A quartet from Northwest Arkansas, Arkansauce creates an eclectic style of bluegrass, folk, country, blues, and funk music. The history of this band began in 2011 in Fayetteville, where the founding members started writing music. After a couple of years they released their first album, Hambone. Their most popular tracks include "Paralyzed" and "Mulberry Mountain." Arkansauce will be kicking off the summer series with the first performance. Come check it out and you may find yourself returning every Thursday for the remainder of the summer.
The Bryan Titus Trio
The Bryan Titus Trio is another band that creates a mixed style of music. Their songs are a blend of rock and roll, country, gospel, and blues. In 2013 Bryan Titus, the lead singer, hiked the Appalachian Trail and his music today is greatly influenced by this experience. If you don't make it to any of the other five performances, this band will be playing the final show of the summer series, and it is sure to make you want to come back next year.
