Lojo Russo

6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.

FREE Admission

Lojo Russo is described as a songwriter with a lot of lyrical power, a guitarist with powerful playing and a singer with one heck of a voice who performs with the energy and rocking empowerment of Ani DiFranco, the graceful folksiness of the Indigo Girls and the gritty blues of Susan Tedeschi". Russo has been making music along the Big Muddy since her days living in Twin Cities playing in jam bands, Celtic groups, freestyle funk folk and now in the Quad Cities as a solo touring artist. Like the river she moves from sweet folk to roots rock without missing a beat powerfully...effortlessly.
