(Cushing, Okla.)  Red Dirt Ranger’s John Cooper will welcome special guest musician Don Conoscenti at the Fourth Thursday music event at the Cushing Country Club, Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013 at 7 p.m.  This concert is open to the public – cover charge $5 and no charge to Cushing Country Club members.

*Singer-songwriter Don Conoscenti hails from Chicago and became known for his unique use of multiple and partial capos on the acoustic guitar.  He has played with many notable musicians, including Kristian Bush, David Wilcox, Ellis Paul, John Mayer and The Indigo Girls. 

Conoscenti was a winner of the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriting Competition and was a National Academy of Songwriters’ Acoustic Artist of the Year finalist.  He has been a regular at the Woody Guthrie Folk festival since its inception in 1998.

In her review of the 2011 Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, Jela Webb described Conoscenti as “one of the most underrated and under-appreciated musicians; his own body of work deserves much greater recognition.”*

This is certainly yet another evening of great music you will not want to miss!
