Press release — MJ’s note: This event is always held indoors, in air-conditioned comfort, and is very comfortable and friendly, as most (if not all) bluegrass events are. Actually, maybe even more so at Melody Ranch!
We hope you have plans to attend our Deep Summer Bluegrass Festival August 26-29. All events are inside the air conditioned Chrystal Opry House. We have a kick-off potluck supper on Aug. 26 at 6 p.m., which is free for campers. If you aren’t camping and wish to come, please call 903-546-6893 for more information. There will be fellowship and jamming afterwards.
The gospel section of the festival begins at p.m. on Thursday evening, with Tanner Young & Friends, Dueling Hearts, Phil Ferguson & Texas True, and Copper Canyon for that evening.
Friday’s events begin at 1 p.m. with Pearl & the Polka Dots, Janet Schaffer & The Upper Grassmen, Dueling Hearts, and Mark Phillips & IIIrd Generation Bluegrass Band. The evening performance will begin at 6:00 p.m.
Saturday’s musical events begin at 1 p.m. with Tin Top Road, Southbound Mule, Blue Valley III, and Mark Phillips & IIIrd Generation Bluegrass Band. The evening performances will begin at 6 p.m.
The Chrystal Opry House is located at 1977 White Mound Road, Tom Bean (Sherman), Texas which is 1.5 miles west of Tom Bean or 6 miles east of Howe on FM 902 and a half mile south on White Mound Road. No alcohol is permitted and there is no smoking inside the building. Seating is provided.
Food is available at the snack bar inside the Opry House during the shows. We serve hamburgers, hot dogs, chopped brisket sandwiches, and during the dinner hour on Friday and Saturday evening, we will serve an enchilada, bean, and rice plate.
