McKedys

McLoud-based family, The McKedys, will perform Dec. 22 at the Arcadia Round Barn.

The McKedys, a family band from McLoud, will present Morning Music from 10:30 a.m. to noon Dec. 22 at the Arcadia Round Barn.

Mackynsie, 15, and Austin, 12, along with their father, Bryon, make up the country and bluegrass ensemble. 

Austin plays the mandolin, guitar and harmonica, while Mackynsie plays several stringed instruments but focuses on the violin. As singers, Austin specializes in Hank Williams songs and Mackynsie favors Western swing.

The siblings have won youth competitions in Oklahoma and Nashville, and perform regularly at music festivals across the state. 

Bryon, who sings and plays guitar, is a veteran of several Oklahoma bands including “The Runnin’ Kind,” which plays most Saturday nights at the American Legion Hall in Tecumseh. 

Admission is free to the Arcadia Round Barn but donations are accepted. The Round Barn is located six miles east of Interstate 35 on Historical Route 66 and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
