'AETN Presents: On the Front Row' back tonight

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2010 at 2:07 PM


AETN's twist on "Austin City Limits" kicks off its Fall 2010 season tonight at 6:30 p.m. with their Damn Bullets installment and continues for the next three Wednesdays with performances by Go Fast; Bonnie Montgomery and Montgomery Trucking; and Wayland Holyfield and Friends.

Press release after the jump.

The Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) delivers a new season of arts and cultural programming beginning Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 6:30 p.m. and will repeat immediately following “Austin City Limits” on Saturdays at midnight.

“On the Front Row” debuts Nov. 3 on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and continues through Nov. 24. Artists performing are:

• Damn Bullets, Nov. 3. A critically-lauded blend of early rock and roll, ragtime blues, folk, bluegrass and country brings both classical training and folk sensibilities together with their three-part harmonies.

• Go Fast, Nov. 10. An exciting spin on classic Southern-rock blended with proto-rock, hot-rod culture and monster movies influenced by the likes of Lynyrd Skynryd and Mountain.

• Bonnie Montgomery and Montgomery Trucking, Nov. 17. A combination of guitar, kazoo and mandolin that has been described as a cross between country, hillbilly and folk. The program will also feature an excerpt from the short-length opera “Billy Blythe,” about the cultural landscape that shaped former president Bill Clinton’s youth.

• Wayland Holyfield and Friends, Nov. 24. Native Arkansan and composer of the popular ballad “Arkansas (You Run Deep in Me)” and Grammy nominee joins acclaimed singers and songwriters—Mark Wright, Randy Goodrum and Shawn Camp—for an intimate performance featuring the stories behind the songs.

“AETN Presents” features a variety of arts and cultural subjects and encompasses the series “On the Same Page” and “On the Front Row.” Previously included in the series have been the Arkansas Acoustic Festival; performances by the Cate Brothers, Trout Fishing in America, 3 Penny Acre, Dale Hawkins, The Claudia Burson Trio, The Salty Dogs and Epiphany; and authors Buzz Bissinger, Wells Tower, Billy Collins, John T. Edge and Kenneth L. Smith.
