Carbondale Community Arts continues Sandwiches & Strings, its lunchtime acoustic music series with a performance at noon Thursday, Nov. 21, at Artspace 304.

Concert-goers are encouraged to bring a lunch to eat while listening to live acoustic entertainment from noon to 1 p.m. in the gallery at 304 W. Walnut St.

So-called cowboy poet Jacob Schwarm will perform poetry and guitar, and Ken Wollberg will play fiddle.

Schwarm was born into "cowboy life," according to a news release from CCA, raised on his family's horse farms in Kentucky and Illinois. He and his father, Mark, together present workshops and clinics in thoroughbred horsemanship.

Along with his guitar music, Schwarm performs traditional cowboy poetry, similar to what one might hear around campfires.

Ken Wollberg is the director of Heart Strings Violin Studio in Carbondale, and performs with the Paducah and Southern Illinois symphonies. He's also the co-director of the Sandwiches & Strings concert series.
