Announcing the 38th concert season for Maple Street Concerts. 

Built in the 1870s, we present our concerts in an all wood, American Gothic style chapel on the National Registry of Historic Places.  With an exciting line up of internationally known folk artists and the superior acoustics built into the architecture you have to come hear for yourself.  You can view more information throughout our website and purchase tickets below.           

Due to the tight quarters and older ventilation system we ask that you continue to wear masks for events at the Maple Street Chapel.  Currently the CDC does not have spacing/seating requirements so you attend at your own risk.  

There will be prepackaged snacks,  bottled water and coffee for sale at intermission in Hatfield Hall. 

Tickets available at the door with cash or checks made payable to Maple Street Chapel. We do not have the ability to accept credit cards at the door, however, you can use a credit card to order advance tickets on this website.  If you order tickets using PayPal we do not send out physical tickets. Your name will be on a list at the door along with a copy of your order.

Friddle and Wilkins

Maple Street Chapel, 200 S Main Street, Lombard, IL 60148

Jonas Friddle is a singer, songwriter and Old-Time banjo player whose songs have received The John Lennon Songwriting Award, First Place in the Great American Song Contest and a nomination for Album of the Year in the Independent Music Awards. His tunes bear the marks of a musician who has done his time in pub sessions and square dance halls, and his writing is full of imagery, honesty and humor. When playing with accomplished bassist Andrew Wilkins, the two explore the unusually beautiful and rhythmic combination of double bass and fretless banjo.

“[Friddle] deftly explores just about every nook and cranny of modern folk, from revivalist antique appropriation to protest songs to modern love songs. The immaculate arrangements would sell it, if his lithe voice hadn’t already given it away. Amazing stuff.” - Independent Clauses
