Foxburg hosts art, food, wine
FOXBURG — Singer/songwriter Shane Alexander will kick off the Foxburg fall festival later this month.
The 17th annual Foxburg Art, Food & Wine Festival will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 26 on Main Street.
Alexander will perform “music for the heart and soul” the evening before the festival — at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 25 in Lincoln Hall, 42 S. Palmer St.
He will be presenting songs from all of his albums and some favorite covers, and he also will debut material from recent recordings in the intimate acoustics of Lincoln Hall.
A native of Butler, Alexander resides with his family in Southern California. Since his debut in 2005, he’s toured internationally countless times, both as a headliner and an opener for tours with Jewel, John Hiatt, Seal, Bon Iver, Suzanne Vega, Styx and Yes.
His songs have been featured in over 100 television shows and films. A solo acoustic track about growing up in Butler, recently passed 15 million streams on Spotify.
