Old Time Music Festival, West plains

Marideth Sisco and the Davis Creek Rounders will perform at the Old Time Music Festival in West Plains Missouri on Friday June 18 at 2 p.m. That scheduled time might be kinda loose … there are a lot of other great performers to present also so bring your lawn chair and a tall glass of iced tea.

A long time favorite in the West Plains area, here I am (left) performing with Mosa at the Yellow House.

Later in the evening Blackberry Winter, the Winter’s Bone group will perform around 6 p.m. This from the Old Time Music Festival website; “Several musicians featured in either the film or the soundtrack recording (or both) will perform at the festival, prior to Farrar’s performance.  They include singer Marideth Sisco and guitarist Dennis Crider, both of West Plains; banjoist Van Colbert, Willow Springs; multi-instrumentalist Bo Brown, Springfield; fiddler Billy Ward and bassist Tedi May.  Sisco, Crider and Colbert all are well-known to Old-Time Music, Ozark Heritage Festival audiences.  Sisco and Crider are members of the Davis Creek Rounders based in West Plains.  Colbert is a member of the Colbert Brothers of Willow Springs.  All three participate in musical events in the area.

Bo Brown, who sings and plays mandolin, guitar, dobro and bass, has been involved in various Springfield-area bands since the 1970s.  He was a member of the Undergrass Boys which toured extensively in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  He is now a member of two groups, the Lowdown Fancy and the Hillcats.  Billy Ward and Tedi May are members of Dirt Road Delight, a band that contributed to the film’s soundtrack.  Both are natives of Taney County but are now based in Georgia.  Ward has won several national-scale contests in both fiddling and guitar flatpicking in recent years.  May reportedly was the first woman to graduate with honors from the Atlanta Music Institute with a degree in bass.  She has recorded and performed extensively with several bands.”
