Local Concert to Keep our Historic 10th Street Bridge Up

Posted: Updated:

The Celtic Cowboy has been home to many events during it's short existence after opening in the last year. However, it is now home to a sidewalk concert that will help keep one of our structures intact for future generations. This year the Celtic Cowboy has gotten very involved with the community in the electric city. The most recent is a brand new event during the summer called the sidewalk concert.

"So it just kind of played together when we played the farmers markets and the bridge group got involved as well. so it all kind of worked together and it worked out great for us," explains Teresa Loftus with the Celtic Cowboy.

The concert, while great to listen to also serves a more meaningful purpose. To help us keep and restore our historic 10th street bridge.

"This is going to restore the historic 10th street bridge across the Missouri river. it was built in 1920 and its the only architecturally designed concrete arched bridge of this part of the country," says Preservation Cascade member, Arlyne Reichert.

The preservation cascade committee and the musicians are very grateful to the Celtic Cowboy for giving them enough space to be a full band every week.

"No limit on space, we used to play the farmers market, but we had limited area where we could handle maybe 2 or 3 musicians. Now we can handle a whole sidewalk," says Reichert.

In fact preservation cascade want to invite as many folk musicians out as they can to come join in on the fun.

"Anyone who plays bluegrass or folk is welcome to come on Saturday mornings between 9:30 AM and noon, bring your instruments and play," says Reichert.
