Sod Farm Festival organizer takes page from Vaudeville to raise funds for Nicaraguan schools

Speaking of creativity:
Music lovers in Sheridan County will be able to get their fill with 16 acts set to take the stage at this year's Sod Farm Festival to benefit Project Schoolhouse, which builds schools and water systems in Central America. This year's goal is to raise $35,000 for an entire school in Nicaragua. 
Event Organizer Tab Barker says that in order to get through 16 acts in the allotted time, he's taken a page from the retro-Vaudeville acts he's seen at Sheridan's WYO Theater. Listen to his unique method. 
Event headliner is the band Seu Jacinto from Austin, Texas, which Barker is a member of.
The Sod Farm Festival will take place from 3 to 10 p.m. at the Green Carpet Sod Farm West of Sheridan. To get there take Big Goose Road until you hit Owl Creek Road, then take a right and follow the road until it ends Tickets for the Sod Farm Festival are $20 and can be purchased in advance at the WYO Theater, or at the gate Saturday evening.
