On Sunday, November 6, the nationally touring group Unspoken will make a stop in Fort Scott to perform at the Danny and Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center.
Larry Davenport said his son has long been interested in music, and recently has had the opportunity to serve as product manager for musical groups out of Nashville. Because of that position, he was able to connect with the Christian artists Unspoken and invite them to Fort Scott.
Davenport said his family had heard the group perform previously and their reaction was: “We’ve got to get these guys to Fort Scott, because I think people would really like them.”
The group, whom Davenport said is probably in the top 15 in the nation for contemporary Christian music, accepted the invitation and will perform Sunday at 6 p.m., arriving in Fort Scott that day after completing performances in Texas. Tickets cost $15 and are already available for sale online (www.itickets.com/events/369099) or at local businesses such as Ruddick’s Furniture, Union State Bank and SEK Financial.
“The ticket sales are off to a really good start,” Davenport said, saying Ruddick’s and USB had already run out and had to get more.
A total of 600 tickets are available and Davenport said tickets are also being sold online to people from other cities such as Chanute and even as far away as St. Louis.
“People are willing to drive to see these guys,” Davenport said, adding he is glad they are able to bring such visitors to Fort Scott when usually they would have to travel to Kansas City for such a concert.
Funds raised through the ticket sales will be donated to the Fort Scott High School and Middle School Fellowship of Christian Athlete organizations and to the Fort Scott Community College Campus Christian members.
Doors will open at 5 p.m. the night of the concert and the performance will also feature the group Carrollton and special guest Tyrus Morgan.
