MILFORD - Get ready for a night of art, blues, and history because on Saturday, March 4 The Columns is hosting a blues benefit concert, followed by an extraordinary art auction. The event will help raise the much needed funds for the replacement of the historical building’s roof. The evening will be titillating to all the senses and filled with Pike County’s very own history! Stimulating souls and ears will be Milford’s very own legendary blue’s man, Bobby Kyle. Acoustically, Bobby will be wailing the sultry sounds of the blues that so many find positively mesmerizing. According to Blues Revue Magazine, “Bobby Kyle may be one of the best…blues singers in the business. Yes, he really is that good and proves it time and again.” Following Bobby Kyle, will be an exquisite art auction, filled with masterpieces donated by many local artists. These masterpieces include historical prints of local attractions by Bruce Frank, “satirical portraits of societal life,” by the creator of the Gibson Girl, Charles Dana Gibson, and many other miscellaneous works of art by local artists. To further entice the senses, a wine and cheese reception will also be served. Tickets to the event of the year are $20 each, and all proceeds will go towards replacing the dilapidated roof of the Columns, which has been preserving Pike County’s history for over two decades. Even though it is the “Last Call For The Blues”, tickets are on sale for this exciting event, but seating is limited. To reserve tickets the 6 p.m. program, please call Lori at 570-296-8126.
