Back by popular demand, folk singer Dean Milano is set to headline the February 5th installment of the Glen Ellyn Public Library’s Open Mic Night at Shannon’s Irish Pub (428 Main Street).
Milano, whose incredible musical style ranges from folk, country, rock, Latin, bluegrass and pop, has been performing since 1966 and has opened for Bo Diddley, The Kingston Trio and Cab Calloway.
Milano is a student of rock an roll, recently publishing a book called The Chicago Music Scene: 1960s and 1970s and has appeared as a guest on Rick Kogan and Nick Digilio’s WGN radio shows and on the WGN TV news. His music has been featured on WXRT, the WDCB Folk Festival and the WFMT Midnight Special.
Open Mic Night is a great venue for performers looking to test new material and for art admirers to discover local creative artists. Acoustic musicians, singer-songwriters, poets and wordsmiths are invited to sign up or a performance slot. Signup begins at 6:30 pm with the first act starting at 7pm.
