Music at Moser Series

Joliet, Ill. – The University of St. Francis (USF) welcomes singer/songwriter trios Crooked Tails and The Rebel Eves for “Illinois & Michigan Night,” on Tuesday, November 28, at 7 p.m. as part of the University’s Music at Moser series. The concert will take place in the Sexton Auditorium, which is located on the University’s main campus in Joliet (500 Wilcox Street, Joliet, Ill., 60435).

The concert, showcasing the talented trios’ original songs, stories and harmonies, features Illinois’ Crooked Tails, a collaboration of noted songwriters Brian Motyll, Allison Flood and John Condron, all of whom have enjoyed artistic success and audience popularity with their individual band projects.  Joining Crooked Tails is Michigan trio The Rebel Eves, recently named a “Band to Watch” in their home state. The “Eves” boast award-winning credentials as individual artists. Grace Theisen, from Kalamazoo, won “Best Americana Video” (2022) at the Michigan Music Awards. Ann Arbor-native Katie Pederson’s composition “The Landing” won “Best Country Song” in the International Songwriting Competition (2018), and Jilian Linklater, from Grand Rapids, has amassed more than 5 million Spotify streams of her solo work. Together since 2022, the Rebel Eves have toured extensively during 2023, and next year, will release their first album and be featured showcase performers at the 2024 Folk Alliance International conference in Kansas City.
