KASU’s Bluegrass Monday to feature Gravel Yard Bluegrass Band 

Members of The Gravel Yard Bluegrass Band are: Tiffany Turner (left), Titus Turner, Aaron Farris, Chris Denny, Matt Clampit, and Cliff Prowse.

The Gravel Yard Bluegrass Band will perform at the next KASU-FM Bluegrass Monday concert.

The show will be Aug. 23, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Collins Theatre, 120 West Emerson St., in downtown Paragould.

Based in Mountain View, the members of the Gravel Yard Bluegrass Band began gathering and playing music together in 2018 in a gravel lot for their own entertainment. Their regular weekly jam sessions began drawing an audience of music fans, and the group began receiving offers to perform at venues and festivals around the region.

The Gravel Yard Bluegrass Band has performed at the Yadaloo Music Festival in Little Rock, the Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort, the Little Rock Zoo, and at Cabot Fest among others. The band describes its music as “an eclectic style ... with lively originals and a twist on the old stuff.” The group has produced a self-titled CD that includes their versions of numerous bluegrass standards.

Band members include Matt Clampit, guitar; Chris Denny, lead vocals and guitar; Aaron Farris, bass; Cliff Prowse, fiddle, Titus Turner, mandolin; and Tiffany Turner, banjo.

Admission is $10 per person, payable by cash at the door the night of the concert. Everyone aged 18-and-under will be admitted free. Advance tickets can be purchased at www.kasu.org/tickets.

Bluegrass Monday concerts are held on the fourth Monday night of each month.
