Jerry will once again return to the CAST Theatre for a festive Country Music Christmas performance. Fresh off of the release of his new CD “It All comes Back To Me”, Jerry is excited about this year’s show: “I’m really looking forward to the Christmas show this year” he said. “After having to cancel last year’s show, I can’t wait to see all the folks who come to CAST to celebrate the season with me!”.
Once again this year Jerry’s show will feature the incredible voice of Brenda Weber, as well as Mark Kos on acoustic guitar, and a new addition to the show Kathie Ann Pearcy. “Kathie Ann has been playing keyboard and piano with me for the past few years, and I her asked her to join us for the show. I think the folks will enjoy the songs she’ll be singing”.
In addition to the traditional Christmas favorites like Winter Wonderland, Joy To the World, Away In A Manger, O’ Little Town of Bethlehem, and others, Jerry will be singing a song titled Unknown Soldier that is featured on his new CD. “Unknown Soldier is a heart-felt tribute to our military and fallen heroes” Jerry stated. “It’s my small way of saying ‘Thank you’ to all the men and women who have bravely served and sacrificed for our country”.
There will be prizes given away throughout the show to anyone who brings some non-perishable food items to donate to the Clearfield/Curwensville Ministerium food bank, and raffle tickets will be sold for the chance to win a guitar that will be autographed by Jerry and the gang. The proceeds from the guitar raffle will be donated to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund. The Freedom Alliance was founded by Col.
