Marti Busbee and Sharon Brooks have tickets for the spring concerts of Northeast Texas Choral Society coming up Saturday night May 3 Sunday afternoon, May 4.  This concert, “Tis a Gift to be Simple” takes a turn from past concerts in celebrating  traditional popular American music. It includes a nice mix of pure Americana including folk favorites like “Turkey in the Straw” and “O, Susanna” to some cowboy and Western music complete with a banjo or a fiddle with a sprinkling of stomps and claps to keep spirits high. There’s something for everyone including my favorite, “Home on the Range.”
Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door for adults, $5 for kids 12 and under. 
 Tickets are good for either concert.
