"The Dakota Opry" opens Gayville Hall's new season
Gayville Hall ends its annual winter hiatus with the start of its seventh season on Saturday, March 10, at 8 p.m. in Gayville.

The alcohol-and-smoke-free music hall reprises its country music show, "The Dakota Opry," which debuted at the hall in 2004.

The show is led by John and Susan McNeill of Springfield, the regular musical hosts at Gayville Hall. A prolific writer of cowboy and country tunes, John created the hall's tributes to Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.


Wakonda fiddler Owen DeJong and his Poker Alice Band partner Nick Schwebach on steel and lead guitars will also perform. They regularly appear in Gayville Hall country music shows.

Daniel Kilbride, a Wakonda native from Sioux Falls who plays with Clay County Breakdown, will demonstrate his musical virtuosity on banjo and country humor. Singer Cathy Harts of Mission Hill will also perform.

Other shows set for Gayville Hall's seventh season include "A Celebration of Hank Williams" on March 31, the Poker Alice Band with country singer Brenda George on April 14, Clay County Breakdown and the McNeills in concert on April 21, and "A Celebration of Johnny Cash" on May 5.

Gayville Hall is located at 502 Washington Street in Gayville. Tickets are $10 at the door or $12.50 for a reserved seat. Call 605-267-2859.
