The healing power of Red Dirt and water.
Thursday, Sept. 12-Saturday, Sept. 14
The music festival that’s all about Oklahoma’s Stillwater-hewn Red Dirt music is about to create waves in the waters of the Illinois River. Medicine Stone, the three-day concert event headed-up by none other than Jason Boland & the Stragglers along with the Turnpike Troubadours includes the sounds of Randy Crouch, Stoney Larue, Cody Canada & the Departed, Red Dirt Rangers, Todd Snider, John Fullbright and more. Is it any wonder Tahlequah has seen a flux of bookings for this weekend? Medicine Stone opens at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, at Diamondhead Resort, 12081 Oklahoma 10, east of Tahlequah and on the banks of the scenic river. Camping sites have sold out, too, but single day passes are still available and start at $15 with three-day passes at $45. Parking is separate, too, $15-$45 depending on the pass you purchase.
