The Arkansas State University-Newport Concert-Lecture Series will wrap up April 5 with a performance by bluegrass artists Posey Hill.
Built around the trio of Doug Burnett and his two oldest daughters, Kristian and Erin, Posey Hill is a fine Americana blend of Arkansas bluegrass, old time and contemporary folk. Usually accompanied by in-law Chuck Hughes, they feature enchanting vocals with tight family harmony and tasteful acoustic instrumentation performing songs for people of all ages to enjoy. More and more they feature their own original material along with many standards. Their influences include Alison Krauss, Patty Loveless, The Trio (Dolly, Emmylou and Linda), the Carter Family, New Grass Revival, the Greencards, Flatt & Scruggs, Dan Fogelberg, Fleetwood Mac, Eagles, Seldom Scene, Beatles, and others. There is no cost for admission and the Friday night performance will get underway at 7:00 p.m. at the ASUN Center for the Arts.
