Grant Peeples with Terry 'Buffalo' Ware and special guests Annie Oakley

Our season kicks off with poetry, the spirit of Woody Guthrie, and artists who are some of his biggest fans.

Grant Peeples and the Peeples Republik: A Congress of TreasonsGrant Peeples has been called "a guitar slinging poet" and you can bet he'll be sharing some of his unique views along with his axe-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads.

Grant last visited the Old Church back in 2014 for one of our Annual post-Woodyfest shows and he will be joined by the legendary Terry ‘Buffalo’ Ware who also leads the house band at Woodyfest on guitar.

Joining them will be Annie Oakley who Grant first met at Woodyfest some years ago and introduced them to us in 2014, describing them as "extremely talented." We would agree.

Tickets for this Friday night show are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. This show is also included in the season ticket package.

Levi Parham featuring Jesse Aycock and Lauren Barth

Levi Parham: These American BluesLevi Parham’s These American Blues was one of the best albums to come out last year and he'll be bringing a full band to back him up at the Old Church in May.

“Perhaps it’s something in the water — the same iron-heavy tap drink that Woody Guthrie sipped on as a young man — that leads to an inherited sense of melody,” said The Bluegrass Situation. “Whatever it is, Levi Parham has it.”

He'll be joined by legendary guitarist, solo artist, sideman and hard working American Jesse Aycock and Lauren Barth whose debut solo album Foyager will be released the day before. Yes, it'll be another special night at the Church that you won't want to miss.

Tickets for this Saturday night show are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. This show is also included in the season ticket package.

Parker Millsap Trio

Parker Millsap: The Very Last DayWhen he last played at the Old Church with bandmates Michael Rose and Daniel Foulks in 2014, Parker Millsap was barely old enough to get into bars. Since then, he’s set the world on fire by playing the Apple Music Festival with Elton John, made his network television debut on CONAN, been on Austin City Limits, toured with Sarah Jarosz and won the International Folk Music Awards’ Artist of the Year.

His most recent album The Very Last Day received praise from The New York Times, The Boston Globe, LA Times, Austin Chronicle and Rolling Stone to name just a few.

Parker returns to the Old Church for a special Sunday night show this June to end our spring concerts. Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door.

Jamie Lin Wilson

Jamie Lin Wilson: Holidays and Wedding RingsIt's hard to believe that Jamie Lin Wilson’s Holidays & Wedding Rings is her first full length solo album after working for more than a decade as professional musician with The Gougers and then The Trishas. But it's both true and beautiful.

Jamie was pregnant with her third child while making Holidays & Wedding Rings and her home life as a wife and mom come through in her music.

When describing Jamie's voice, two aspects come to mind: that honeyed tenor twang that's become known as one of the sweetest instruments in modern folk music, and that poignant, poetic, down-to-earth point of view she brings to her songwriting.

Tickets for this Friday night show are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. This show is also included in the season ticket package.

Annual post-Woodyfest Concert featuring Don Conoscenti, Radoslav Lorchovic, Nancy Apple and Rob McNurlin

Don Conoscenti: Anastasia Don Conoscenti and Radoslav Lorchovic have played at the Old Church before — Don at the post-Woodyfest showing in 2014 and Rad with Jimmy LaFave a few times, including just last October — but not as headliners at our post-Woodyfest concert which is odd given that they are both regulars in Okemah.

Once a die-hard rocker, Don is one of the most respected musicians and acclaimed songwriters in acoustic music having written and played with our friends the Red Dirt Rangers along with a who's who of music from around the World. NPR, World Café and Acoustic Café have all spotlighted his music and he has played some of the top venues and festivals including the Kerrville Folk Festival, The Troubadour and The Kennedy Center.

Rad is also a gifted musician best known for his piano and accordion playing, but he can play just about anything with keys or even strings drawing from influences ranging from elegant classical and jazz styles to the rawest, most basic blues, country and soul. His 30-year career has culminated in five critically acclaimed solo recordings and numerous appearances on the recordings of and performances with artists including Odetta, Jimmy LaFave, Ellis Paul, Ronny Cox, Dave Moore and Bo Ramsey.

They will be joined by the legendary Nancy Apple and Rob McNurlin — two fine performers in vein of Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Elvis — yes, that Elvis. It's going going to one fine night!

Tickets for this Monday night show are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. This show is also included in the season ticket package.

Annual FUNdraiser & BBQ with the Guitar Army — Terry 'Buffalo' Ware, Mike Hosty, and Ryan 'Danger' McCall

Terry 'Buffalo' Ware: Man With Guitar and Amp

Mike Hosty: Uno

BC & the Big Rig: Do You Remember How to Rock and Roll?

To close out the season, we're putting together a once in a lifetime concert featuring great guitarists and songwriters as part of our annual end of the season potluck fundraiser & BBQ.

Almost a year ago, we heard that our friend and “most valuable player” Terry ‘Buffalo’ Ware used to share studio space with Mike Hosty in Norman to teach guitar lessons. Since Hosty is one of the best live acts in the state and Buffalo plays with everyone, we started asking around and every working musician we know said they'd pay to see that kind of show that only we can produce.

In addition to his half dozen solo records, Buffalo had toured with John Fullbright and backed Joel Rafael, Eliza Gilkyson, Smokey and the Mirror, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Michael Fracasso, Bob Livingston, Audrey Auld, Susan Herndon, Miss Brown to You, Red Dirt Rangers, Bob Childers, Greg Jacobs, Ellis Paul, Camille Harp, Wanda Jackson and many others — just to name a few.

Hosty is perhaps best known for the song Oklahoma Breakdown which he wrote and recorded as the Hosty Duo and which left a mark on the red dirt landscape. In addition to performing about 250 shows a year, he writes great pop songs from a quirky point of view, plays one of the meanest guitars around and can play just about anything — guitar, drums, kazoo, uke — most at the same time.

Gears started spinning and so we enlisted the sounds of young Ryan ‘Danger’ McCall who spends his days teaching youngsters at Daddy O's Music and his nights opening for acts like the Turnpike Troubadours as the featured lead player for BC & the Big Rig. He's a really great up and comer also in big demand as a session guitarist around the state — not to mention just a really nice guy. They'll be joined by a pretty great rhythm section and anyone else we can drag up on stage.

Tickets for this Saturday night show are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. This show is also included in the season ticket package. A BBQ and potluck fundraiser (suggested donation of $20) will be begin around 5:30 p.m. with plenty of time to take in a nap before the show starts.
