Winter is the perfect time to explore the natural stone shelters where native Arkansans once lived
On April 19, Phillips County native Levon Helm died after a decade-plus fight with throat cancer. Helm got his start playing rockabilly in the Southern United States and in Canada with Ronnie Hawkins & The Hawks. The Hawks went on to back up Bob Dylan as he went electric and eventually became The Band, a group almost singlehandedly created what's now called Americana — a blend of rock, folk, blues, country and gospel. In recent years, he'd hosted Midnight Rambles at his Woodstock, N.Y., home, playing music with family and friends.
