On Saturday evening at 6 p.m., bluegrass bands Prairie Creek and Roving Gamblers performed in a fundraiser show for the historic Dixie Theater in Mansfield.
Tickets were $5 and all proceeds went towards the purchase of seating for the Dixie.  Around 60 bluegrass fans came out and enjoyed the evening of good music.
Robert and Becky Walker have been instrumental in the restoration project and worked tirelessly to put this event on.
I would especially like to thank Robert Walker and Bobby Shepherd for always taking care of the sound, which is really important,” stated Becky Walker. “They work very hard at this to get it just right.” Adding, “Thanks for everyone that has helped over the past seven years in getting us where we are today. Whether it be money, materials, working concession, singing and playing, or just being in attendance we appreciate it. We love the feeling when everyone comes together for great fun and fellowship!”
