The biennial Ellnora guitar festival has been bringing amazing guitar music to the area since 2009 (and as the “Wall to Wall guitar festival” since 2005). This year's festival continues that tradition with some of the world's most acclaimed guitarists coming to the Krannert Center September 5th-7th. The Urbana Free Library music collection includes recordings by many Ellnora artists across many genres. Want to hear more of your favorite Ellnora performers? Check them out at The Urbana Free Library! Read more about Ellnora Artists in The UFL Collection

(In the spirit of full disclosure, my husband and I are members of this club, as we own border collies that compete in this sport.) Read more about Border Collies and Sheepherding
