Katie Dahl at Oak Park Library 4/25/2019
The next free Oak Park Public Library concert will be on Thursday, April 25, when we feature Katie Dahl, well known to those who enjoy time in Door County, Wisconsin. Doors will open at 6:30pm, concert at 7pm.
Recently she performed at the Maple Street Chapel. The announcement for that concert included this information: Singer-songwriter Katie Dahl has performed her original songs everywhere from the dusty cliffs of Mali, to the winding canals of southern France, to the cedar forests of the American north woods. Though she’s particularly well-respected on her home turf of Door County, Wisconsin, Katie tours regularly and has earned accolades nationwide for the depth and power of her alto voice, the literate candor of her songs, and the easy humor of her live performances. Katie is also a playwright whose musical Victory Farm premiered to high acclaim in 2012 and was made into a live cast album. Karen Impola of Iowa Public Radio says, “Katie Dahl’s music combines a love for her rural midwestern roots, a droll wit, and a clear-eyed appraisal of modern life, all served up in a voice as rich as cream.”
