Traditional Country Fans Respond to Blake Shelton's Insults with Benefit Concert

"We were also very fortunate to get one of the most highly travelled Smithsonian Institution recording artists," Bernie added. "Bob & Sheila Everhart travel the world performing, promoting, and preserving America's great traditional country music. They were just in New Zealand, performing with the New Zealand Symphony. Their songs, and the stories of their songs, inspired the Smithsonian to have them take their show on the road, calling it a 'Traveling Museum of Music.' Bob is president of The National Traditional Country Music Assn., www.ntcma.net and is very disturbed at the slander of Blake Shelton. What a crude and cruel man Mr. Shelton is."

"It's going to be an all-day double-whammy classic country show," Tom added. "Jackie Shewey, known as the 'Pride of the Prairie' will be with us from Nebraska; Rick & Harriette Andersen, noted musicians from Iowa; Lee Muller known as the Kansas Tornado for his strong stand on keeping traditional country music soft, tender, and real. Bob Keim is also coming from the sand-hills of Nebraska to make it a perfect 'old-time' gathering. I think perhaps the one act I am most excited about is one my wife performs with. They are called the Mescher Bones. Bernie, her brother Jerry, and Jerry's wife Sharon, all play two-handed bones. So capable is their work preserving this oldest form of percussion sound, they were written up as a PHD thesis by a professor from Ireland. Jerry Mescher was on the Ted Mack show, a winner, performing with his father Albert."

The German-American Club in Miami is located at 11919 SW 56th St. 10-person tables can be reserved by calling Bernie Worrell directly at 305-342-6795. The program will begin shortly after noon on February 23rd, with two shows offered. Food and beverages are available at the club.
