The first day of The Venue's Americana Music Fest – held last weekend in downtown Aurora – offered a little something for everyone.
From the soaring vocals and tight harmonies of Nora O'Connor and Casey McDonough to the soul rattling vocals and riveting guitar work of Nathan Graham to the Arlo Guthrie-inspired storytelling of Chicago Farmer and The Fieldnotes, the evening provided many lasting musical memories.
