Stone Bank announced plans to sponsor a Veterans Appreciation Concert on
Monday, Nov. 6 at The Jack Williams Veterans Resource Center, commonly
known as Camp Jack. The Center is located at 411 South Pine Street.
A complimentary BBQ dinner will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m. while supplies last and the concert will begin at 6 p.m. The food and concert are free to the public. Seating is limited and will be on a first-come basis.
Ozark Folk Center favorite the Charla Freeland Band will perform.
“The bank has an ongoing partnership with Ozark Highlands Radio and the Ozark Folk Center to aid in promoting roots-based music at the Center and around the state,” said Marnie Oldner, CEO of Stone Bank.
“The group we’re bringing to Harrison is an Ozark Folk Center favorite,” said Daren Dortin, executive producer of Ozark Highlands Radio and music coordinator at the Folk Center.
“Not often do people come together with such instantaneous relational and musical bonds, but this five-piece band is an exception, said Dortin. “All members of the Charla Freeland Band tend to relish the musical style many refer to as ‘up-in-your-face’ or ‘hard-driving’ bluegrass.”
“Throughout performances by this band, you’ll hear primarily hard-driving grass, accompanied by some gospel tunes to share the Good News, and a few old country covers. This past January, The Charla Freeland Band earned second place in the SPBGMA International Band Contest.” (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America.)
The bank sponsored similar events in Mountain View and DeWitt where they also have branch locations. The event is co-sponsored by the Jack Williams Veterans Resource Center.
