The McCord Gallery and Cultural Center will host Bernie Glim and Country Roads Band at this year’s annual B &W fundraiser, “Little Bit Country,” Oct. 5 at Willowbrook Ballroom, 8900 S. Archer Ave., Willow Springs.
Live and silent auctions will be included.
The event is McCord’s major fundraiser and keeps the McCord House open as a welcoming home for the arts.
A seven-piece band of musicians and songwriters, Bernie Glim and CRB’s latest release, “Playin’ to Win,” was voted No. 7 of the Top 10 regional CDs.
In addition to their original music, their song list includes music from Johnny Cash to Garth Brooks to Blake Shelton and others.
Joel Daly, retired ABC 7 newscaster, will be McCord’s guest of honor. Daly also has a love of country music and performed with the country band The Sundowners, playing guitar, singing and yodeling.
