Prairie in the Bay

Join us in honoring two iconic sisters from Wichita, KS whose music and fine art has left a lasting imprint throughout south central Kansas and beyond.

Carol Denning was a pianist, composer and songwriter who left behind an immense catalog of original music. Each performer will share one of Carol's songs plus some of their original music.

Carol's younger sister Myrna Campbell was a singer and painter who sings the lead on most of the recordings we have of Carol's music, and some of her unique watercolor paintings of native prairie grasses may be for sale at the event.

We are thrilled to have Greg JacobsPamela Parker, and two of Carol's children, Jennifer Jupiter Benorden, of Jupiter and the Pride, and Suzanne Benorden with their cousin Tom Thompson, part of the band Boomchick.

All proceeds will go toward the Fred and Laura Stith Foundation, which our cousin Tom founded to honor our grandparents and the legacy we started as a family of making holiday donations to a family in need.

We can't wait to share some of the art and music from our family at Prairie in the Bay!!
