The Okie From Muskogee: A Tribute to the Bakersfield Sound
The Okie From Muskogee: A Tribute to the Bakersfield Sound
Universally recognized as ‘The Country Music Capital of the West Coast’ and ‘Nashville West’, Bakersfield is the birthplace for what would become known worldwide as the Bakersfield Sound. The sub-genre of country music – described as a mix of twangy guitars, drums, fiddle, and steel guitar – was a defiant reaction to the string orchestras and the polished sound of albums being recorded in Nashville during the 1950s and ’60s.

Many musicians and entertainers were involved in making the Bakersfield Sound a global phenomenon and this concert honors just some of those artists through one incredible night of music.
