A compact creativity festival in the Lower Ramble. Presented in Partnership with the University of Arkansas Department of Music.
Musical Act: Smokey and the Mirror
Smokey & The Mirror is husband+wife duo Bryan and Bernice Hembree. Based out of Fayetteville, Arkansas, the Smokey & The Mirror have toured nationally/internationally over the past decade, including a touring collaboration and album with Denmark’s The Sentimentals. The band has also supported tours/concerts for The Wood Brothers, I’m With Her, Elephant Revival, John Fullbright, and more. They play most often as a duo, but also regularly collaborate with luthier/musician Bayard Blain (3 Penny Acre/Bayard Guitars), and drummer/songwriter Ryan Pickop (Nature & Madness). Whatever the configuration, the interplay of their two unique voices coupled with their provoking and engaging songs form the foundation of Smokey & The Mirror.
Artist Galen Harp creates a massive 300-pound sand painting in the park through juggling. Come join in the fun!
