  • Medicine-StoneTurnpike.jpg Medicine Stone tickets on sale July 1

    Last year, the Diamondhead Resort in Tahlequah set the stage for the inaugural three-day music event, Medicine Stone. An admirable turnout was expected for this first event due to the caliber of artists who were set to perform there, but the response from diehard music fans raised the status to a premier level when thousands gathered on the banks of the Illinois River to celebrate the music scene.
    Sept. 11-13 will see the sequel to an event that could become the top name in Oklahoma festivals.

    This year’s music lineup includes acclaimed artists and event creators Jason Boland and The Stragglers and Turnpike Troubadours, as well as Cody Canada and The Departed, Shinyribs, American Aquarium, Reckless Kelly, Micky and The Motorcars, The Great Divide, Jason Eady, Corb Lund, Dirty River Boys, Brandon Jenkins, Randy Crouch, Red Dirt Rangers, Jonny Burke, Thomas Trapp, and Brandon Clark.
