Clarksville, Ark. ---The University of the Ozarks will present an evening of traditional bluegrass music as the The Old School Bluegrass Band performs at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 23, in the Walton Fine Arts Center on the U of O campus.

The event is the first in the 2004-2005 Walton Arts & Ideas Series. Tickets for the concert are $10 each and can be purchased the evening of the show or by calling 479-979-1346. The Old School Bluegrass Band, based out of Central Arkansas, has been playing bluegrass music since 1990 and performs 30-40 engagements each year throughout the region. The majority of the music played by the band is traditional bluegrass, much of it coming from the masters of the early to mid-20th century, including Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs and the Stanley Brothers. The four-man band includes banjoist Bill Anderson, mandolinist Bill Nesbitt, guitarist Danny Trawick and multi-instrumentalist Glenn Wardo. The band has recorded several CDs, including a recently released live album of their music and comedy compiled from various shows in 2003. “Whether it’s the bright tinkling strum of fingers playing a banjo or the blend of voices in multi-part unity, the sound of bluegrass is bright, timeless and full of rejoicing,” according to a news release by the band. “This will be an evening for the whole family to enjoy.”
