OAKHURST – Once again the spirit of Christmas will be ushered in, cowboy style, at Oakhurst Lutheran.
A special Cowboy Christmas concert will be held on Sunday, Dec. 2, with two performances; the first at 2 p.m and another at 6 p.m.
The Cowboy Band of Tim Johnson, Keith Johnson, Arnie Johnson, Cliff Neufeld and Eddie Guzman will be joined with special guests like Bobby Black and saxophonist Maynard Williams.
Tim Johnson played with the Sons of the San Joaquin — Jack, Joe, Lon and Bill Thornbury — as fiddler, from 2000 to 2007. Tim received the WMA instrumentalist of the year award in 2007 upon the release of his solo fiddle album “American Fiddler.”
Bobby Black is a world-renowned master of the pedal steel and lap steel guitar who was inducted into The Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in 2004. He has performed with, to name a few, Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen, Barbara Mandrell, Dolly Parton, Merle Travis, The Coasters, Mel Carter, and many, many more.
Tim has a new Christmas album which will be available for purchase. There will be a maximum seating of 140 for each performance with pre-sold tickets for the Cowboy Christmas at a suggested $20 donation.
