PRINCETON — Phil Kaufmann Family and Friends will share songs and stories of the Christmas season in a free concert at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, at the Prairie Arts Center, 24 Park Ave. East in Princeton.

The Kaufmanns are known for their folk and faith-filled music, including performances at the Princeton Coffeehouse. Phil Kaufmann, who grew up in a musical farm family in Bureau County, has raised more than $125,000 in recent years for hunger relief through his one-man shows of The Cotton Patch Gospel, a musical retelling of the gospels of Matthew and John.

The free concert is sponsored by Princeton’s Prairie Arts Council and is funded in part through Omni Arts and the Illinois Arts Council. There will also be a free-will donation at the door.
