| Sande Caplin |

For Immediate release.

Saturday October 11th 11-7 pm The Historic Linger Lodge and Gator Productions presents the 2nd annual Braden River Kayak and Music Fest. The music line-up will include local favorites and international touring artists. This fest is being produced by two local musicians Steve Arvey aka “Stone Crab Steve” and Scotty Rexroat Aka “Treble Hook”.. Both of them are involved with community organizations and help support the local music community..  “Musicians need bigger places to play in the 941 area” says Arvey…Arvey and Scott also support younger musicians in their events because it is hard for them to find places to perform…This year they have a group of musicians 13-17 years old named Steel Relic from the 941 area. Local Country inspired favorite Kim Betts is on the bill doing a acoustic country set. The Cottin Pickin Blues Brothers are a band that only plays Cigar Box Guitar’s featuring Ed Wright, Aaron Fowler and Steve Arvey, Local Rockers Karen Klarich and The Big Bad Wolves will have you up and dancing, One man band Rick Hatfield is a national touring songwriter and Harmonica player, Rebecca Bird and Steve Holbrook will be making their debut as a duo,  Whistling Tom will be doing his unique show, Treble Hook ‘s Folk and Medicine Show will be closing out the show with all of your Florida favorite songs.

 The gates will open at 9 am to let people start Kayaking on the Braden River. We will have Kayaks available for rent for that day.  The event will also feature many local vendors. The cost of this fest will be $15 and will include a free sandwich and beer tasting from Sarasota’s Big Top Brewing Company. This festival was produced by musicians and all proceeds will be going to the musicians.  For more information about the event go to the linger lodge web-site at
