Text Box: A Note from your Pres….


NIBA Members!

We had a great NIBA Festival! Some incredible Bands and great weather! We had some evening jamming and camping as well.


Terry Feldott of Guitar Junkyard, who recently had a severe heart attack, is doing very well! The Henry Torpedo Boys will be back in full force this Saturday night at the Bureau County Fair in Princeton, Illinois. That's right folks, Terry Feldott is up to performing again after his recent brush with fate!! We will take the stage at 7pm and will entertain folks while they enjoy delicious BBQ until 8pm. Please come and have some fun at one of the longest running Fairs in Central Illinois. 


We, in the NIBA, are saddened to learn of the passing of Juel Ulven, the founder of and driving force behind the Fox Valley Folk Music and Storytelling Festival. His influence in the Chicago area folk community was without compare.


Go see and/or stream live music and help support musicians! Musicians make money by performing, selling merchandise and tips. Please purchase their wares to keep live music alive and well. They spend a great deal of time to provide us with great music, let’s show them that we appreciate and recognize them!
