Those who love country, bluegrass and gospel music, as well as a little Hee Haw-type comedy will want to attend the Dogwood Jamboree on Father’s Day weekend.

“The show will be filled with comedy and proves to be a wonderful evening of entertainment,” said show producer, entertainer and emcee Dan Manuel. “The show in March drew over 1,200 people — a near capacity crowd.”

The jamboree will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Palestine Civic Center.

The show will feature several artists including television actress and vocalist Mandolin Wiessner, 12, of Dallas.

Wiessner has appeared on “Barney and Friends” and has modeled for JCPenney. She also has been featured on a national Applebee’s commercial.

“She has a beautiful voice and people will love her,” Manuel said.

Others scheduled to perform are returning artists Carissa Amberly and George Lester, as well as regular artists including Manuel, the Ray Brothers, Joe Hancock, Sissy Perry, Tammy Parrish and Chloe Collins.

Appearing for the first time will be recording artist Sheila Wheat.

“Sheila is a tremendous artist and fiddle player. She will bring the fans to their feet. She and her husband entertain all over the United States,” Manuel said.

Theme for the show is “Do You Remember These?”

“People are urged to buy their tickets early because a lot of tour groups are coming from out of town and we will have a great crowd attending,” Manuel said. “This is a good way to treat a father to a memorable weekend.”

Advance tickets are $10. Tickets at the door are $12.50.

Tickets can be purchased at Cavender’s Boot City, Hometown Pharmacy, the Palestine Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and by calling 903-729-7080 or 903-729-5611.
