The Old Town School of Folk Music officially opens its new building at 4545 N. Lincoln Ave. this morning at 10:30am. The brand new facility features dance studios, classrooms, a new performance space, and artwork in the lobby courtesy of R. Crumb. If you can't make the opening ceremony, you'll have plenty of chances to check the new space out, as the school's got a big list of performances, classes, workshops and guided tours happening there.
