Country Singer Performing at DeMoulin Museum

Country singer Jamie Nattier to perform at DeMoulin Museum (June 15, 2019) - The DeMoulin Museum is hosting a free concert Saturday, June 29 at 6 p.m. by Jamie Nattier, a traditional country singer.
  Raised on his family's farm in Patoka, Illinois, Jamie is the son of a son of a farmer and a teacher. Growing up Jamie was surrounded by horses, cows, grain, and oil fields. A strong family foundation inspired him with an exceptional work ethic and strong academic values. He graduated from Patoka High School in 2008 and later earned an Associate's Degree from nearby Kaskaskia College.
  His earliest performances were for 4-H and church events. Soon however, he began performing for local opry shows. When area bands realized his potential, they invited this young man to play along with them even though he was many years younger than most.
  Jamie wrote his first song when he was fifteen. To hone his talents, he started attending several workshops, began co-writing, recording his songs, and making CDs. He has played and hosted numerous open mic nights. Jamie has performed at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield and Du Quoin. Jamie has also performed in Pigeon Forge, TN, and on many stages in Nashville such as The Bluebird Cafe and Tootsies as well as getting to sing at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
  Jamie assists his dad on the family farm and is also a rural mail carrier for the United States Postal Service. Jamie has been working on a new CD which he hopes to have released this fall. Jamie resides in rural Kell with his wife, Cassie, his two beagles, and a basset hound.
  John Goldsmith, DeMoulin Museum curator, says concert-goers will enjoy the show. “I first met Jaime years ago when I emceed the Country Showdown competition and he was a contestant. His talent as a singer and songwriter were evident back then. Anyone who appreciates real country music will love the concert.”
  This is the latest in a series of free concerts held at the DeMoulin Museum, located at 205 S. Prairie St. in Greenville. You are encouraged to bring your lawn chair. Free popcorn and drinks will be available. The museum will also be open for tours. For more information about the museum, call (618) 664-4115 or visit www.demoulinmuseum.org.
