The museum welcomes collector and musician Terry Dillard, part of whose collection is included in the New Harmonies exhibit.
Dillard’s passion for collecting locally made instruments began while in high school when he started collecting fiddles and the stories of those who made them
This promises to be not only informative about the collecting but rich in local history.
Doors will open at 6:30 and light refreshments will be served.
This event is part of the New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music Exhibition on display in Macomb at the Western Illinois Museum between October 23rd and December 5th. Open hours are: Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00am – 4:00pm.
