Second Saturday Music

I look forward to Second Saturday Music every summer.  My family and I are planning on grabbing a to-go dinner from one of the Downtown eateries before heading over to the park where we'll settle in for a picnic waiting for the music to get started.  It's a fun mid-weekend activity for locals of all ages.  This year's line up looks incredible!  Here's who will be playing:

Saturday, May 14, 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Twin Springs Park
Come hear music from the Gallier Brothers from Springfield, MO. Having performed together fro over twenty years, Les and Gary Gallier are well known and admired among the mountain dulcimer and folk musicians, particularly for their unique playing styles and blend of various music genres.

The Cobb Brothers Bluegrass Band will take the stage. Fifteen year old Caleb Cobb is joined by his younger brothers, Samuel - age fourteen, and twelve year old Nathan. The Cobb Brothers of Mountain View, Arkansas are regular performers at the Ozark Folk Center, entertaining audiences on a variety of stringed instruments, along with vocals and comedy.

Dan Levenson, Pennsylvania native, is a modern-day troubadour in the truest sense. A full-time musician, Dan travels the country with banjo and fiddle singing songs and telling stories of the road, his musical journey and Southern Appalachian roots.

The last concert of the season will feature Missouri musicians, Rick Reding and and the White River Music Company. White River Music Company was started by Rick Reding as an outlet for his original music, and to help other musicians in the Ozark Mountain region to have an outlet for their fine music and song creations. Recently, the band acted and performed in the Robert Redford Sundance film festival's Grand Jury prize-winning Oscar-nominated film, "Winter's Bone."
