Arkansas Sounds Presents: a Ronnie Hawkins tribute
Join us every Thursday for Arkansas Sounds Presents, a free online watch party of Arkansas music and culture.
On Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m. CST, CALS Arkansas Sounds presents a tribute to legendary Arkansas rock and roll giant, Ronnie Hawkins! Ronnie Hawkins is a rock and roll and country singer, songwriter and actor who rose fame in the mid-1950s with his band, The Hawks. As a bandleader, Hawkins has been a notable talent scout and mentor to many musicians, including Pat Travers, Robbie Robertson, Richard Manuel, Garth Hudson, Rick Danko, and fellow Arkansans Roy Buchanan and Levon Helm. Hawkins, a long-time resident of Canada, was awarded The Order of Canada in 2013 and he is a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. Our playlist celebrates the legacy of this Huntsville, Arkansas native with rare performances and interviews.
