TULSA, OKLA - April 22, 2019 - They croon, they scat and they swing and sing like Bing. The multi-talented trio, the Cherokee Maidens are headed to the historic Spotlight Theatre June 7th for a night of harmonic down-home bluegrass and western swing music. Backed by all-star band Sycamore Swing, Oklahoma’s rich musical heritage will be well represented
The melodic braid of these three maidens is time-tested. One was a Dixie Chick, two have appeared on Garrison Keilor’s, A Prairie Home Companion, two have sung at the Grand Ole Opry and all three share Native American heritage, hence their name, inspired by Cindy Walker’s 1941 country hit.
The tri-state trio, made up of Robin Macy, Monica Taylor and Lauren (Sis) White cut their teeth on bluegrass music. Macy resides in Kansas, Taylor is from Oklahoma and White lives in Kentucky; however, the distance doesn’t keep these three talented artists from performing, recording and showing their sentimental side.
Masterfully backing the Cherokee Maidens is western swing band, Sycamore Swing. Led by guitar-slinger Ken (Kentucky White), the star-studded ensemble includes Shelby Eicher on fiddle, Steve Bagsby steel guitar, Nathan Eicher on bass, and Brandon Blackburn on drums. Shelby Eicher and Steve Bagsby are members of the famed Tulsa Playboys.
The concert will be held at Tulsa’s iconic Spotlight Theatre. In addition to giving the beloved theatre a nice makeover, the Board of Directors is venturing into new territory, adding music to their menu of performance offerings. Since 1953 the theatre has staged the hilarious meodrama,
The Drunkard, the longest running live production in the country. Still ongoing, actors take the stage most Saturday evenings delivering the whimsical production at 13th and Riverside to new and returning audiences. “We love the history of what we’ve done over the years at the Spotlight, said board member, Ken Busby, and we are excited to add to that magic by bringing some very talented musical groups to the venue."
The idea was put to the test last summer when the Spotlight Theatre welcomed Kyle Dillingham & Horseshoe Road to the historic stage. The response by concert-goers was overwhelmingly positive which led Spotlight board-members to search out just the right artists to perform at the venue. The building has remarkable acoustics, due mainly to the fact it was originally constructed as a speaking theatre, which makes the venue an attractive spot to host musical guests. The venue’s location is another great draw, right in the heart of many favorite restaurants and attractions, including the nationally number-one-rated
Gathering Place, just blocks down the road from the Spotlight Theatre
The Cherokee Maidens and Sycamore Swing will perform at the Tulsa Spotlight Theatre, 1381 S. Riverside Dr., Friday, June 7th at 7:30 pm. Doors will open at 7 pm. Tickets are $25, available at the door the night of the concert or by calling 918.587.5030 or 918.504.3255. For more information visit
