ARCADIA – Edmond singer-songwriter Fred Hill will present Morning Music on Saturday, Aug. 15, and Whiskey Union will perform during an Elm Tree Concert on Sunday, Aug. 16, at the Arcadia Round Barn.
Hill said his music runs from folk to Americana to country and even the blues. He accompanies himself with guitar and harmonica. He has appeared at Java 39, The Patriarch and Ellis Island in Edmond; the Bluebonnet and Michelangelo’s in Norman; and the Board Room in Guthrie. He has also played at the Taos inn and Black Mesa Winery in Taos, N. M., and at the Norman Music Festival, Music on the Canal in Bricktown, the Paseo Arts Festival and the Made in Oklahoma Festival.
Morning Music is from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Saturday.
Whiskey Union’s lead singer, Melissa Hembree, has been recording and touring the United States since the age of 9. Fellow Oklahoma musician Nellie Clay, who has also appeared at the Round Barn, said Hembree was “born for the stage and embodies feminine strength with a low-toned gutsy presentation of smoke- and whiskey-drenched, heartfelt Okie songs.”
Elm Tree concerts are from 1 to 3 p.m.
All concerts are outdoors beneath the shade of the giant elm tree on the north side of the barn. Admission is free but donations are accepted. Masks and social distancing are required.
The Round Barn is six miles east of Interstate 35 on Historic Route 66. For more information about live music call Joe Baxter at 405-833-1350.
