STILLWATER, Okla. — The tradition of music and good times will continue for a third year.

The Gypsy Cafe features some of Oklahoma’s most talented artists meeting to share songs and stories while visiting The Farm, a legendary home to some of the most renowned musicians and pioneers of Red Dirt music. They will then take their talents to the stage Oct. 4.

According to a Stillwater Convention and Visitor’s Bureau press release, more than 35 Oklahoma singer/songwriters will take part, including Tom Skinner, Parker Millsap, the Red Dirt Rangers and Andy Brewer of Taddy Porter.

“A lot of musicians have come to the table and wanted to participate and it’s their opportunity to have little jam sessions and perform with artists they haven’t worked with before,” said CVB Executive Director Cristy Morrison.

Morrison said many groups and individuals have stepped up to sponsor the event and make sure it continues.

Artists will pair off at one of four venues — Eskimo Joes, Stonewall Tavern, The College Bar and Willie’s — to perform from 7 p.m. to midnight. All artists will meet up for a final performance at Eskimo Joe’s at the end of the night.

Festival passes, which allow access to all four venues, will be $25 or $20 with a student ID, at www.reddirtrelieffund.org or The Territory in Stillwater. Individual tickets are available based on capacity the day of the show for $10 per venue.
