NOTES IN NATURE (RANGER-GUIDED TRAIL CONCERT SERIES)
Low Key Arts in cooperation with National Park Service, Visit Hot Springs and Northwoods Trails presents Notes in Nature Ranger-Guided Trail Concert Series, a new program of free outdoor performances beginning summer 2021. Featuring intimate music coupled with invigorating hikes and a wealth of forest facts presented by a genuine National Park ranger, it's hard to imagine a better way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of beautiful Hot Springs National Park. Hikes are approximately one hour in length, with performances running between 60 and 90 minutes. Attendees of all ages are encouraged to take part.
SATURDAY JUNE 12, 2021 - 1:00PM - FREE
Notes in Nature continues on Saturday, June 12, 2021 with a performance by northwest Arkansas' wandering troubadour, the one and only Dylan Earl. In his own words, "I’m from where I woke up this morning. I write the songs that come to mind and struggle with the ones that don’t. I find humor in misconceptions and solace in laughter, love in the street and fire in the eyes of the marginalized. I prefer facts over alternate facts. I’m here to shoot you straight, although sometimes I fire from the hip." The 1.5 mile National Park Ranger-guided hike begins at 1:00 PM at Fordyce Bathhouse (369 Central Ave.) Dylan Earl will perform an acoustic set live at 2:30 PM at The Happy Hollow (231 Fountain St.). The hike is optional.
SUNDAY MAY 16, 2021 - 1:00PM - FREE

Brian Martin will perform an acoustic set live at 2:00 PM at Bethel Lake.
