Horton Records 5th Annual Rock’n Folk’n Chili Cook-Off

Jacob Tovar and his daughter

The Tulsa music scene wouldn’t be the same without Horton Records. The non-profit organization founded by Brian Horton supports local and regional artists and gives them the tools to reach their goals and broaden their reach. Horton Records has helped local musicians in more ways than promoting music. Earlier this year, many local musicians had the opportunity to perform at the Folk Alliance International Conference thanks to Horton as well as the George Kaiser Foundation. Horton Records has helped send local talent to that international stage for four years.  The Folk Alliance is an amazing networking opportunity for musicians and professionals in the music industry. Sending Oklahoma’s best in folk to the Folk Alliance is just one of the great things that Horton has done and continues to do for the local music community.

The record label provides support for booking, promotion, management, and distribution. As a non-profit, it takes a lot to make it all happen. Horton Records organizes shows like the Rock’n Folk’n Chili Cook-off to raise money for the organization. The event consists of all you can eat chili and an awesome lineup. What more could you want? There will be performances by Jacob Tovar, Levi Parham, Branjae, as well as a tribute to Tulsa music from John Fullbright, Paul Benjamin, Jesse Aycock, and more. You can also win door prizes and participate in a silent auction. It’s all happening on Saturday, November 10 at Cain’s Ballroom.

You can buy your tickets on the Cain’s website or at the door. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Military and students get a discount with tickets at $12. Or, if you donate any non-perishable food item to benefit the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma or donate a cost the day of the show you will receive $15 admission and a free raffle entry!
