    10956 N Dickson Mounds Rd, Lewistown, IL 61542, USA

    For more than 20 years, people have gathered at Dickson Mounds on the third Saturday of every month for an evening of musical entertainment. Hosted by Chris Vallillo, an accomplished musician and performer in his own right, the series features Roots/Folk music and other genres offered by a talented variety of performers.

    The Shanties “New Irish” music is filled with rocked-up Irish favorites, old, new and originals.   Though there is nothing sweeter than an Irish ballad played by 4 singers – 2 guys and 2 girls, the focus is the up-tempo rowdier melodies with pop Irish influence from Solas, Gaelic Storm, Great Big Sea and Flogging Molly to name a few.  The blended singing and instrument sounds of fiddle, mandolin, whistle, guitar, and the Irish (drum) bodhran create the unique acoustic rock sound of The Shanties.

    Doors open at 6:00 p.m. $8 adults, $5 kids. Visit http://ginridge.com/extras/hickory-ridge-concert-series/ for information about the artists.

This 3-hour workshop leads participants through (1) basic elements of positive customer service; (2) why good customer service is the second most important aspect of business after “product or service” offered; (3) how successful customer service includes both internal (staff, etc.) and external (patrons) customers; (4) how to adapt concepts into relevant action for each business. Attendees will leave with skills that can be put into immediate practice at work in the community and at home. Instructed by Carol Davis. Fee: $20
