Heartland Connections is the #1 music destination in the heart of the Midwest! Live Music from all over the world is brought to West Central Illinois at our Bishop Hill, Cambridge and Galva venues, located in Henry County, Illinois! Heartland Connections showcases live music in intimate settings all year long!
A Hotbed for Live Music in the Heart of 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 throughout Henry County. 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! All 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!
