Delicious Southern barbeque from Nut 'N Fancy Grillin served as the perfect compliment to the country and folk music. Many participants arrived early, brought their chairs and found a good seat before settling down to eat mouth-watering barbeque beside a campfire while listening to award-winning music.

SEBRING — Roadside Revue played historic folk songs and hilarious original songs from Florida folk artists at Music in the Park on Saturday, Feb. 17. The close-knit group, comprised of family members and friends, sang their award-winning original songs and other favorites about John Deere tractors and little boys going fishing which reflected life in Florida, especially in the rural areas. Well-known hits such as “Grandma’s Song” and “Small Town Saturday Night” from country artists rounded out the playlist. The melodious vocals blended with the guitar, stand-up acoustic bass, harmonica and banjo for a toe-tapping musical experience.

The band began at folk festivals as “Ron and Bari,” with husband and wife duo Ron and Bari Litschauer. The Litschauers had extensive experience in the music industry and with recording. Soon Dawn Dewitt and Stan Geberer joined them. Both Dewitt and Geberer have won first-place awards for their original songs at Florida folk festivals. Dewitt won first prize in 2010 with her “Withlacoochee Way” original and Geberer in 1993 with his “One More Florida Song.” Geberer is also known as one of the best harmonica players in folk music today.
