TULSA, Okla. Aug. 3, 2021 –Tulsa musicians Seth Lee Jones & Friends, BC & The Big Rig, KALO, Dane & The Soup, and the Tom Skinner’s Science Project will perform at Horton Records 8th Annual Rock ’n Folk ’n Chili Cook-off Saturday Nov. 6, 2021, beginning at 6:15 PM at Tulsa’s historic Cain’s Ballroom, Brian Horton, President of the local nonprofit record label, announced today.

“It’s been humbling to see this event grow each year, with people coming from near and far to celebrate Tulsa-area music, food, art, and community,” says Horton. “It’s hard to believe this will be the eighth year. It’s become a tradition for many and even a kick off for the upcoming holiday season.

Our focus has been, musicians first, community always.”
