The Cedar Rock Inn at Redberry Farm, 4501 W. 41st St., is preparing for another summer of live music on the lawn, even if it’s a bit behind schedule. On July 1, the Inn welcomes the Red Dirt Rangers for a free, 6 p.m. performance.
COVID-19 presented many problems for owner Sandi Dittmann while trying to plan a live music schedule for the summer. “We usually start earlier in the summer,” she says. “I had everything planned for May and June and had to cancel those.”
Since the July concert is on the Inn’s massive lawn, it should be easy to keep a 6-foot distance. Supporting acts have not yet been announced.
“We have a food truck that we’re trying to have up and running by then, and I’m hoping people will be allowed to go into the Inn for a tour,” Dittmann says. “We can also sell wine and beer now, or people can bring their own.”
Dittmann is excited to share the Inn with Tulsa again because the property is new and improved. The Inn has a new parking lot, which is the reason it can host a crowd-gathering band like the Red Dirt Rangers for the first time.
“The reason I even started doing these was so people could come see this big beautiful house,” Dittmann says. “I’m excited for everyone to come outside, enjoy some fresh air and listen to this great band.”
