Whispering Willows Concert

Saturday, December 7, 6:30pm

Join The Whispering Willows for a night of Country Folk music at Ozark Folkways in Winslow, AR on Saturday, December 7th at 6:30 pm. They will be joined by renowned Ozark clarinetist, Patti Steel.

The Whispering Willows bring to focus the personal and heartfelt singing and original songwriting of traditional country music arranged with traditional fiddle and flat picked guitar and rooted in the sounds of the Ozark mountains. They are currently recording their first full debut album that is set for release in early 2020.

Admission is free, but a donation of $10 will support the musicians and the mission of Ozark Folkways to preserve, develop, instruct, and celebrate the arts, crafts, and music of our region.

Community Playdate

Fourth Sunday of every month, 2-3pm

For infants and toddlers, aged 0 – 4 years

We’ll read a few books, swap stories (or clothes) and hang out!

This event is free and open to the public (but you’re welcome to stick a couple of bucks in the tip jar to help support the mission of Ozark Folkways to preserve, develop, instruct, and celebrate the arts, crafts, and music of our region.)

Jam with the Squirrels

Attention, Squirrels! For December through March the Squirrel Jam Fourth Sunday Open Jam will be taking place from 3-5pm, NOT 5-7pm. We will resume the normal hours in April.

Fourth Sunday of every month, 5-7pm 3-5pm

Presented by Winslow Squirrel Jam

Join Winslow Squirrel Jam for an evening of music in the front room at Ozark Folkways. Bring an instrument, a singing voice, or just be prepared to do a little toe-tapping and hand-clapping. The songs are all familiar favorites, and lyrics and chord symbols will be projected on the big screen; everybody is encouraged to join in!

Most of the jammers have only been playing their instruments for a couple of years or less, so this is not a group that is going to intimidate a beginner — at the same time, experienced players will find themselves in a welcoming environment where their ability is recognized and appreciated. There’s something for everybody.

If you like, bring a snack and a beverage; this is not a concert, but rather a gathering of friends and neighbors looking to enjoy an evening of music and good company.

Admission is free to the public, although we encourage you to drop a few bucks in the tip jar to help pay the bills. For more information, just give us a call at 479-634-3791 or email us at info@ozarkfolkways.org.
