Halker is a historian, songwriter and guitarist. He has been likened to Depression-era folk singer Guthrie and his music linked to “the passionate fire of John Steinbeck.”
Halker draws on his experiences traveling, Midwest populist roots and interest in American history. His music conjures country, folk, blues and rock. The Chicago Tribune has called him “one of Chicago’s most interesting songwriters.”
Tickets to the concert at the downtown Springfield site are $10 for adults and $8 for museum members and children under 12.
