In a little over a month, the sounds of jazz, blues and gospel will kickoff Tulsa's annual Juneteenth Music Festival.

Wednesday, the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of fame announced the stars of the show. This year's lineup includes Grady Nichols, Krik Whalum and Wayman Tisdale. The annual festival will also feature two boys, Robert Burrell and Corey Bledsoe, better known as the dancing duo. They're 11-year-old and have won several awards for their performances.

The dancing duo and several other great acts will take the Juneteenth stage on June 19th and 20th. This year's festival will be at the Tulsa Convention Center.

Tickets go on sale May 10th, at Carson Attraction ticket outlets. For more information call the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame at 596-1001.
