ARCADIA – Singer-songwriter T.Z. Wright, a longtime member of the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival House Band, will present Morning Music from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Dec. 8 in the first-floor museum of the Arcadia Round Barn.
Wright, who describes his music as “country-influenced Americana,” has performed at festivals across the state including the Norman Music Festival, GFest in Muskogee and the Skyline Music Festival in Tulsa. He has also appeared at the Blue Door in Oklahoma City and Bob Childer’s Gypsy Café in Stillwater. In the mid-1970s he led the first house band at The Motherlode in Red River, N.M.
“The Round Barn is such an iconic Oklahoma treasure, it’s always a please to be there, experience the unique structure and meet the Route 66 tourists,” said Wright, who divides his time between Norman and Mooreland. “Getting to play music is icing on the cake.”
Admission is free but donations are accepted for the maintenance of the Round Barn, which was built in 1898. The Round Barn museum is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located six miles east of Interstate 35 on Historical Route 66. Handicapped-accessible parking is available on the north side of the barn.
