Ozark Moun­tain Mu­sic Fes­ti­val Jan. 18-21

The Weekly Vista - - News -

The 2018 Ozark Moun­tain Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, bet­ter known as OzMoMu and an “out­door mu­sic fes­ti­val held in­doors,” an­nounced its head­lin­ers. Tall Tall Trees from Ashville, N.C., and Car­rie Na­tion & The Speakeasy from Lawrence, Kan., will be per­form­ing on Fri­day and Satur­day nights, re­spec­tively.

Tall Tall Trees web­site states that Mike Savino, who tours un­der the moniker Tall Tall Trees, has re­shaped the land­scape of what is pos­si­ble with a banjo. “He breaks down the banjo into its most ba­sic it­er­a­tion, re­mind­ing au­di­ences that the banjo is, at root, a drum. Cou­pled with his mas­tery of elec­tronic ef­fects, loops, toy ray guns, and heaps of spon­ta­neous cre­ativ­ity, Tall Tall Trees has been en­cap­su­lat­ing au­di­ence mem­bers world­wide with his mys­ti­fy­ing solo shows.”

From its own web­site comes this over­view of OzMoMu’s other head­liner, “Car­rie Na­tion & The Speakeasy is a high-en­ergy ‘Brass ‘n’ Grass’ sex­tet from Wi­chita, Kan. The band, whose sound has been de­scribed as ‘a stage­coach in over­drive,’ has brought its eclec­tic blend of bluegrass, ska, punk and Dix­ieland to packed clubs, base­ments and fes­ti­vals across the U.S. since its in­cep­tion in the spring of 2007.”

OzMoMu en­ters its fifth suc­cess­ful year of pre­sent­ing Amer­i­cana and roots mu­sic within a four-day week­end with a full sched­ule of bands. The full lineup will be set and published some­time in De­cem­ber. All per­for­mances will be on stages in the 1905 Basin Park Ho­tel, lo­cated in the mid­dle of Eureka Springs down­town en­ter­tain­ment district. The pop­u­lar Late Night Jam on both Fri­day and Satur­day nights will be held in nearby Chelsea’s Cor­ner Cafe & Bar.
