[ARCHIVED] Virtual Concert-Classic Country Night

Kevin Horton

Join us for a virtual concert!

Join Rock Island Parks & Recreation for a free Facebook Live Virtual Concert on Thursday, May 21st at 7:00 pm featuring a Classical Country Night theme from Kevin Horton. “After an amazing first concert from Kevin, we had so many requests to have him back again. During our first concert he was able to show us his wide range of vocal and guitar abilities. Many asked for a Country night, so we are delivering that to our valued listeners during our May Concert. We will also be taking donations for the Youth Scholarship Fund through the Rock Island Parks Foundation. During April, we raised over $1,000 for youth in our community and would like to continue to build on that success,” says Dan Gleason, Special Event Manager.

Guitarist and singer, Kevin Horton, started playing at the age of seven with his dad. The bulk of his time was playing with Southern Thunder and the Wilson Brothers Band in the Quad Cities. He has also opened for Johnny Cash, Randy Travis, Roger Miller, Bobby Bare & Mickey Gilley to name a few.

This Virtual Concert will be streamed live on the Rock Island Parks and Recreation Facebook page at The concert is free, however virtual donations will be accepted to benefit the Rock Island Parks and Recreation Foundation’s youth scholarship fund, to help youth participate in sports, summer camps, and programming through the Rock Island Parks and Recreation Department.
