Chicago is famously a “city of neighborhoods” each of which has it’s own character. The City of Chicago has designated seventy-seven neighborhoods within the city limits that include pockets of nearly every culture on our planet. 77 Beats is a vehicle for introducing Chicago to itself, an exploration of Chicago’s music, food and culture.
This event is brought to you by Old Town School of Folk Music and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. 77 Beats is the spiritual successor to 2015’s Iron Heart Chicago, which staged 60 concerts by masters of traditional music on L platforms all over the city. Both initiatives are productions of the Old Town School of Folk Music, the largest community school of the arts in the United States.
