ROBIN AND LINDA WILLIAMS
7 p.m., Christ Episcopal Church. $17.50.

Few names in acoustic folk music are bigger than Robin and Linda Williams. The acclaimed husband and wife duo honed their skills at Nashville open mics and songwriters' workshops in the early '70s, before catching their first break, when they secured a spot on Garrison Keillor's “A Prairie Home Companion” radio show. For years, they appeared on the show as many as a dozen times a year, and they appeared, prominently, in the film version of “A Prairie Home Companion” in 2006. With more than 15 albums to their credit, they've had their songs covered by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Tom T. Hall and the Seldom Scene. The duo comes to town in support of “Radio Songs,” an album that collects 19 performances from “A Prairie Home Companion.” For more information, call 375-2342. LM.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
