Steve Kelsey, folksinger/storyteller with the Arkansas Arts Council, engages the participants with Civil War music and story telling

After dinner, Kelsey gets the participants involved.

Kelsey accompanies himself on dulcimer.
Songs and stories were quite humorous!
Others offered real insight into early Arkansas

A few nights later, more authentic music, performed by Lightening Bug
(John Cook and Michael Walden)

Lightening Bug "Gets Down!"
An attentive audience

As the "Bugs" finish ...
