The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame will host the Klondike 5 String Band on Thursday at 8 pm at The Frisco Depot, 401 S. 3rd St. Guaranteed to bring out your inner-hillbilly, Tulsa-based Klondike5 String Band plays foot-stompin’, yee-hawin’, old-timey music.

Matt Skelton heads the band up with rhythm guitar and gritty lead vocals while his wife, Carmen, saws the double-stops on her fiddle and sings with a soprano voice.

Eric Fransen is featured on the locally-crafted Bishline banjo while Victor “Groove” Wandres slaps out the lines on the bass fiddle in time with washboard and mouth-harp player Ted Ward.

Along with numerous original tunes that are guaranteed to get you on your feet, the band digs deep into the dark corners of the traditional music songbook to resurrect numbers that are hundreds of years old, songs that have just always been there, but are seldom heard anymore.

Admission will be $5 at the door and refreshments will be available. All ages welcome.
