The fifth annual Burton’s Bend Music festival will be returning with the favorite cast of performers and some new faces.
The festival will be held on August 8th and 9th at the Holbrook Central Plains Development Center. Organizer Chris Whipple said “this year, we have our Burton’s Bend ‘cast’, and they are basically the nucleus of the festival, they are the ones that helped get it started, they came for basically next-to- no pay. We’ve kind of formed that family.” Her cast of regulars includes Janet McBride, Alexa Whipple, Tex and Mary Schutz, and Cindy Boehler.
“Each year, we try to add something new, a new element. We got two really good editions to the festival this year. We have the Prowell family band… and the Punches Family Band,” said Whipple.
The Prowell Family Band comes from Kansas with mom - Cynthia, Dad – Scott, and daughters-Sadie and Emma. Whipple said they “they do a lot of original bluegrass, folk, in fact a good part of their music are originals.” Whipple added that the Prowell Family Band was nominated “The Best Gospel Band 2014” in the Rio Grande Valley.
