If you are looking for something to do this weekend, you have some pretty good choices, and they all involve music.

What kind of music do you like? 

Fan of the fiddle? The Oklahoma State Fiddlers Summer Convention begins today and runs through Saturday at the Lodge at Sequoyah State Park. Whether you play the fiddle or another instrument, all are welcome. Just want to sit and enjoy the music? It's free just to sit in the cool air and enjoy.

Country? Olivia Ooms performs at the Oklahoma Festival of Ballooning at 7: 15 p.m. Friday. Ooms, 16, of Huntington Beach, California, sings, plays acoustic and electric guitar and piano, according to her website.

Folk, blues, and Americana? Singer-songwriter John Fullbright of Okemah will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday. According to Fullbright's website, the Wall Street Journal crowned him as giving one of the year’s 10 best live performances, and his debut album, "From the Ground Up," was nominated for Best Americana Album at the GRAMMY Awards.

And, the Swon Brothers will fit their hometown into their schedule to share their musical talents at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the festival. The musical careers of Zach and Colton Swon took off after their appearance on the fourth season of  "The Voice" on NBC. The brothers also were 2014 CMA Vocal Duo of the Year nominees.

Gospel? If you're a fan of gospel music and would like to help the folks at Webbers Falls Assembly of God recover from the May flooding, a fundraiser is set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Warner First Assembly of God, 206 Third St., in Warner. Performers include the Ruckman's southern gospel trio, The Stevens Family, Saved By Grace Trio, and Mike Davis and the Travelers.
