While Old Town School of Folk Music is not normally a tourist destination, lacking a museum, galleries, etc., it is the center of independent folk music in Chicago. True to the name the school offers programs for all age and talent levels. In the evenings the stages are turned over to some of the best folk music talent in North America. Pre- or Post visit spend some time along North Lincoln Avenue’s stores, old German restaurants, and galleries.
From downtown, take the CTA El’s Brown Line to Western Station. The site is located about 0.2 miles away.
