The Oklahoma Waltz: Ballads and Stories

The Oklahoma Waltz: Ballads and Stories
Tuesday, February 28th at 7 PM
Museum of the Western Prairie, 1100 Memorial Drive, Altus
Free and Open to the Public

Teresa Black, a member of the Territory Tellers and Songwriters of Oklahoma, will entertain us with songs that tell Oklahoma stories inspired by her family and friends, like her great-grandfather who founded some of the new Territory’s most notorious saloons; Gov. “Alfalfa Bill” Murray who declared a “Bridge War” with Texas; her great-uncle who rode with Frank Eaton who was nicknamed “Pistol Pete;” and her mother who made many dashes for the “hidey-hole” seeking shelter from Oklahoma storms. This is certain to be a delightfully entertaining evening. This event is hosted by the Western Trail Historical Society.

Location: Museum of the Western Prairie 1100 Memorial Drive Altus, OK
