Bikes, Blues & BBQ 2009: Live Music Schedule

With Bikes Blues & BBQ just a few days away, lots of folks are wondering exactly what kind of blues to expect here in Fayetteville. Although the range is pretty wide, the blues isn’t the only kind of live music scheduled this week. And Dickson Street isn’t the only place to hear it.

This year, there are three official live music locations. First is the Main Stage which is located in the Walton Arts Center parking lot. Then there’s the Southern Stage out at the Randal Tyson Track Center. Both of these offer free live music from Wednesday through Saturday.

New for this year is a partnership with the Arkansas Music Pavilion (AMP) that provides two nights of live music. Leading the lineup at the AMP is Blackfoot and Molly Hatchet on Thursday night, followed by The Marshall Tucker Band with special guests Oreo Experience — a tribute to Jimi Hendrix and Steve Pryor on Friday night. Gates open at 5pm and concerts start between 7:30 and 8pm. Admission to these concerts is $10 per night, with a portion of the proceeds going to BBBBQ and other local charities.
