The evenings entertainment began with Kaylee Keller and her guitarist, Brody Caster. Kaylee sang a variety of songs by Country Music artists that she admires. Her guitarist sang original songs the he had written, also giving insight into what had prompted him to write these songs and what they meant to him. The two switched back and forth between Kaylee and Brody, which made for some lively entertainment as a small crowd began together.
Then Duffy MaGee took to the stage. The crowd swelled as they played one original blue grass number after another. They even injected some cover tunes into their set as well. The novelty of guitar, bass, banjo and washboard was just to irresistible. Generally the crowd will begin to drift away as the night begins to grow dusky, but on this night, the crowd wasn't leaving until the final chords were played. Even after the band had done an encore and finally told the crowd they were done for the evening, the crowd stayed around a while just in case some more music broke out.
CFTC has their biggest crowd on The Plaza since the McPherson series began. There were even a couple of hardy souls sitting on the roof of the Warren Building across the street. Who knew that McPherson was in love with Bluegrass music. This benefit netted the largest amount raised by a charity, so far in McPherson.
Only two more concerts remain for the McPherson season of CFTC. If you haven't come out to see what all the fuss is about, join CFTC on The Plaza this coming Thursday night. Supper is available for a donation to a local charity, you'll see many of your friends and neighbors there, it's a fun and enjoyable evening with live local music. All CFTC events are family friendly. Stop by The Plaza in McPherson and check out what everyone in town is talking about.
