Tribute to Jimmie Driftwood, featuring Charlie White
Our yearly Tribute Concert to Jimmy Driftwood is always a fun event. Driftwood was a native-born Ozark singer and songwriter who penned the Grammy winning “Battle of New Orleans” and was a prominent figure in the origin of the Ozark Folk Center. Come see as some of his contemporaries, as well as others who only knew of him, perform many of his various tunes.

Charlie White will be the featured performer for this tribute. He'll be joined by the Old Timers, Dave Smith, Charlie Teas and Ruby Pines. The concert starts at 7:00, theater opens at 6:00 and regular admission prices apply. Season passes will be honored.

October Fun in the Craft Village

Learn how to spin a top, weave a scarf, make your own sauerkraut and so much more in the Craft Village during October. Fall is a beautiful time of year to be in the Ozarks, so join us for some good, old-fashioned fun.
During the month of October we have daily demonstrations like apple drying, tomahawk throwing and soap making, as well as special all day events such as Sorghum Making on October 13 and the Sheep to Shawl Demonstration on October 20. Don't forget the Extension Homemaker's Annual Quilt Show, October 25-27.

Every day is special at the Ozark Folk Center, but October might be just a little more so.

Herb Harvest Fall Festival this week

Loyal readers know that this coming Thursday, October 4th and Friday and Saturday, October 5 and 6, 2012, the Ozark Folk Center’s Heritage Herb Garden is producing the annual Sumptuous Herb Harvest Supper and Herb Harvest Fall Festival.

The reception details, from food and libation, entertainment and the garden have been exquisitely planned. At this writing, Susan Belsinger is working with Skillet Restaurant managers Michael Lengenfelder and Jessica Sterlin and our chefs on the Sumptuous Supper and Herb Harvest Fall Festival luncheon foods. The tangine (a traditional North African cooking vessel) pictured was made here at the Ozark Folk Center by our potters, John Perry and Judi Munn.
Suzanne Runsick, Dot Sanders, Beth Peck Cooper, Kathleen Connole and I, all members of the Ozark Unit of The Herb Society of America are presenting Renovating the Folk Kids’ Mountain Garden on Friday. This program is the story of team work, collaboration, arbitration, hot sweat and creative genius. Just this past week, Phyllis Williams and her husband, David, built and delivered the life-size ‘Huckleberry Finn’ raft. Members of the Mountain View Art Guild volunteered their time and artistic skill to the painting of a fantastic, historically-correct river crossing mural as the backdrop to the ‘Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn’ portion of the garden.
Ms. Shimizu, of The Victory Garden, who is currently the Executive Director of the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C., is delighted to be visiting the Ozarks. Pat Crocker is coming all the way from Toronto, Canada. She will be teaching food and flavor preservation techniques from her latest book, Preserving and teaming up with Susan Belsinger, from Brookeville, Maryland to demonstrate two Tagines and a Coussousiere.  These special guests are coming here from so far away. There are still many seats left in the White Oak Auditorium. No cooking or gardening show on the television screen will ever match what you will experience here, live and in person. We all do this for you. I sure do hope that you will come.
The complete schedule and registration is posted on the Ozark Folk Center web site on the herb page. Call 870-269-3851 to register.
