A Hotbed For Intimate Music Experiences In the Midwest!
Heartland Connections is a venture formed from the idea that music is a vehicle that elevates our communities socially, culturally, and economically. Located in the heart of “Corn Country” we are just an hour drive from the Quad Cities and Peoria. Show venues are located in Bishop Hill, Cambridge & Galva, Illinois. Performers come from all over the region, nation and the world, to perform for you in our intimate and unique atmosphere. In fact, it is not uncommon for our venues to be the only place you can experience an artist outside of large stadiums or theaters! Many of our shows are family friendly and are either free or by donation, with those donations going directly to the artists themselves. Prior to many shows, there is a community potluck where people bring & share food and drink. Everyone is welcome to bring their own snacks and beverages of choice to our shows. Most of our shows are also streamed live on Facebook or Youtube so you don’t have to miss any of the amazing artists. Besides the entertainment we provide, we work with other local music series and arts groups as well. Please feel free to explore our website and we hope to see you at a show soon!
