Great Kansas Day Shows
We completed 8 KS Day shows on Monday, just before the big snow storm.
There are great folks in Kansas. The Santa Fe Trail Center at Larned Saturday night was a terrific crowd,
a full house, and just great folks - also the center is a great museum, well worth a visit.

in Junction City were very good to perform at, the kids really "got into" the music and KS history.
We finished up with appearances at the 1st Christian Church in Erie, and the school in Erie the following day.
Once again, great folks and students interested in our great state of Kansas. I always learn something new
about Kansas at each of our performances.
