“Carpool to Heaven Tour” Stops in Rockford

“Carpool to Heaven Tour” Stops in Rockford

Popular Door County musician Katie Dahl and rising folk star Hope Dunbar (Utica, NE) will perform at The Norwegian in Rockford on Friday, May 10 at 7 p.m. (dinner will be served at 6 p.m.) Their performance at Base Camp will be the second stop on the “Carpool to Heaven Tour,” a ten-day tour across the Midwest. The Norwegian is located at 1402 N. Main St., Rockford. There is a suggested donation of $8 per person.The Shepherd Express wrote of a 2018 performance: “Hope Dunbar… and Katie Dahl showcased their camaraderie. Soaring, sorrowful...enchanting.”Katie Dahl and Hope Dunbar are Midwestern songwriters with loyal fan bases and multiple accolades to their collective credit. Though they normally perform individually, at The Norwegian they will share their songs in an intimate “in-the-round” format, commenting on and adding texture to one another’s work. Dahl and Dunbar are firmly rooted in the folk tradition, with songs that roam freely to explore country, jazz, and rock traditions.Local singer-songwriter Katie Dahl, says the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “combines old-fashioned populism, an abiding love of the land and wickedly smart love songs, all delivered in a rich and expressive alto.” Known for the literate candor of her songs and the easy humor of her live performances, Dahl also has four studio albums and an original musical play, Victory Farm, to her credit. Wisconsin Public Radio calls Dahl “the real deal.”Nebraska-based songwriter Hope Dunbar is fresh off the release of her album “Three Black Crows,” which is receiving critical acclaim and radio play across the country. Houston Music Review writes, “Hailing from Utica, NE, Hope sings loud and proud about real human issues and real light hearted fun. She dispels any claim that intelligence and creativity are unique to large urban centers.”For more information, visit or call 815-329-6191.
