BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (September 9, 2020) – OKM Music is closing out its 36th annual festival with a free festival performance featuring the Clark Gibson Quintet and Balsam Range on Thursday, September 10 at 6:00 p.m. Due to inclement weather predicted, the festival finale has been moved indoors to the Bartlesville Community Center.
Kicking off at 6:00 p.m., Clark Gibson is a jazz saxophonist, composer, and educator at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK and has recently self-released “Tri Colored Eyes” featuring his latest project, the Clark Gibson Quintet. This unique jazz ensemble features Pat Bianchi, Jim Pisano, Michael Dease, and Jeremy Thomas on drums. This musical project has enjoyed national attention as well as reviews from jazz festivals all over the world.
At 7:30 p.m., guests will get to enjoy the toe-tappin’ bluegrass award-winning, Balsam Range. Being the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year, Balsam Range, has become one of the genre’s most award-winning acts. Members of the energetic ensemble include Buddy Melton, Darren Nicholson, Dr. Marc Pruett, Tim Surrett, and Caleb Smith. Balsam Range is extremely proud of their home of Hawyood County, NC and enjoy sharing a bit of their home with guests all over the country.
Guests attending the September 10 performance will also enjoy local food vendors: CAKES by Lissa, Price’s Meat Market, Price Tower Plaza, and Super Centro. In addition, children will have many activities and games to take home after the performance. Food and children’s activities will be available in the Community Hall of the Bartlesville Community Center.
In addition to the planned events, Bartlesville alumni and KJRH Tulsa reporter, Katie Keleher, will be the emcee for the evening.
To ensure everyone’s safety, guests will have the opportunity to get their temperature checked, receive facial coverings (encouraged to wear), and hand-sanitizer will also be available. Seating will also be spread out by every other row with a two-seat gap in-between guests to ensure a six-foot distance between individuals.
Transactions on food and merchandise are recommended to be completed by card only.
The September 10 finale performance is free for general admission. Guests planning to attend are asked to RSVP online at: okmmusic.org or by calling (918) 336-9900.
