Gibson House May Festival features local talent

By From page A3 | April 30, 2014

Local talent will be in the spotlight from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 4, on the main stage of the 36th annual Gibson House May Festival. The event is on the grounds of the Yolo County Historical Museum, 512 Gibson Road in Woodland.

Two bands, a folklorico troupe and a cowboy trick roper and whip expert will fill the live entertainment program during the 36th annual event.

The Kick-N-’60s band — with local lead guitarist, Mark Crawford — starts the day. They play only ’60s music: The Beatles, Byrds, Beach Boys and more.

Woodland’s own trick roper and whip master, James Barrera, appears for three encore performances.

The Putah Creek Crawdads, an acoustic vocal and string band, will fill the afternoon with folk, Americana, gospel and bluegrass music.

The Ballet Folklorico de Beamer is a dance troupe from Beamer Elementary School in Woodland. The group creates the festive sights and sounds of classic Mexican folk dancing and will present two shows at this year’s May Festival.

Admission and parking are free.
