Explorers of Ozark Music Concert: Betse & Clarke and The Creek Rocks

Walker Community Room

Join us on Sunday, May 28 at 2:00 pm for Explorers of Ozark Music: Betse & Clarke and The Creek Rocks.  This free concert takes the audience through a musical adventure.  Fayetteville native Betse Ellis plays powerful and beautiful old time fiddle tunes, sings traditional Ozark songs, and shares her own songs and stories with themes relating to the human experience.  Clarke Wyatt, is an engaging finger-style banjo player, drawing inspiration from great traditional banjoists of earlier decades such as Mike Seeger and John Hartford.  His melodies match the fiddle, and also build rhythmic interest to embrace the music's character.  Their debut full-length album "River Still Rise" (2016) was described by Scott Tichenor of Banjo Cafe as  "A stunning collection that forces old-time music to take a fresh look at where its been and where its headed."
