Event details

The final concert in our summer series will feature three talented country music acts from Southeast Kansas: Dustin Treiber, Tim Nowell, and BJ Pruitt and the Barnstormers!

Dustin graduated from Pittsburg State and became a songwriter. He recorded his first album in Nashville, and one of his music videos was a finalist in CMT’s Music City Madness. He performs at area bars, casinos, events, and parties.

Tim Nowell grew up listening to family members play country and folk music around campfires, and after attending Pittsburg State began blazing a path for himself with his guitar. The lead single on his first album made the charts. He became an opening act for major artists and toured through the Midwest as a Country Male Artist of the Year nominee.

By day, BJ Pruitt is the principal at Girard Middle School. In the evenings and weekends, he’s part of BJ Pruitt and the Barnstormers. They play a mix of red dirt, classic country, and rock originals and cover tunes throughout the region. BJ, who attended Pittsburg State, taught himself to play the guitar at age 25 and will share a couple of acoustic tunes.
