Kevin Foster and the Travelers, led by former Bridge Creek football player Kevin Foster, will headline an outdoor concert called Red Dirt for Big Blue to benefit the Bridge Creek football team as it works to overcome the vandalism inflicted on its football fieldhouse earlier this month.

The concert will be held Saturday at Bridge Creek High School. Fans can arrive at 5 p.m. and are encouraged to bring lawn chairs. Admission is $10, and children under 12 are admitted free.

The concert will also include the Nathan Burris Band, along with an acoustic guest. Nathan Burris is originally from Tuttle. The event will have food and children’s activities. No tobacco or alcohol will be allowed.

More than $50,000 in damage was done to the Bridge Creek football facility, weight room, coaches’ offices and locker room, and the majority of their equipment was destroyed the week before practice opened on Aug. 11.
