If your ear for music touches on many genres, then surely you appreciated the music of Al & Susan Schubert, who brought their eclectic mix to First Street Plaza on Wednesday evening in downtown St. Charles.
The crowd might have been a little thin — no doubt influenced by the on-and-off threat of rain and throughout the day — but the skies opened and the sun shone during the couple’s performance, even with the approach of a summer sunset.
Their more than 40 years as musicians — 28 of those in the area — include performances at such noted St Charles and Fox Valley venues as RiverFest, Scarecrow Fest, the Kane County Fair, Hotel Baker, and Friar's Pub.
With Al on guitar and keyboard, and Susan singing harmony and playing small percussion instruments, the couple bring to their stage an impressive array of Al’s own songs (he’s written more than 500) plus covers of popular classics of rock, country, country rock, blues and folk representing such artists as The Eagles, Simon and Garfunkel, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, and many more. You can learn more about them at the website for Al & Susan Schubert.
Earlier in the evening, the Jackal of Juggling entertained at Blue Goose Market, 300 S. 2nd St.
STC Live! brings an array of entertainment to the downtown area on Wednesday and Friday evenings. Jugglers, magicians, musicians and more entertain visitors, hosted by the Downtown St. Charles Partnership.
