Singer-songwriter Josh Harty to perform Dec. 8

Black Hawk Folk Society’s Second Saturday series will close out 2018 with a concert by singer-songwriter Josh Harty on Saturday, Dec. 8.  His 7 p.m. performance will take place at Mountain View Community Center, located at N3137 21st Lane, at the intersection of 21st Lane and Highway 152, near Mt. Morris and Wautoma.

Music has been a part of Harty’s life since childhood, performing at countless charity events and such with his father. Harty’s professional career was launched one night while he was playing in a cover band and the late B.B. King’s agent happened to be in the audience. He liked Harty’s sound and sent out feelers to see if he’d like to open for the “king of the blues” that following weekend. Harty wrote and rehearsed night and day and was ready with 45 minutes of original music, opening for B.B. King. That was 15 plus years ago and those songs became his first record, “Three Days Notice.”
