The Courtyard Series gives performers an opportunity to safely show off their talents in Colvin House’s stunning courtyard
One of the busiest blues artists in Chicagoland, Smiley Tillmon is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. There’s an obvious reason why the veteran guitarist’s booking schedule is so jam-packed: Smiley knows how to have a good time and makes sure his audience does too. After 55 years on the local blues scene, Tillmon serves up blues and soul standards that people never seem to stop craving. Performing with Smiley is Chicago bassist Tom Rezetko, keeping the grooves tight and right.
