Friday Night Free Concert: David Prickett

Ralph Carlson introduces the Friday Night Concert musicians May 2019.

This week’s Friday Night Concert will be presented by David Prickett of Deerfield, Mo.  The vocal and guitar performance will feature a variety of familiar gospel favorites and favorite country classics.


“Since his first performance in 1962 in Fort Wainwright, Alaska, at the All-Army Talent Show, Prickett is no stranger to the music stage. He later moved to Texarkana where he had several bands and then eventually began doing solo gigs. After returning to Alaska, he and his wife Midge moved to Deerfield in 2005. Prickett has played Good Ol’ Days, Bushwacker Days, churches, healthcare facilities, our Friday night concerts, and many other events,” concert series organizer Ralph Carlson said. “Come out and join us for a fun night to enjoy great music with friends. We’re pleased to welcome David Prickett back to the 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 concert will be moved to the Common Ground Coffee Co., 12 E. Wall Street.
