(West Plains) – Several new acts will join a list of crowd-pleasing favorites on the main performance stage at the 18th annual Old-Time Music, Ozark Heritage Festival, a two-day celebration of Ozarks culture set for June 15 and 16 in downtown West Plains.

Newcomers to this year’s festival include:

• The Rhythmia, an acoustic string band from the Kansas City area that performs a mix of authentic ragtime with old-time fiddle tunes.

• Lyal Strickland, a Buffalo, Mo., native who has been writing and performing since he was 13, using what he knows as a farmer with a film degree to develop songs about small-town life, big city adventure and the road in between;

• Allison Williams and the Hot Ash String Band.  Williams plays old-time clawhammer banjo in a modern context.

• The Baker Family of Winona, which features Missouri and Arkansas Junior Champion Fiddler Trustin Baker, 13, as well as his siblings.

• The Falcon Family of Springfield, who will present a cultural exchange of Native American song and dance representing several nations.

Admission to the Old Time Music Ozarks Heritage Festival is free.
