Whew! What a couple of weeks we
have had. Being from the upper Midwest, winter weather doesn't seem out of place this time of year, but seriously, any time you get three rounds in a row of winter storms AND they include all sorts of wintry precipitation, well, that starts moving beyond fun for most everyone. Thankfully we are launching into a weekend of more moderate February weather. Might
just be a great time to get out and
take in some local, live music!
This week we have a new article about the upcoming Celebration of Support for Ocie Fisher. Ocie has been a staple of Ozark Blues Society's Blues in the Schools presentations over the years and a beloved performer in Northwest Arkansas and beyond. Read on below for more information and the link for tickets.
The UA Department of Music's Black Music Symposium has kicked off and runs through Sunday. Check out the article below for information about the various presentations that are available
as part of this event. Many performances and events open to the public. And don't forget to keep an eye on the upcoming events listed at the end of the calendar. There is something there for everyone!
Always remember, this is YOUR newsletter! Please consider sharing dates that for your favorite artists that are not included in the community calendars we use. We would also love to have a local live blues music reporter to share stories for the newsletter. Many bands have time challenges in submitting information and this would be a great way for fans to show them some love! Please send questions, information, feedback, and suggestions our way. Just click on Sandy's email address below.
We appreciate our readers and want
to see your ideas included!
