Musical Group - Still On the Hill - to Perform “Once A River” Songs at Hobbs State Park – Free to the Public
An exciting project concerning Beaver Lake and its watershed is occurring in Northwest Arkansas. The popular and award-winning folk duo, Still on the Hill, has written and recorded an entire CD of songs to create awareness of the lake’s history and collective stories.
The project is being made possible through a collaborative grant from the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts, plus four northwest Arkansas groups – the Association for Beaver Lake Environment (A.B.L.E.), Ozarks Water Watch, Beaver Water District, and Beaver Watershed Alliance, with special additional sponsorship through the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History.
Still on the Hill will perform 10 free concerts during 2014 in watershed communities, and will give away 100 CDs (one per family) at each performance on a first come, first served basis. These concerts, in addition to being entertaining and educational, will instill a sense of ownership for the protection of this valuable resource which supplies drinking water and quality of life for one in seven Arkansans! Mark your calendar.
