GAR Hall

This week, we're talking with actor Doug Day. This weekend, he'll present a reading of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." He talks about editing the well-known holiday story down to a manageable lengthy, about using both the text and his voice to help distinguish the many characters in the story. He also gives us a sample of what's in store. The performance is Sunday afternoon at 3:00 at the GAR Hall in downtown Peoria.

Barry Cloyd

This week, we're talking with Barry Cloyd. He and his band Celtricity are headlining the "Roots of Folk" concert, Saturday night at 7:30 at the GAR Hall in downtown Peoria. He talks about the two other bands on the program -- The Way Down Wanderers, and Walten Pond. He contrasts the generational approaches to folk music the three bands offer. And he updates us on some of his other musical projects.
