Friday Night Free Concert: The Hemphills

Ralph Carlson introduces the Friday Night Concert musicians .

This week’s Friday Night Concert will be presented by local family musicians, The Hemphills. Jack Hemphill plays keys, wife Sandy plays violin, mandolin, guitar, saxophone, and keys. Son Brad joins in with lead, rhythm, and bass guitars, and daughter Kristen Weeks ties the band together on the drums. All the members are vocalists and will perform a variety of music including classic country and 70s pop classics.


“The Hemphills are a great family to work with and have a tight sound,“ concert-series organizer Ralph Carlson said. “We are pleased to welcome these talented, fun, and heartwarming musicians back to the park pavilion. Floyd Feezell, Fort Scott, will also sing some familiar tunes.  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 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 or extreme heat, the concert will be moved to the Loading Dock at Common Ground Coffee Co., 12 E. Wall Street.
