series for so many years for the Association.
John is taking a well-deserved break from coordinating the Songbag Concerts and the CSHSA's Songbag Committee (Gary Wagle, chair)
will be coordinating the future Songbag Concerts.  Thanks again to John Heasly for his talent and leadership in making the Songbag Concerts
at the Carl Sandburg State Historic Site a success!

A donation of $5.00 per person is suggested as the door (or gate) entry fee.  These door receipts go to the Songbag Concert performers to supplement a base amount paid by the Carl Sandburg Historic Site Association.  If you enjoy the concert, please be generous in support of our performers. 

Songbag Concert Series performers and refreshment costs are underwritten by the Carl Sandburg Historic Site Association and its members at a cost of approximately $2,500 per year. If you would like to support the Songbag Concert Series, become a member of the Association, and/or feel free to make a donation to the Carl Sandburg Historic Site Association, PO Box 585, Galesburg, IL 61402-0585.
