Music, Memories and More at the Mill is a three hour event which in cold or wet weather is presented inside our rustic sawmill building where we have a large vintage wood/coal burning stove.  When the Oklahoma weather permits we may move the event outside on the grass.  For those who chose to attend evening performances the flickering light of kerosene lanterns adds a highly unique element.

Folk singer Doug Russell's gentle ways and music will bring tears to your eyes and laughter to your heart.  Storyteller Shaun Perkins will entertain by taking you down quiet roads in your mind to evoke memories with each step.  She will then will encourage you to tell your own story.

While your heart and head are being filled your stomach will not be forgotten!  Fried chicken will arrive shortly after you do so come hungry.

These events are family friendly and smoke free.  Music, Memories and More at the Mill is designed for groups of 40 or more by appointment almost anytime the weather is cooperative
