Waymart Enjoys Country Concert
December 15, 2019 12:00 AM
Nashville country artist and Camp Hill native Ben Gallaher treated SCI Waymart inmates to an acoustic country performance. This concert was even bigger than last year—when sign-up posters went out for this concert the request flew in like wildfire. With more than 140 inmates attending and nearing capacity, this concert has become one of the biggest draws for inmates. Activities Manager Troy Walsh brought Ben Gallaher back this year due to the high numbers last year, and the great responses he has heard the past year about Gallaher's performances.
Last year was Gallaher's first performance Waymart; in 2013, he entered into SCI Camp Hill to perform as an up-and-upcoming artist. When word got out to all the other institutions' activities departments, he began performing at more and more institutions. His "barbed" tour, as it is now called, has Gallaher touring many of the SCI's. Even as he is now a Sony recording artist, he still likes to come into the SCI's and put on these concerts for the inmate population. Walsh and the activities department here at Waymart look forward to bringing him back next year.
