The annual Ozarks Celebration Festival to celebrate the cultural heritage of the Ozarks concluded yesterday here at Missouri State University. Next Friday Sept.24 at 8:00pm at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts there's a benefit concert for the Festival. Funding for the annual festival has been compromised in this tough economy, and the concert next Friday will help raise money for next year's Ozarks Celebration Festival. The musical lineup includes Beyond Reach, featuring two founding members of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils--Randall Chowning and Larry Lee--along with Ned Wilkinson and David Wilson. Wilson is also part of the Undergrass Boys along with Bo Brown, George Horn and John Kendrick, and they'll headline next Friday's concert. Tickets are $15, or $25 for Gold Circle tickets which include an after-concert reception with the performers. For tickets call 836-7678 or toll-free 1(888) 476-7849, or visit www.missouristatetix.com.
