Friday Free Concert for August 5: Neosho River Boys

Ralph Carlson introduces the Friday Night Concert musicians May 2019.

This week’s Friday Night Concert will be presented by the Neosho River Boys, a traditional bluegrass band based out of Chanute, Kansas. Ron Oliphant plays banjo and fiddle, Dale Steinman keeps the rhythm on the upright bass, and Scott Sexton sings and plays guitar.


“The band performs much in the style of the earliest bluegrass performers. Their music is heartfelt and real,”  concert series organizer Ralph Carlson said. “Come out and join us for a special treat to see friends and hear some great pickin’ and grinnin’. These musicians are no stranger to the Fort Scott stage and are a delight to hear. We are pleased to welcome the Neosho River Boys to our downtown park pavilion.“


The one-hour concert begins at 7 p.m. at the Heritage Park Pavilion at First and Main streets. The shows, sponsored by the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce, are free and open to the public. Dave Oas and Jim Butler provide the sound each week. Due to limited seating, attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.

In the event of inclement weather, the Neosho River Boys concert will be moved to the Fort Scott Community College Round Room.
