Museum After Dark: Village Sounds, featuring Gus Burns

On Friday, August 9, we are pleased to bring you Gus Burns for Village Sounds. The museum will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., with music starting in the Village Church at 7:00 p.m.
As a museum, it is our role to be honest, authentic interpreters of the past, using pieces of historic evidence as our guide. We use that evidence to tell the story of our past. Musicians are also storytellers. The good ones also tell honest, authentic stories about the world around us. Village Sounds, a “Museum After Dark” experience at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, is a chance to explore our story in Oklahoma from the perspective of different songwriters from our state.
The Village Church on the grounds of the Humphrey Heritage Village will be transformed for the evening into an intimate listening room for different musicians to share their songs and their stories. The Heritage Center will remain open for the duration, so visitors can also explore our shared history at their leisure.
About the Artist:
Gus Burns is a singer-songwriter from Caldwell, Kansas, who has cut his teeth from Kansas City down to Texas, but most recently making a name for himself in the Oklahoma music scene. His musical style is one of honest lyrics that come from the heart and relate to his audience, blended with a honky-tonk attitude cultivated from years of playing beer joints and dive bars. With roots in Red Dirt and traditional country, Gus is brining back the classic Americana sound that music fans have been missing and are so captivated by.
Gus released his self-titled EP, “Gus and the Saddle Tramps,” in late 2021, but dropped “Saddle Tramps” in 2022. Gus is a hard-living troubadour, and his songs reflect stories of good times, heartbreak, and love lost.
The concert is of no extra cost, outside of admission to the Heritage Center. Members of the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center or the Oklahoma Historical Society always visit the Heritage Center for free.
