Carolyn Tucker Presents “Music of a Lifetime” Concert


This week the Friday Night Free Concert in Fort Scott will be indoors.

Carolyn Tucker will present her “Music of a Lifetime” concert on Friday, June 23, 7:00 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 308 S. Crawford Street.


The evening will feature some of the gospel music that has impacted Carolyn’s life. The selections will be both piano and vocal, including three piano solos. The music will feature camp-meeting songs such as, “This World is Not My Home,“ beloved hymns, spirituals, southern-gospel classics by songwriter Dottie Rambo, and one original song, “His Sweet Love.”


“Carolyn ‘cut her teeth’ on the music of the church and southern gospel,” concert-series organizer Ralph Carlson said. “Coming from a long line of musicians on her mother’s side, as a young child, she consistently begged her parents for a piano and they soon complied. She began studying piano at the age of nine and quickly discovered that she could also play by ear. Years later, her father affirmed that buying a new piano for his daughter was the best investment he ever made. She has a lifetime of involvement playing and singing for church, funerals, weddings, concerts, retirement facilities, and other venues.”


Dave Oas and Jim Butler provide the sound. The public is invited and encouraged to attend the event complete with comfortable seating and air-conditioning. The one-hour free concert is sponsored by the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce.
