New River Community and Technical College is hosting a free acoustic blues concert featuring local musicians, James Hart and Melissa McKinney, from 12:15 - 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31 at New River CTC's Mercer County Campus.
Originally planned as a Black History Month event that was canceled due to inclement weather, the concert remains an opportunity for community members to visit New River CTC's campus located at 1001 Mercer Street (former offices of First Community Bank) in Princeton, W.Va. Light refreshments will be served.
