Thursday, October 23rd 2014 - 7:00 pm at Dickinson County Nature Center
2279 170th St

GRAMMY-award nominee Rick Brosseau is planning an intimate evening of music 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, at the Dickinson County Nature Center in Okoboji.
Guitarist and singer Brosseau will be accompanied by conga player Bob Duncan, and they will present an evening of classical guitar and flamenco music with a little pop and Latin jazz thrown in.

Plus, part of the proceeds from the event will go to support the Dickinson County Conservation Board, and Brosseau thinks it is important to give to the board’s mission of educating the public and fostering an appreciation for the environment.
Brosseau was nominated for the prestigious GRAMMY award in 1976 for his vocals on the album “Proud Earth,” a Native American-flavored compilation recorded in Nashville, TN. He also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Hollywood and the Stars in 2000 for his work in music and martial arts.
Tickets cost $20, but only 60 are available for the show. Please call Brosseau at 712-330-5986 to reserve your tickets for this special evening of beautiful music.
