Was wondering about an event I heard coming up at the Municipal Auditorium. A Hal Sutton fund raiser where James Burton, Kevin Costner and others will perform in a jam fest. Would you happen to know when this is and maybe the cost to see it?

Thanks for asking, Phyllis. I head that same news at Brookshires in the sliced meat section. Please see above for more on Costner's rock n roll show.
