Just a brief note, I along with my wife Peg are members of The Custer Area Arts Council and appreciate all the work they do on these concerts. The musicians are paid to perform so, the concerts are free. If you would like to tip the musicians, please do, there is a bucket on a table where you can show your appreciation. What we are, and always have been against at a free concert. is someone grabbing a microphone pleading for money and shoving a donations bucket in your face. This was done at the June 14 Ray Hadlock and Pegie Douglas concert and I was embarrassed for the community. I did not stay for the end of tonight’s concert but enjoyed the music and watched the people come in off the street and enjoy the FREE CONCERT. The Custer Arts Council will have a donation bucket at its information table. Again, this is a free, no obligation event.
