Here is a look at some upcoming concerts.
Events include Chelsea Bain at the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet and Roger McGuinn at the Beverly Arts Center in Chicago.
She will perform Sept. 15 on the Coca-Cola Stage at the Nationwide Dollar General 300 at Chicagoland Speedway, 500 Speedway Blvd., Joliet.
The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based country music performer will return to the venue on Sept. 16 and perform on the Coca-Cola Stage for the Sprint Geico 400.
Fans can listen to Bain’s performance prior to the start of the races, then cheer on the drivers in the Coca-Cola family.
Bain’s latest single is “What If I,” with the B side being “Country Off.”
Fans can hear Bain’s first single, “Rockin’ That Trailer,” at radio and on iTunes. The music video for the song has received more than 1 million views on YouTube.
CMA Close Up magazine also named Bain one of the Who New to Watch 2012 artists, and she’s toured in 2012 with Bucky Covington.
Bain’s forthcoming album, “All-American Country Girl,” is due for release in 2013.
Officials said Bain’s style so unique and alluring among modern country artists, as she frequently combines big rock guitars and textbook rock attitude with her more traditional leanings for a captivating, head-bobbing audio thrill ride encompassing a lifetime of musical influences.
The co-founder of 1960s rock group the Byrds will perform at 8 p.m. Sept. 15 at the Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St., Chicago. Tickets are $28 or $25 for center members.
A Chicago native, McGuinn started his career as a folk musician, studying at the Old Town School of Folk Music and performing on the Chicago music scene and with top entertainers.
Early on, McGuinn worked with the Limeliters, playing guitar and banjo on the group’s recording “Tonight: In Person.” He also performed and/or recorded with the Chad Mitchell Trio, Bobby Darin, Judy Collins and Simon & Garfunkel.
In the early 1960s, McGuinn added a rock beat to his folk repertoire and took his new musical style to Los Angeles. In L.A. he met up with Gene Clark and David Crosby with whom he co-founded the Byrds, one of the most influential bands of the 1960s.
The Byrds recorded the band’s first hit song, “Mr. Tambourine Man,” in 1965 and followed up with a series of hits that include “Turn, Turn, Turn,” “All I Really Want to Do,” and “So You Want to Be a Rock and Roll Star.”
McGuinn was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with the Byrds.
In the 1970s McGuinn pursued a solo career, making five albums for Columbia Records. In 1981 he returned to his folk roots, touring and recording.
His 2002 release, “Treasures from the Folk Den,” was nominated for a Grammy as best traditional folk record and featured duets with Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Odetta
McGuinn’s 2006 recording, “The Folk Den Project,” is a four-CD set that features 100 of his favorite folk songs.
