FRIDAY 2/21. White Water Tavern. 8:30 p.m.
Playwright, fiddler, folklorist and University of Arkansas grad Willi Carlisle is, among other things, an organizer for the First Annual Queer and Trans Oldtime Music Gathering, and he’s bringing his studied, storied blend of theater and folk to the stage at White Water Tavern in February. Joining Carlisle are two of the biggest vocal juggernauts the state of Arkansas can boast these days: Adam Faucett and Jamie Lou Connolly of Jamie Lou & The Hullabaloo. Cancel whatever you have planned and don’t come late, lest you miss any exquisite third of this swoonworthy lineup.
