Iowa City musician David Zollo will present an evening of acoustic music at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 24 in the University of Iowa Museum of Art. The performance is free and open to the public.

A musician from a young age, Zollo began playing the piano at age four and founded the quintet High and Lonesome in the early '90s. The band traveled across the Midwest and released three albums in addition to Zollo's first solo endeavor on his own label, Trailer Records, based in Iowa City.

Zollo founded Trailer Records in 1994, and it has now produced more than 25 titles, including albums by Bo Ramsey, Greg Brown, Joe Price and other eastern-Iowa musicians.

The UI Museum of Art, located on North Riverside Drive in Iowa City, is open noon to 10 p.m. Thursdays. Admission is free. Public metered parking is available in UI parking lots west and north of the museum.
