The Cons of Formant will serenade South on Main guests tonight (July 18) with their blend of folk, Americana, and bluegrass.
The show begins at 8 pm. Purchase advance tickets for $7 or pay $10 at the door. Tickets do not guarantee a seat. Please call (501) 244-9660 to reserve a table.
Combining backgrounds from old soul-filled hymns and rock & roll to blues and bluegrass, The Cons of Formant have established themselves as a core part of the Americana & Folk Rock movement. Their diverse blend of styles has created a beautiful balance of sound that is uniquely their own.
After releasing their debut self-titled album, “The Cons of Formant,” The Cons began work on their sophomore album, “Tributaries.” This second album intentionally combines influences from their diverse musical backgrounds, personal life experiences and the reflections of their own journeys to create something true and unique. “Tributaries” was received with overwhelming support and continues to gain momentum.
Both albums are for sale in hard copy or on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
Cindy Arsaga, Joe Morzuch, and Adam Posnak work in three distinctly different media. Each artist derives inspiration from everyday experience.
Arsaga, who lives in Fayetteville, uses photography to capture images of daily experience and employs a process of layering encaustic (hot wax) pigment on her photographs.
Morzuch, who lives in Bono, captures beauty in the most mundane objects to create dancing color and light with oil paint on canvas.
Posnak, who lives in West Fork, makes terracotta pottery, the decoration of which reflects an interest in various traditional systems of belief, particularly those of West Africa and the African Diaspora.
For the “Year of Arkansas Beer” this month HAM is featuring Apple Blossom Brewing Company.
Hazy Morning Coffee Stout made with Arsaga’s Coffee – This beer was gently aged on thirty pounds of an Arabica blend roasted by Arsaga’s Coffee Roasters in Fayetteville.
