Giddy-Up Gala Bar-B-Que dinner, concert set

Special to the Altus Times

The Great Plains Stampede Rodeo is fast approaching and its Giddy-Up Gala time again.

This year The Shortgrass Arts and Humanities Council or SAHC is sponsoring the Byron Berline Bluegrass Band performing at the annual “Giddy-Up Gala” on Aug. 26 at the Jackson County Expo Center.

Byron Berline is a three-time National Fiddle Champion and his band is well known nationwide for its toe-tapping bluegrass and western swing music.

Everyone is invited to enjoy a Bar-B-Que dinner with all the sides and home-made desserts, listen to the bluegrass music and dance to the band’s selections of western swing.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and will end in time for everyone to attend the rodeo.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students.

This project is supported in part by the Oklahoma Arts Council which receives support from the State of Oklahoma and the National Endowment for the Arts. Tickets are available from the Chamber of Commerce 580-482-0210 or call the SAHC office 580-477-1616 and leave a message requesting tickets.
