Willi Carlisle Concert

Saturday, February 22, 3 p.m.


Willi Carlisle is, according to The Washington Post, “powerful…both down-home and brainy.” With years of collecting folklore, playing or calling square dances, and working in the avant-garde, Willi Carlisle is a multi-faceted writer, performer, and instrumentalist on banjo, fiddle, guitar, accordion, and more!

Admission is free but a $10 donation supports Willi and the mission of Ozark Folkways.

Hands-On Shiitake Mushroom Growing

Saturday, March 7, 1pm – 3pm

Grow your own gourmet mushrooms!

In this hands-on workshop with Winslow resident and mushroom aficionado John Collier, you will not only learn how to cultivate the mushrooms, but you’ll actually do it. Each participant will receive an oak log to work with and we’ll go through the whole process of drilling, plugging, and waxing. You will have enough plugs to do your in-class log, along with extra plugs and wax to take home with you. We’ll use shiitake plugs in this workshop, as they are particularly easy to grow. We’ll also learn about others varieties you can grow and receive information on where to buy plug spawn and supplies .

Bring a (charged) cordless drill and a 5/16″ bit if you have them.


To participate in this workshop, you must register HERE

Tickets are $35 per person and includes instruction and materials. The event is limited to 10 participants. Tickets are non-refundable. (In the event that you are unable to use your ticket we will make every effort to resell your ticket and refund your money, but if we can’t find someone to purchase the seat, there will be no refund.)

Still on the Hill Concert

Saturday, March 7, 3pm


Kelly & Donna of Still on the Hill are award winning ‘story telling-song writers’. Different than most singer-songwriters, this dynamic duo embellishes their songs with a host of unique instruments from the hills they call home. Many of these were hand-made by old-timers and have amazing stories that go with them.


Admission is free, but a donation of $10 will support the musicians and the mission of Ozark Folkways to preserve, develop, instruct, and celebrate the arts, crafts, and music of our region.

Candy Lee Concert

Award winning multi-instrumentalist Candy Lee’s music features a unique, crystal-clear voice. Her eclectic writing style draws from her love of Americana, 1940s Jazz, Bluegrass, Blues, and Funk.
Admission is free, but a donation of $10 will support the musicians and the mission of Ozark Folkways to preserve, develop, instruct, and celebrate the arts, crafts, and music of our region.
