3 musical performers at ranch’s annual Holiday Evening Dec. 14

       Live music from three area performers will enliven the Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site's annual “Holiday Evening” Saturday, Dec. 14 from 4 to 8 p.m.
       The event will also offer a barn dance (4 to 6 p.m.), blacksmith demonstrations, wagon rides, an 1800s-era St. Nicholas, guided lantern-lit walks to the Galloway Cabin and period festivities at the seasonally decorated Rock Ledge House and Orchard House.
       Admission is $8 for adults, with discounts for others. The event is free to members of the Living History Association (LHA), the ranch's volunteer friends group.
       Parking for the city-owned ranch is off Gateway Road at 30th Street.
       Mark Gardner, a long-time ranch volunteer and banjo player who has recorded several CDs, will perform with his son Vance on violin in the barn from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
       The Dulcimer Club is scheduled from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Rock Ledge House.
       Jody Adams, another area musician and ranch supporter with multiple CDs to his credit, will play in the Carriage House from 4 to 6 p.m., and will “wander” after that to other ranch locations, Rock Ledge manager Andy Morris said.
       For information on the event or becoming an LHA member, call 578- 6777.
