Still on the Hill is a national and international folk duo from Arkansas that has been described as “Ambassadors of the Ozarks” for the work they do to preserve a rich culture that is quickly disappearing. Kelly and Donna Mulhollan utilize a colorful tapestry of unusual folk instruments to bring their Ozark stories to life. 

They will present a collection of original songs that document one of our state’s crowning jewels - The Buffalo River. The program, entitled Still a River, uncovers the rich stories behind many of the familiar landmarks along the Buffalo. It has been performed to wide acclaim across the state and this will be the first performance in Hot Springs. A free Still a River CD will be given to the first 100 attendees. 

Seating will be first-come,
first-served.
Sunday, August 19th | 1:30 p.m.
