KEITH SYKES HOT SPRINGS WEEKEND
8 p.m., Arlington Hotel, Hot Springs. $30-$50.

For the third year running, Memphis singer/songwriter Keith Sykes, who co-wrote Jimmy Buffett's “Volcano” as well as songs recorded by everyone from John Prine to the Judds, gathers all his songwriter buddies in Spa City for a big sing-along. This year, the group includes Grammy winner Richard Leigh, most famous for penning Crystal Gayle's “Don't It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue”; Buzz Cason, who wrote “Everlasting Love” and who's surely the only songwriter to have his songs recorded by The Beatles, U2, Pearl Jam, Gloria Estefan and Jimmy Buffett; Susan Marshall, whose 2009 album, “In the Red,” features a guest appearance by Lucinda Williams, and a host of other regional songwriters — Larry Joe Taylor, Jimmy Davis, Jed Zimmerman, Nancy Apple, David Couser, Grace Askew and Delta Joe Sanders. All will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday. At 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, “Bloody Marys with Jed and Joe” features Zimmerman and Sanders. And the group reassembles Saturday night for another 8 p.m. performance. Tickets are $50 for both nights, or $30 for one.
