The Old Town School of Folk Music presents Iron Heart Chicago, a new festival celebrating the international range of Chicago’s local musical heroes, with a series of free concerts performed during the evening rush hour at 40 different Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) “L” stations across all eight lines, June 10-17, from 4-6pm. Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music, considered the largest community school of the arts in the United States, teaches and celebrates music and cultural expressions rooted in the traditions of diverse American and global communities.

Each artist will perform two sets for commuters and the neighboring community during the 4-6 pm timeframe. Performances will take place on specially-created stages located at the ground level entrances to elevated train stations encompassing all eight lines: Blue, Brown, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red and Yellow. Performers will rotate between venues and dates so that any one late afternoon between 4-6pm, between 3-5 different “L” stations will be enlivened with song.
