Musical Connections at the Buffalo National River

In the continuing, year-long celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Buffalo National River, the country’s first national river, the Buffalo National River Partners will present the program “Musical Connections from Scotland to the Ozarks” at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, May 5 at the Tyler Bend amphitheater.

The Crooked Creek Ceili Band will provide the program that builds a musical bridge from Scotland and Ireland to traditional Ozarks bluegrass. You’ll discover the roots of local cultural heritage through traditional instruments and arrangements of familiar and unfamiliar tunes.
This is the first in a series of programs called “Storytellers in the Park: Tales from the Buffalo.” The series will be presented throughout the summer in various locations of the national park, and is made possible by a donation from the Ozarks Wilderness Waterways Club in memory of Harold and Margaret Hedges. The Hedges worked tirelessly to conserve the Buffalo River and played a significant role in the designation of the Buffalo as a National River. It is to honor their memory that “Storytellers in the Park: Tales from the Buffalo” is dedicated.

In case of rain this program will be re-scheduled. For more information, contact Sybil Craig at 870-704-9114 or by email at
