In keeping with the Original Art Theme - the musical talent for the weekend will include local up and coming musicians - Ivan Duke, Alex Hall, Peggy Hoskins, Terry Dillard, Buddy Carvello, Trip Henson, The Hurricane Band and other Special Guests.  The music will range from country to gospel to southern rock and provide a great back drop for your original art.  The music will play on the depot stage where you will also be allowed to conduct art demonstrations and interactive sessions if interested.  There will be BBQ and drinks available all weekend provided by Oakwood Occasions.
