Music and Entertainment

Arkansas is thriving with southern music, art centers, independent film festivals and cultural expression.

Art centers, museums and galleries in Eureka Springs and throughout the state display works of both the masters and up-and-coming artists. Located in the scenic Ozark Mountains, Mountain View is the "Folk Music Capital of the World" where visitors can enjoy authentic southern music traditions.

The rich history of the Arkansas Delta and the blues music that rose from the fertile soil is highlighted with the Arkansas Blues Trail.  Legendary radio stations KFFA in Helena and KWEM in West Memphis played important roles in shaping the careers of many of the blues greats who began or established themselves in Arkansas.  Both stations are still going strong. The annual Arkansas King Biscuit Blues Festival is held each October in Helena-West Helena.

Also in the eastern part of the state is the Arkansas Rock 'N" Roll Highway 67. In the 1950s, clubs and joints along this stretch of road from Newport to Pocahontas played host to Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Conway Twitty, Sonny Burgess and Billy Lee Riley.  Towns include Pocahontas, Newport and Walnut Ridge.

Performances by Broadway touring companies frequently pass through our cities, and the state is host to several successful independent film festivals, including the world-class Hot Springs documentary film festival. For classical music buffs, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra performs year-round.
