Elm Tree Concert coming up at Arcadia Round Barn

Middle Sister, Robin Brooks and Susan Pierce

ARCADIA – The singer-songwriting duo “Middle Sister” will present an Elm Tree Concert from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 16, at the Arcadia Round Barn.

Robin Brooks and Susan Pierce first started performing together as music majors at Oklahoma City University. They continued in varied careers while raising families, and when they reconnected in 2019, they realized they were both writing original songs. They decided to team up, and the result is a distinctive blend spotlighting vocal harmonies, diverse instruments and imaginative lyricism.

The Elm Tree Concerts are held outdoors beneath the shade of the giant elm tree on the north side of the Round Barn, where parking is handicap accessible. Guests can bring a lawn chair or sit at the picnic tables. Admission is free but donations are accepted.

The Round Barn is six miles east of Interstate 35 on Historic Route 66 and is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The weekly music schedule also includes acoustic concerts by the Round Barn Ramblers, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday in the downstairs museum.

For more information about music at the barn, call Joe Baxter at (405) 833-1350. To volunteer, call Kimberly Burk at (405) 651-0240.
