The 2020 Round Barn Music Season is drawing to a close this Saturday morning, October 24th, at 11:00AM with a final Saturday Morning Music Session featuring OKC Singer-Songwriter Janice Francis-Smith. Though scheduled programs are ending till the March 2021 time frame, Round Barn Ramblers acoustic music performances are being planned.

More shows will be planned for 2021. The monthly “Round Barn Rendezvous” open format jam will continue to take place, weather permitting, during the ’20-‘21 winter months. Open music jams cannot be moved indoors due to the Coronavirus risk.

Stay tuned to the Facebook Group for Round Barn music updates.

Due to the pandemic, all 2020 music shows at the Round Barn were held outdoors. We are blessed with the beautiful old elm shade tree that provides plenty of shady breezy space for folks who just want to come listen to some MUSIC! Weather cooperated all season. Thanks to a dedicated group of fun and talented musicians, we had wonderful Saturday Morning Music shows every week from March through October.

Several excellent shows were live cast during the Spring shutdown. Schedules were scrambled and rearranged, but great live music got  played all Summer and Fall. Masks were worn and distances were observed. We are truly grateful.

The great folks with the Arcadia Historical & Preservation Society also sponsored Sunday afternoon Elm Tree Shows once or twice monthly during June through September.

In 2020, music audiences were very generous in donating to the Round Barn, and both their gifts and their fine company are greatly appreciated. Audiences were awesome! We sure had fun. Did you?

Thank you all!
