Black Oak Concert
A scheduling issue in Pekin has resulted in a Southern Gospel bonanza for the Beardstown area music fans.
Spokesman Randy Burnett explains, “A change of dates in Pekin created an opening on Saturday, Feb. 11. That’s the date of Black Oak’s regular monthly sing, so we ‘tagged’ SHSS concert onto that date. The potluck/soup supper begins at 5 p.m. The open mic singing (your local and area favorites) will begin a little earlier than usual, about 5:30 p.m., and the concert at 7 p.m.”
