Country Music Show to bring local, area talent

NEDERLAND — The ticket price for Nederland Heritage Festival’s Country Music Show hasn’t been raised in 28 years and that’s a fact that pleases Alton “Boo” Hollier.

“A family of four can see the show for $16 if they buy advance tickets,” Hollier said.

The Country Music Show is set for 7 p.m. Saturday at Central Middle School in Nederland. Tickets are $4 in advance and $5 at the door. Tickets are sold at the NHF office on Boston Avenue and at the Candle Cottage.

Skeeter Jones and the Beer Can Band will be the house band this year and 20 entertainers from across the area will light up the stage.

Hollier said in past years they’ve had 10 entertainers who performed two songs each but that will be changed this year to make space for more talent to take the stage.

“Instead of having each one perform two songs we’ll have them perform one song,” he said thus the reason for 20 entertainers this year.

Scheduled performers include talent such as Piper Meeks, Shanna Ferro, Mike Tobias and Brintney Reynolds.

Peace, Love, Nederland is the theme of this year’s festival. The festival is set for March 12 through March 17 along Boston Avenue in Nederland. For more information, call the NHF office at 724-2269.
