The first season of the Weekend Starts free outdoor music series continues from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22, with Smokey & The Mirror. The concert is at the Lower Ramble, across West Avenue from the Fayetteville Public Library. Weekend Starts is a collaboration between the City of Fayetteville and the U of A Department of Music.

Smokey & The Mirror is husband-and-wife duo Bryan and Bernice Hembree. The group has toured nationally and internationally over the past decade, including a touring collaboration and album with Denmark's The Sentimentals.

In addition to the music, Weekend Starts will showcase Galen Harp doing a large-scale sand painting at the intersection of the trail and the greenway in the Ramble. 

The Ramble is the newest part of the growing Fayetteville arts corridor. There is convenient parking in any of the Fayetteville Public Library's lots. Feel free to bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs. The concert will be on the Gregg Avenue side of The Ramble. 

In the event of inclement weather, updates regarding cancellations or rescheduling will be provided on the city website. We encourage attendees to check for updates before heading to the event. For more information, go to Fayetteville Arts and Culture.
