This week’s Friday Night Concert will be presented by the Neosho River Boys, a traditional bluegrass band based out of Chanute, Kansas. Ron Oliphant plays banjo and fiddle, Dale Steinman keeps the rhythm on the upright bass, and Scott Sexton sings and plays guitar.
“The band performs much in the style of the earliest bluegrass performers. Their music is heartfelt and real,” concert series organizer Ralph Carlson said. “Come out and join us for a special treat to see friends and hear some great pickin’ and grinnin’. These musicians are no stranger to the stage and are a delight to hear. We are pleased to welcome the Neosho River Boys to our downtown 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 Common Ground Coffee Co., 12 E. Wall Street.
