Chicago's youth folk bands; celebrating 10 years of creating performance and social music opportunities for musicians of all ages.
We are the Young Stracke All-Stars; a group of youth musicians in Chicago who celebrate the legacy of early television star, musician and music education innovator, Win Stracke. 2018 sees the band celebrating 10 years of building bridges between youth and master musicians and creating performance and social music opportunities for musicians of all ages.
In the past 10 years they have graced the stage of Chicago’s Millennium Park, performed with legends like Ella Jenkins, Dan Zanes and Nora Guthrie. As part of that work we've taken our instruments off off shoulders and handed them to countless young people; sitting and singing side by side with the beginning musicians and working to inspire the next generation of music makers.
