The Secret Sisters Alysse Gafkjen

Just when you think the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is done announcing things, they have another surprise up their sleeves. This time, it’s a concert series, spanning the entire 2023-2024 academic year. Though absent any Arkansas musicians, the schedule of nearly-monthly shows they’re bringing to AMFA is robust, with much Southern representation and a healthy dose of jazz, soul, blues and singer-songwriter sensibilities.

All the concerts will take place in the Performing Arts Theater, which resembles the old space but has been updated in the way of sound, light and seating alongside the rest of AMFA’s massive renovations.


Here’s the full line-up:

Don Bryant featuring The Bo-Keys on September 14, 2023

Magos Herrera on October 12, 2023

The Secret Sisters on November 9, 2023

John Fullbright on December 7, 2023

Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band on February 1, 2024

The Rumble featuring Chief Joseph Boudreaux, Jr. on March 7, 2024

Sunny War on March 28, 2024

The Brother Brothers on April 25, 2024

Season tickets are $349 for nonmembers and $309 for members and go on sale on Friday, May 26. They will be available here, alongside more information about the performers. Individual tickets will be announced at a later date.
