Thanksgiving Gospel Concert at Ozark Folk Center State Park

The annual Thanksgiving Gospel Concert at the Ozark Folk Center State Park will feature traditional Gospel favorites from the duo of Pam Setser and Joni Bishop.

The show starts at 7:00 p.m. in the White Oak Theatre. Tickets go on sale Monday, November 2 in the Administration Building at the Ozark Folk Center State Park. All seats are $10.00 general admission and seating is limited to 150 guests.

Pam Setser, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, specializes in the traditional sounds and music of the Ozarks and comes by it honestly. Pam started performing as a child with her parents at the Ozark Folk Center State Park in the early 1970’s. “Crooked Ridge” is Pam’s latest album and features traditional Ozark music with Pam’s distinctive vocal style and instrumentation.

Joni Bishop is a singer/songwriter and artist living in Nashville, Tennessee.  Her vocal and guitar style are reminiscent of many of the early folk, blues and gospel performers she listened to as a young musician. In addition to her skills as a musician, Joni is also an accomplished multi-media artist, presenting her work at galleries across the United States.
“This is a very unique pairing of two talented musicians” says OFCSP Music Director Daren Dortin. “Pam and Joni really work well together and their styles are quite complementary”.
