Award Winning Flatpicker at the Museum

The Music at the Museum Concert Series features award winning flat picker Eric Lambert on Thursday, December the 14th at 7:00 PM in the auditorium of the Illinois State Museum in Springfield. Eric Lambert continually impresses audiences with his original elixir of feel-good Americana infused with bluegrass, blues, rock, and dosed with soul.  He will be joined onstage by the outstanding mandolinist Josh Mcpartland.

Voted the 2015 Best Entertainer by the Chicago Music Awards, Eric is a world-class flatpicking guitarist and outstanding performer,   Lambert is an international-touring artist with a career spanning over 40 years. He has played in clubs, concert halls, and arenas in over ten countries as a solo artist and with countless ensembles, most recently with the award-winning Chicago bluegrass outfit the Henhouse Prowlers. His creative output reflects the diversity of his influences, namely: Doc Watson, Tony Rice, Clarence White, Bill Monroe, Norman Blake, B.B. King and Robert Johnson but Eric's music is distinctive, a crowd-pleasing blend of pure American music.  Eric's mandolinist Josh Mcpartland is also a highly regarded player having studied with world class mandolinist Don Sternberg and performing with the Punch Brother banjo player Noam Pikelney.

The Music at the Museum Concerts are hosted by Illinois singer/songwriter Chris Vallillo and take place every 2nd Thursday of the month all year long at the Illinois State Museum Auditorium.  Concerts start at 7:00 pm, admission is $10.00 for adults and $8.00 for museum members and kids under 12.   There will be a variety of desserts and drinks available during the break.
