Tonight at South on Main – Bonnie Montgomery headlines Friendsgiving

som bonnieTonight at 10:00 PM, South on Main has special music for its third-annual Friendsgiving celebration featuring Bonnie Montgomery and Friends!

Come on down for some late night boot-scootin’ with Arkansas’ beloved honky-tonk howler Bonnie Montgomery! There is a $10 cover charge payable in cash only at the door on the night of the show. Music will start at 10:00 PM.

 

Following the release of EPs Cruel (2012) and Joy (2013), Arkansas born and bred Bonnie Montgomery released her self-titled LP in July 2014 on Nathan Howdeshell’s (of Gossip) Portland/Arkansas label Fast Weapons. A classically trained singer whose southern roots run deep, Montgomery has taken her authentic spin on golden-era country/western music through the U.S. and Europe, sharing the stage with Gossip, Shovels and Rope, Robert Ellis, Hayes Carll, Billy Joe Shaver, Turnpike Troubadours, Pokey LaFarge, and Wayne “the Train” Hancock.

Bonnie’s composition of the modern folk opera Billy Blythe, about the childhood of Bill Clinton, previewed in New York, and has earned her the attention of The New YorkerThe Huffington Post, and the London Daily Telegraph. Recent West Coast and upcoming Northeast tour dates will feature her supercharged Little Rock/Austin-based band.
