Joni Harms performs.

The “Raised Country” music festival in Antelope at 1 p.m., Aug. 5, on the church lawn will feature music, entertainment, a Chuckwagon BBQ and kids’ activities all in one location, according to a press release.

An “all Oregon Artists” lineup is slated for the 27th annual festival.

Festival kicks off with Steve and RonaLee Campbell performing. Steve, a master craftsman, also creates custom guitars and other stringed instruments.

Following the Campbells is an authentic BBQ by Rod McGuire of Paradise Rose.

Then relax and enjoy the incredible harmonies and bluegrass sounds of central Oregon’s Mud Springs Gospel Band, while the kids stay busy with the ranch animal petting area and face painting.

Oregon’s award winning singer/songwriter, Joni Harms will perform in the afternoon.

Harms has been recognized numerous times by the Academy of Western Artists as Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and for Song of the Year. She will be joined on stage by her band, as well as her daughter, Olivia Harms Wichman, who has just returned from Nashville, TN.

Olivia will share a few of her own songs which offer a vibrant, fresh new sound to the world of country music.
