Friday Night Free Concert: Rick Hite

Ralph Carlson introduces the Friday Night Concert musicians May 2019.

This week’s Friday Night Concert, Sept. 3, will be presented by Rick Hite of Fort Scott. Hite sings and plays guitar and mandolin, and performs a variety of music from the 1940s, 50s, 60s, including contemporary songs in country, bluegrass, and gospel stylings.

Hite began singing in church as a youngster at age five and has been playing guitar since age nine,” concert-series organizer Ralph Carlson said. “We really appreciate his willingness to return to the park pavilion and entertain our loyal crowd. Come out and join your friends for an enjoyable evening.”

The 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 of Parsons serves as sound technician 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.

  1. I grew up in Fort Scott and even though I’ve not lived there since 1971, I still have a sister who lives near Kansas City, Mo. So twice a year I come up to spend a few days with her and we always spend he better part of a day in Fort Scott reminiscing. I was wondering if you have a list of entertainers who are scheduled to sing, etc. during the next few months.
