Musical guests scheduled to appear at this spring’s event include:
 
That Dalton Gang
 
That Dalton Gang is a versatile group of young musicians and one old guy. The group centers around the two young Dalton sisters:  Cheyenne, age 14 and Maddie, age 10, playing twin fiddles, mandolin and guitar with astounding professionalism. The sibling harmony vocals will pull you right to the center of every song they perform.  Taylen Winchell might still be a teenager but he plays banjo with the authority of a seasoned veteran. Tory Butler plays bass and is an excellent addition to the band.  The group is rounded out by mentor Russ Weeks (the one old guy). 
 
Eric Thompson
 
Eric Thompson is a rising star in the harmonica world.  He is a native of Arcadia Valley and stays busy playing with several bands including Black Diamond Trio, Saxy Jazz and Jive Turkey’s.  Eric is able to play with the speed of bluegrass, the growl of the blues and the soul of southern gospel all in one show.
 
Book of Ruth
 
Book of Ruth was born in 2013 when Colleen Mitchell, Lindsey Currie, Kelly Elders and Stormy Bennett realized they all shared a love of the older gospel hymns and songs. They have performed for numerous churches and worthwhile functions around the Parkland. The name for the group sprung from the book of Ruth in the old testament.  Ruth’s bloodline ran all the way to Jesus himself. 
 
Ozark Spirit Cloggers
 
Ozark Spirit Cloggers are a group who desire to dance and promote the fun and fellowship of clogging. Clogging is fun, great exercise, and a lot of entertainment.
 
 
The Bankesters
 

Phil and Dorene Bankester and their three daughters, Emily, Melissa and Dorene and son-in-law, Kyle, are known for some of the finest harmony singing in bluegrass music. In a short amount of time they have developed a unique sound that has drawn critical acclaim from across the bluegrass community.


The Arcadia Valley Band
 
Bobby Powell, Phil Wadlow, Tyler and Tim Sappington have harmonized together at the Friday night “Pickin on the Square.” The group, from teenage to 70, enjoy their music and their time together.  Each lends their own expertise to the band.
