Mr. Big’s Bluegrass Family Reunion is back! Joe McClung – or Mr. Big as he’s known around our town – wants to share the traditional music of his childhood with as many people as possible.
“I wanted to do something like what the old-timers played – fiddles and mandos. It’s my idea of what traditional music in the Ozarks, in Eureka Springs, was – how I remember it,” McClung says.
In this spirit of sharing, the festival includes free, live music in Basin Spring Park from noon until 5 p.m.; “very reasonable tickets” to the performances on Friday and Saturday at 7:00pm at the Auditorium; and a pickin’ party each night after the shows. “People will love it if they come and listen. It’s therapy for your ears and your soul.”
The Tall Pines is just 5 minutes from all this great music, and we have several options available this weekend!
