The Pineywoods Pick’rs, a group of dulcimer-enthusiasts, was formed in 2009.  While the dulcimer is the major instrument of the group, other instruments used in their performances include: the guitar, bass, autoharp, harmonica, recorder, and picking-stick.  The Pick’rs perform old-time Appalachian folk music which originated many years ago in Scotland and England.  This ensemble of mostly retirees plays at local venues, including area festivals.  Look for them on the grounds near Nethery's Antiques.

Milam Settlers Day Brings Early-Days Reenactments to Weekend Festivities

Local actors will give us a glimpse into the "Bad Ol' Days" of Old Town Milam when we had a saloon on every corner, the times were wild, and tempers were hot.  Disputes were often settled by the fastest drawn gun.  Re-creating this, Milam Settlers Day's "Wild West Shoot-out" will provide a fun, family-oriented show at the close of Saturday's festivities.


The Bevil's Rangers, a favorite attraction, will be returning to provide demonstrations of early Texas clothing, blacksmithing, pottery making, basket weaving, and cooking.  These re-enactments will be on both days.
