An afternoon and evening of free music from some of the best Red Dirt Music has to offer, as well as some of its newest discoveries, will kick off at 2 p.m. Saturday in Heritage Plaza with Arizona-based Shari Rowe.

Rowe is an up-and-coming country music performer touring the country to promote her new singles. Her single “Southern Spells” was released to country radio in May following her successful release of “Take That Shot.” She has opened for Three Dog Night, Parmalee, Diamond Rio, Aaron Carter, Aaron Watson, Tracy Lawrence and Aaron Tippin.

Listeners will hear a bluegrass and country-infused sound from Rowe and her band when they take the stage Saturday during the Red Dirt Black Gold Festival in downtown Artesia.
