Woodyfest 2019: Thursday Backstage

Backstage at the Pastures of Plenty Between 2018 and 2019 I did some horse­trad­ing and upgraded my Hasselblad 500C/​​M to a 503cx. I also acquired a Hasselblad Nr. 45071 pis­tol grip so I could mount a Vivitar 285HV Zoom Thyristor flash in place of my bulkier Sunpak 622. But oth­er­wise I took these pic­tures with the same equip­ment and film as last… Read More …

Woodyfest 2013: Still on the Hill

Arkansas Duo Brings Ozarks Energy to Okemah Bring­ing their “low-​​tech” PowerPoint to the Brick Street Café in 2013, musi­cal duo Still on the Hill had the audi­ence in stitches. Quilting stitches, that is; the PowerPoint slides con­sisted of text and images on hand­made quilts, dis­played as sto­ry­telling aids. Husband and wife Kelly and Donna Mulhollan… Read More …

Woodyfest 2019: Wink Burcham

Wink Burcham In 2019 Tulsa-​​based singer/​​songwriter Wink Burcham made his sixth straight Woodyfest appear­ance, per­form­ing a late-​​afternoon set on the Bound for Glory stage. The thirty-​​eight-​​year-​​old Muskogee native looked older and con­sid­er­ably thin­ner than when I first met him sev­eral years ago. I’d been hear­ing rumors of Burcham going through hard times through the musi­cal grapevine for… Read More …

Woodyfest 2013: Tim Easton

Tim Easton Featuring Megan Palmer We’ve fea­tured folk-​​troubadour Tim Easton at the bureau pre­vi­ously. But we first met him in 2019 when he made his Woody Guthrie Folk Festival debut. He was joined on the Crystal Theatre stage by vet­eran folk-​​fiddler Megan Palmer. Easton has made four appear­ances at Woodyfest since then, most recently in… Read More …

Woodyfest 2019: Andy Adams

Back to Square One Although Andy Adams is no stranger to music, the Tahlequah native admits the title of his lat­est release, Back to Square One, could be taken lit­er­ally. As described in an arti­cle The Daily Oklahoman, Back to Square One is aptly titled and [is] the result of […] a prac­ti­cal com­mit­ment to the… Read More …

Woodyfest 2019: Community Outreach with Gypsy Twang & Friends

Woodyfest Community Outreach We’ve writ­ten about Gypsy Twang before, so we’ll keep this short. The Tulsa band appeared at Woodyfest for the sec­ond time in 2019. In addi­tion to their Thursday per­for­mance on the new Bound for Glory stage, the combo donated their tal­ents to one of the festival’s com­mu­nity out­reach shows. Five of Woodyfest’s… Read More …

Woodyfest 2013: Band Camp & Backstage

Today we present can­did images from my first year as a vol­un­teer pho­tog­ra­pher for the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. I was still learn­ing to use my newly-​​acquired Leica dig­i­tal rangefinder cam­era when I shot the 2012 fes­ti­val from the audi­ence. A year later I had shot numer­ous musi­cal per­for­mances and fes­ti­vals, so I was feel­ing much more con­fi­dent as I doc­u­mented the… Read More …
