Betsy & the Frenchman coming to Back Room


Betsy lives in the United States and Pierre lives in France. They met a couple of years ago playing blues, jazz and bluegrass, and decided to become a duet – mixing the Betsy’s beautiful voice and multi-instrumental talents with Pierre’s powerful brand of dobro pickin’. Curious? Come and hear them in the Back Room of the Barton Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Admission is $10. Reservations are encouraged and may be made at the Arts Center, 1401 Main, or by calling 620-792-3097 or e-mailing

This program is presented in part by the Kansas Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is provided by Barton County, the City of Great Bend, and CPI Qualified Plan Consultants, Great Bend.
