Fundraising concert brings back local favorites


Fri, Jan 24th, 2014
Posted in Chatfield Progress Edition

When it comes to seeing your favorite artists in concert you don’t count the cost. Billy Dean will be performing once again in Chatfield, Minn. along with Dan Mahar, both who have become familiar faces in the area.

Billy Dean has proven to be an exciting and touching entertainer as well as a great songwriter with over four million albums sold, five number one songs, and 11 top 10 singles, according to his website, www.billydean.com.

Billy Dean has given his fans songs such as “We Just Disagree,” “Only The Wind,” and of course, “Billy the Kid,” which seems to have become his trademark song. In an interview last year with myself Billy Dean stated he enjoys playing at smaller venues such as Potter Auditorium because “people can hear the words” of the songs and the setting is more personal.

Dan Mahar has also performed in the area several times in the past and connects with his fans in the area. Mahar, a former guitarist with Dean’s band “The Regulators,” left the band in 1995 to create Mahar Music Works. Dan is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and guitar instructor, according to his facebook page, www.facebook.com/danmahar.

According
to Megan Kleven, director of the Chatfield Center for the Arts (CCA), the concert is a fundraiser for CCA to “be able to build up programming and get more and better entertainment for the Chatfield Center for the Arts,” which local residents will certainly applaud.

The concert will be held February 1, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in the Potter Auditorium at the Chatfield Center for the Arts located at 405 S. Main Street in Chatfield.

Tickets are $25 in advance and are available at Root River State Bank, F&M Community Bank, and the city clerk’s office in Chatfield or can be purchased online at www.chatfieldcfa.com. Tickets at the door will be $30. Phone Megan at (507) 867-2927 for more information.
