GC Bluegrass Opry and benefit show for Rachel Kiper


April 15, 2014

The Grayson County Bluegrass Opry will be presenting their monthly show on Saturday, April 19. This show will be a special benefit show, in addition to the bluegrass music performances.

The Bluegrass Opry will be raising money for leukemia patient and local school teacher Rachel Clark Kiper, wife of Jeff Kiper, and daughter of Jamie Clark, to help pay for her medical bills while she is hospitalized and taking treatments in Louisville. Concessions will be sold during the show, and a raffle drawing will also be held. All proceeds will be donated to the Kiper family. The Kiper family is extremely grateful for the donations that have already been made to them, and they especially request everyone’s prayers for Rachel’s recovery from her illness.

The Grayson County Bluegrass Opry show will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will be held in the Old Judicial Building at 125 East White Oak Street behind the Shell Station. Please use the rear entrance of the building and take the elevator to the third floor. There is no admission charge to the show.

Performing bands for the show will include Fresh Cut Grass, from Louisville; Higher Ground, of Bowling Green, featuring local banjo player Randy Saltsman; and the host band, Hickory Grove, of Leitchfield. The Fresh Cut Grass band is a five-piece band that performs both traditional bluegrass and gospel music. The band features Marty Bennett on banjo and Doug Taylor on bass.
