Museum After Dark: Village Sounds, featuring Stacey Sanders

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.
On Friday, June 10th, 2022, we are pleased to bring you Stacey Sanders.
Stacey Sanders is a singer/songwriter from Enid, Oklahoma.
As Sanders’ song Government Issue suggests, “I was a Desert Strike baby conceived in 1964.”, he indeed was born in 1965 in Blackwell, OK. His family relocated frequently to other states and Germany due to his father’s military service until they settled in Enid, OK in 1976.
Stacey then started playing acoustic guitar and penning songs during his teens. He cut his teeth on the sounds of James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg, Neil Young and any other acoustic-themed musician he would aspire to become.
Sanders unapologetically shies away from love songs and prefers telling gritty, earthy stories. Many of his songs are based on true-life experiences while others are whimsical, wild tales. His earliest childhood memories of family vacations from Los Angeles back to the Plains, boyhood journeys of red dirt roads, hitchhiking blue highways, and lunch breaks at interstate truck stops are evident in his clever lyrics.
His favorite guitar is his ’77 Martin D-35.
He resides in Enid with his wife Kay and their dog Jane.
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.
This event is made possible through the financial support of our community partner, Park Avenue Thrift.

The event is finished.
