June 5th – Bob and Sheila Everhart – “How Western Music Won the West”
On June 5th at 7pm we will be hosting a free concert featuring Bob and Sheila Everhart who will perform their “How Western Music Won The West” program. Bob and Sheila have been performing old-time and traditional acoustic music in the “Oh Brother Where Art Thou” style for all 26 years of their married life. This will be an entertaining musical program of the very earliest cowboy and western songs along with the unusual stories associated with them. Not only the songs themselves, but the writers and singers of them. It is fascinating, historical, entertaining and educational. Just right for an audience to be entertained and have a good time. From the earliest cowboy singers right up to the days of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. Sure to be a memory adventure for us all. Mark your calendars and bring your lawn chairs to the west side of the Knight Museum & Sandhills Center. If Mother Nature decides otherwise, we will move the concert into the museum gallery. Hope to see you there!!

July 2nd – 10th – Traveling Photo Memorial – “Remembering Our Fallen”
July 2nd – 10th we will be hosting the Nebraska traveling photo memorial “Remembering Our Fallen”. Bill & Evonne Williams of Omaha, NE were inspired to create this exhibit in the fall of 2010. The inspiration for this project came after reading a story in the Omaha World-Herald about a father whose pain and grief were even greater four years after his son, SGT Joshua Ford, died in Iraq. The Williams’ eternal hope is to honor the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, to provide comfort to friends and family of the Fallen and to remind others of the tremendous cost paid by some. Its legacy will be that these men and women will never be forgotten, and that their names will be remembered. This memorial includes photos of the Fallen who died in The War on Terror since September 11, 2001, and called Nebraska home.
