Red Bull Gypsy Cafe red dirt music celebration planned for April in Stillwater
STILLWATER – The Red Bull Gypsy Cafe, a celebration of red dirt music, is planned for April 14-15 in the birthplace of red dirt.
More than 30 red dirt singer-songwriters representing nearly three decades of this musical movement are expected to participate. Among those expected to play the event: Cody Canada, Stoney LaRue, Mike McClure, Steve Rice, Randy Crouch, Tom Skinner, Red Dirt Rangers, Greg Jacobs, Don Morris, John Parker Milsap, Bill Erickson, Monica Taylor, Bob Wiles, Kevin & Dustin Welch, Larry Spears, Susan Herndon, Jimmy LaFave, Travis Kidd, Gene Collier, Bo Phillips, Joe Mack, Chris Bell, Sam Naifeh, Jake Moffat, Randy Pease, Chuck Dunlap, Rick Reily and Joe Baxter.
Red Bull Gypsy Café will gather some of the genre’s greatest talent, both then and now, at the birthplace of red dirt music —Stillwater, according to a news release.
Throughout the two-day celebration, artists are set to gather to share the story of the movement at The Farm, the historic location west of town where many of these musicians played as they were coming up. The event’s name, Gypsy Café, pays homage to the site at The Farm where jam sessions arose over the years.
Day two of the event – April 15 – brings the music to the public in the form of a small festival. Venues on and near Stillwater’s Strip will host the artists playing acoustic-style sets in pairs. Headliners will be staggered by venue on the hour to allow fans to catch their favorite artists.
All proceeds of the festival will be used to help establish the Red Dirt Relief Fund, a nonprofit organization founded and administrated by red dirt musicians in Stillwater to offer assistance to musicians in times of need.
