This weekend is going to be filled with opportunities to catch some great folk music acts. With the Arkansas Folk Festival happening this weekend in Mountain View, there’s no excuse for missing the chance to hear some of the best folk musicians in the world.
If you don’t get your fill this weekend or you can’t make it to Mountain View, never fear! Paragould will be hosting an exciting bluegrass band on Monday after all the excitement of the weekend.
David Davis and the Warrior River Boys will be playing a concert as part of the KASU 91.9 FM’s Bluegrass Monday concert series.
Davis is an Alabama native who has fronted the Warrior River Boys, singing and playing mandolin, since 1984. He’s got a storied background in bluegrass, too. His father and grandfather were both singers and players, while his uncle, Cleo Davis, was part of Bill Monroe and Blue Grass Boys.
He has been inducted into the Alabama Bluegrass Hall of Fame and the America’s Ole-Time Country Music Hall of Fame.
The Warrior River Boys includes Robert Montgomery, Marty Hays and Stan Wilemon. Montgomery plays banjo, Hays plays bass and Wilemon plays guitar. All of the band members are vocalists, as well.
For the Paragould performance, the band will be joined by fiddler Billy Hurt.
The concert will be held at the Collins Theater in Paragould, and doors open at 6 p.m. Seating is first-come, first-served. While there is no admission fee, a donation is suggested.
The Bluegrass Monday series are scheduled for the fourth Monday night of each month.
