On Friday, June 10, from 7 to 9 p.m. the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center (CSRHC) in Enid will present Museum After Dark: Village Sounds featuring singer/songwriter Stacey Sanders.
“Village Sounds, a “Museum After Dark” events are intimate listening experiences held at the Village Church on the grounds of the Humphrey Heritage Village at CSRHC. This series explores the Oklahoma story from the perspective of musicians and songwriters from our state who are authentic interpreters of the past.
Stacey Sanders is a singer/songwriter from Enid, Oklahoma. His song “Government Issue” confirms he was born in Blackwell, with the lyrics: “I was a Desert Strike baby conceived in 1964.” His family relocated frequently to other states and Germany due to his father’s military service until they made Enid, OK their home in 1976. Stacey started playing acoustic guitar and penning songs during his teens. He cut his teeth on the sounds of James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg, Neil Young and other acoustic-themed musicians he admired.
Sanders unapologetically shies away from love songs and prefers telling gritty, earthy stories. Many of his songs are based on true-life experiences while others are whimsical, wild tales. Early childhood memories of family vacations that stretched from Los Angeles to the plains, boyhood journeys of red dirt roads, hitchhiking blue highways, and lunch breaks at interstate truck stops are all touched on with his clever lyrics.
The concert is included with the cost of admission to the CSRHC. Members of the CSRHC or the Oklahoma Historical Society always visit the center for free.
This event is made possible through the financial support of our community partner, Park Avenue Thrift.
