Channeling their inner Patsy Cline, Cassie & The Bobs will perform a free concert on the Douglas County Courthouse lawn in Alexandria on Thursday, Aug. 3.

The local band recreates Cline's music from the early 1960s, a time when she dominated country singing. Rolling Stone magazine named her No. 46 in its list of the top 100 greatest singers of all time.

The concert starts at 7 p.m. and is the 11th in a series of weekly performances scheduled throughout the summer. Organized by The Red Willow Arts Coalition, the free concerts are sponsored by Anderson Funeral Home and Elden's Fresh Foods as well as nightly sponsors. Thursday's music is sponsored by the Echo Press.

This is the seventh season for "Concerts on the Courthouse Lawn." Red Willow encourages concert-goers to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Proceeds from popcorn sales will support a new playground for Miltona Science Magnet School.
