For centuries, the fiddle has brought people to their feet or to tears, and is a revered and exquisite instrument that pulls on the strings of the heart. Since 2007, The National Fiddler Hall of Fame has sought to recognize and honor the best of those musicians who have embraced and shared its siren song with the world, and for their contributions to the art form. On October 22, 2021, at 7 p.m., they will host their 2020-2021 Gala Induction Concert at the Mabee Center in Tulsa, with optimum CDC precautions in place for a safe and star-studded evening.
For more than 120 years, the Indian Women’s Pocahontas Club has upheld the values, the culture and the customs of the Cherokee people. Among the club’s traditions are its annual “Hats off to Will” Will Rogers Tribute and Wreath Laying Ceremony, held near Will Rogers’ birthday. This year, however, the group is adding several surprising tours and new activities to the day of remembrance and celebration.
