IRON MOUNTAIN - Mark Young and John Richtig will be performing "Country Classics" at downtown Iron Mountain's popular "Out to Lunch" program Thursday.
"Richtig and Young never disappoint," said co-chairperson Joan Flood.
"This year, we digress from classic rock, folk, and folk-rock, and put together an entire show of classic 60's and 70's country. We'll be doing songs from the late Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, and Marty Robbins, and also other living legends like Glen Campbell, Ronnie Milsap, John Conlee, Kenny Rogers and more," Young said.
Area residents enjoy a 2010 Out to Lunch program in downtown Iron Mountain. The popular music series starts its 10th year on Thursday.
