Be prepared for the eight-member family band from Missouri, LINK UINION, to take listeners on an American musical journey when they perform at the Hettinger School auditorium on Monday, May 4, for the last concert of the Dakota Concert Association’s (DCA) 2014-15 season.

The journey goes through the decades, over mountains and across the sea, with classic rock, bluegrass, country, pop, patriotic, spiritual, Celtic, original and mountain music.

Through it all, LINK UNION embraces the roots of American music with old-time musical instruments and stunning vocals, emerging with a fresh, new style.

This multi-award-winning band which has performed over 2000 times in the US and Canada, is composed of a family of eight,   Becky and Lance Link and their children: Rachel, Kyle, Benjamin, Aaron, John and Ashley who, together, use sixteen instruments during each show.

LINK UNION has won numerous group awards including Vocal & Gospel Group of the Year and Bluegrass Album of the Year. In addition, Rachel, Kyle, Benjamin, Aaron and Becky have won individual awards.

D. A. Calloway from Silver Dollar City, says, this young band is “a feast for fans of great music . . . they are destined for success.”

Ken Wood, of the Oakwood Show Committee writes that LINK UNION is “truly musically gifted . . . they entertained from the moment they went on stage until the last note was played.”

Admission to the LINK UNION concert which begins at 7:30 pm MDT is by season ticket. Season tickets for next year, 2015-16, also go on sale that evening and by purchasing next year’s season ticket at the door on May 4, people may attend this season’s last concert for free.
