Join the Eastern Sierra Music Festival for its Spring Barbecue and Artist Exhibition, Saturday, April 16, 2 p.m. at Yribarren Ranch, seven miles south of Bishop on U.S. 395.

The event showcases live music from local talent set to appear at this summer’s Eastern Sierra Music Festival. Those performing at the barbecue include Halfway to Benton, What If, The Harry Andreas Band, 2nd Hand Smoke, and Steven Christie & The Pitchforks.

The barbecue’s menu includes a choice of tri-tip or barbecued turkey with all the fixings. Ranch bean master Duane Rossi will contribute his specialty, and a variety of salads plus homemade cobbler rounds out the meal.

In addition to the music, hay rides will be available, courtesy Lee and Jennifer Roeser.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $12.50 for kids under 12, and are available at Cobwebs, Diane Corsaro Insurance or VFW Post 8988. The festival’s website at WWMusicFest.org also offers barbecue tickets.

This summer’s Eastern Sierra Music Festival features country legends Dwight Yoakam and Larry Gatlin and The Gatlin Brothers, plus rising stars Brooke Eden and Old Southern Moonshine Revival. Tickets for the festival are on sale now and available at the festival’s website, WWMusicFest.org.

Penny Bordokas paying trip forward

Eastern Sierra Music Festival extends its congratulations to Penny Bordokas of Mammoth Lakes for winning the festival’s recent drawing for a seven-day trip to Mexico.

Mrs. Bordokas was selected Sunday as the winner during a Valentine’s Day drawing at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8988 in Bishop.

In the true pay-it-forward fashion surrounding this festival, Mrs. Bordokas told organizers she will not be taking the trip herself. Rather, she is donating the trip to Eastern Sierra Disabled Sports. It is her hope that Eastern Sierra Disabled Sports will hold a drawing among its hardworking staff and volunteers, and that the winner will be taking a well-earned break in the Mexican sunshine sometime soon.

Tickets for the July 22-23 Eastern Sierra Music Festival are on sale at the event’s website, WWMusicFest.org. As previously announced, country singer-songwriter Dwight Yoakam and the legendary Gatlin Brothers will headline the two-day event. Additional artists will include Old Southern Moonshine Revival and a host of local bands.

Proceeds from the festival will benefit the construction of the National Wounded Warrior Center in Mammoth Lakes.
