The Collins Public Library will feature a free concert by Paul Zittel and Pure Country on Friday evening, June 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. Come for some “Country Music with Hometown Appeal.” If the weather is good, the concert will be outside under the tent with room for dancing, but if it’s rainy, the concert will be inside the library.

The Paul Zittel and Pure Country band has been together for many years and is a recognized country music group in Western New York. Both Paul Zittel, lead vocalist and guitarist, and Dan Gabel, bass guitar player, are from the Collins area. The group is rounded out with Kenny Petersen on steel guitar, and Randy Bolem on drums. They have had the privilege to open shows for some of Nashville’s greatest performers during their tours in Western New York: Brad Paisley and George Jones (Melody Fair), Ricky Skaggs (LaSalle Park), and Charlie Daniels and Aaron Tippin (Cattaraugus County Fair).

The Friends of the Collins Public Library and the Collins Public Library sponsor the monthly concert series. The concerts are free and open to the public, although free will donations are gratefully accepted. For more information, call the Collins Public Library at 532-5129.
