Skinnerfest 2023 kicked off with a VIP Brunch at Shrine featuring Tulsa’s King Cabbage Brass Band which led to a second-line parade and serious get-down on the patio at Mercury Lounge! The music continued with rousing sets from Johnny Mullenax Bluegrass Brunch, Wednesday Science Project with the Red Dirt Rangers, big vocal harmonies from And Then There Were Two with Cassie Latshaw, tear-inspiring songs from Saugeye and a Tom Skinner-dedicated set from John Fullbright that he began solo singing songs and telling stories about Tom that led into a full band performance. The night was capped with big performances from Osage County at Shrine and Damion Shade & the Boom Bap Chorus at Merc. Even after 10 hours of music, fans crowded in to Thelma’s Peach for the afterparty with Johnny Murrell and friends!
