ARCADIA – Cushing musician Michael Music and the Tulsa band, “And Then There Were Two,” will bring live music to the Arcadia Round Barn the first weekend in June.
Music will present an outdoor Morning Music Session from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, June 6, on the north side of the barn beneath the shade of the giant elm tree. Music started his career at age 9 with a $12 guitar his parents bought for him at a Gulf Mart in Tulsa. He said his musical influences included his father, who played classic country songs in the era of Merle Haggard, George Jones and Johnny Cash, and his grandmother, Lois, “who left a powerful impression on me about the inward power and soul of music.”
“And Then There were Two,” an acoustic Americana and Red Dirt band, will present an Elm Tree concert from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 7.
The band is made up of Bobby C. Ward, Chad Varnell, Austin K. Haworth and Amy Carlin Lee. Raised on multiple styles of music, each member brings a unique flair to the overall sound of each harmony-based and lyrically-driven performance.
The loft and restrooms of the Round Barn are now open every Friday through Monday, with outdoor concerts every weekend. Board members of the Arcadia Historical and Preservation Society are working toward a safe re-opening of the downstairs museum after closing it in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The barn is located six miles east of Interstate 35 on Historic Route 66. For more information about live music, call Oklahoma City singer-songwriter Joe Baxter at 405-833-1350.
