Area residents could not have asked for better weather as they attended the recent benefit concert on the Mountain Music Stage at Harbin Hill Farms. Under sunny skies, and amidst the beauty of Doe and Iron Mountains, the Kody Norris Band and the Johnson County JAM kids performed for an audience of nearly 100 people last Saturday.
“This was the second of five planned benefit concerts being held this season,” said Harbin Hills farm owner and concert organizer Richard A. Calkins. “The first benefited the new Johnson County Arts Center.”
Last week’s concert was by no means the end of the outdoor music-filled festivities on The Mountain Music Stage this season. Calkins said that the fun at the farm was far from over as upcoming concerts include many talented musicians to entertain his guests. The next concert featuring the Privette Family Bluegrass Gospel Band is scheduled for Saturday, August 11, in support of the Food Banks operated by First Christian Church and Saint Anthony’s Bread.
Jack Proffit and his Back Roads Bluegrass Band, is also on the scheduled for this month playing on Saturday, August 25, in support of the Johnson County Library’s Building Fund. Steve Dunfee, will be playing on Saturday, September 22, in support of the Flo Bellamy Funds, (Cancer Support and Feed the Kids after School).
