2018 OIBF presents a FANTASTIC weekend of music with 20 acts this year!
Our American entertainers are: Bluegrass Martins, Starkey & Clark, The Byron Berline Band, Choctaw Line, Barry “Bones” Patton, The Neverly Hillbillies, Steelwind, Cowboy Jim Garling, The Red Dirt Rangers, Bret Graham, Hunt Family Band, Mountain Smoke, RussellClan, The Baker Family, The Foust Family and The Bonhams.
And, in the Youth Tent only, 1 More Rd. and several of our other bands will entertain school kids and festival attendees.
