This week’s Friday Night Concert will be presented by David Prickett of Deerfield, Mo. The concert begins at 7 p.m. at the Heritage Park Pavilion at First and Main streets. The vocal and guitar performance will feature a variety of gospel favorites and country classics.
“Prickett is no stranger to the stage,” Ralph Carlson, event organizer said. “After his first live performance in Fort Wainwright, Alaska, in 1962 at the All-Army Talent Show, he got hooked on music. 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, Mo. in 2005.”
Prickett has played Good Ol’ Days, Bushwacker Days, churches, healthcare facilities, our Friday night concerts, and many other events,”Carlson said. “Join us for the kickoff concert of the season and enjoy some great music. We’re pleased to welcome David Prickett back to the park pavilion.“
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 First United Methodist Church, 301 S. National; enter the lower-level north door.
