Praise concert features bluegrass/country artist
POLO – Nationally known, award-winning singer-songwriter Jimmy Jack Whitaker, a frequent performer in the Sauk Valley, is bringing his bluegrass and country style of praise music Sunday to Faith Discovery Church.
The fourth annual Praise Concert, which begins at 5 p.m. at the church at 801 W. Oregon St., will include hymns, patriotic songs, Christian biker songs and nationally popular songs. Whitaker also will bring his trademark satirical humor to the storytelling that punctuates his music.
