With beautiful cascades of water in the background, and incredible acoustics (thanks in no small part to the towering sandstone cliffs, across the creek) there's no other venue in Illinois quite like Covel Creek.
Widely regarded among kayakers and rafters as one of the most scenic tracts of water the Midwest has to offer, Covel Creek is a winding, and rapid-filled, stream running through south-central Starved Rock Country. There are no public parks nestled along Covel Creek, making this concert a particularly rare opportunity to soak in the natural splendor of this hidden gem.
This Saturday, from 4:30 p.m. - 7 p.m., The Ottawa Friendship House, located just five miles from I-80, will transform their scenic property into this one-day music venue. This year's guests, the rapidly rising roots-rock troupe Katie Belle and the Bell Rangers, are the perfect sonic pairing for this little piece of Midwestern paradise.
