Small-town stories with Neal Hagberg presented by Lincoln Land Concert Association

Send a link to a friend

[September 20, 2008]  Neal is coming to town -- Neal Hagberg, that is, the great storyteller in words and songs -- with stories about his growing-up years in a small town and the memories he treasures and wants to share with you. So mark this date on your calendar: Saturday, Sept. 27, at 7:30 p.m. at Lincoln Christian College's Earl Hargrove Chapel is the opening of the 2008-2009 concert series sponsored by Lincoln Land Concert Association.

DonutsNeal Hagberg (half of the Neal & Leandra duo) loves small towns, seeing in them the value that is often missed in the eyes of the world -- the neighborliness where, in a crisis, the person in need knows you on a first-name basis, and children grow up in an environment where the whole town has a stake in raising each child. He has put together a solo concert celebrating his experiences growing up in a small town. A master storyteller in song and story, he will have you laughing one moment and crying the next.

The performance is divided into three sections:

  1. Who brought us here; or, Oscar Sorby, Helga Paulson and Happy Marbles

  2. How we grew up; or dogs, bikes and swimming holes

  3. Where do we go from here; or, the staying, the leaving and the coming back home

Neal brings his guitar, his voice, his smile and his great sense of humor to Lincoln to give you an evening of fun and delight.

Season memberships are still available. Contact Judy Awe, 123 Crestwood Drive, phone 217-732-4758.
