47 miles from Chicago, Woodstock is on the edge of the Chicago metropolitan area. We’re close to the city with a small town, rural personality all our own.
Rich with Victorian architecture, a town square that seems frozen in time, and a world-renowned Opera House, Woodstock also has an independent streak brimming with creativity and entrepreneurship. Artists and locally-owned businesses are embraced. Our school system is a leader in dual language education. And music, whether rock, folk, jazz, country or classical, fills the air indoors and out most every night.

A four-time Grammy Award winner, Webb is also the Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Vice Chair of ASCAP, and a recipient of the prestigious Johnny Mercer and Ivor Novella International awards. The illustrious songwriter continues to charm audiences with his music and storytelling, full of humor, humility and warmth, about how as a 16-year-old former farm boy he found himself a star in Hollywood surrounded by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Glen Campbell, and Elvis.
Webb’s songs have been recorded by Glen Campbell, Frank Sinatra, Linda Ronstadt, Art Garfunkel, Johnny Cash, James Taylor, Barbra Streisand, Michael Feinstein, R.E.M., Josh Groban, and Donna Summer.
