Hillbilly Days Presents: The Kevin Prater Band

This event has been cancelled due to precautions pertaining to COVID-19.

Celebrating 36 years of Kevin Prater helping Shriners help kids, the Kevin Prater band will be hosting the Hillbilly Days Pike County Courthouse Bluegrass Stage April 16, 17 and 18, 2020.

The Kevin Prater Band bases their sound on strong vocal harmonies.  Built around high trios, their style is reminiscent of the classic Seldom Scene and 1970’s Country Gentlemen performances. They are steeped in the tradition of Gospel music and pride themselves on the a cappella hymns and great gospel songs that people have come to enjoy. The band includes classic country in their repertoire and loves bringing old familiar favorites to life.
