Jake Jenkins benefit show in Texas

Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show are giving a special performance in Lubbock, TX on April 22 as a benefit for the family of Jake Jenkins.

Jake, a former member of Big Country Show, was killed late last month when his vintage airplane crashed shortly after takeoff. He leaves behind a wife and three young children.

The concert will be held at The Cactus Theater (1812 Buddy Holly Ave., Lubbock, TX), with Travers Chandler & Avery County opening the show.

Anyone who is unable to attend, but would like to make a donation in support of Jake’s family, can send a check to:

Benefit Account for Jake Jenkins’ children
c/o Rockdale Federal Credit Union
1812 W. Cameron
Rockdale, TX 76567

Jake was only 40 years old when he passed, and his children also lost their Jenkins grandparents in the crash. He was a fine man as well as a terrific banjo player.
