Old Washington State Park

June 17 - The Silvey and McWilliams Family are family home-grown bands from Southwest Arkansas. Both groups are comprised of family members and live in the local area. Both have entertained neighbors and friends at church gatherings and community events. Both play a mixture of Americana folk and bluegrass music.

July 15 - The Purple Hulls is the dynamic duo of talented identical twins, Katy Lou & Penny Lea Clark, raised on a working purple hull pea farm near Kilgore Texas.  Concentrations focus on multi-genre venues, festival appearances, church shows and house concerts.
Work in the fields, solid family values and in church every time the doors opened, provide the inspiration and foundation for their authentic acoustic driven music.

August 19 - Oskana Pavilionis is a premier concert violinist who can switch from a heart- rending song by Rachmaninoff to a lilting waltz by Strauss to a fiddle tune that would make you believe she was born in the Ozark Mountains. She is from Benton, Texas and was born in Russia.
