Kevin and Gus Kerby on AETN

Posted By on Wed, Nov 9, 2011 at 11:50 AM

Good stuff here with much beloved local troubadour Kevin Kerby talking about his history of playing music in Little Rock and of him playing AETN's "On the Front Row" with his son, Gus, helping out on fiddle.

You can see more from "AETN Presents: On the Front Row with Kevin Kerby + Battery" Friday, Nov. 11 at 6:30 p.m. on AETN.

More on the premiere on the jump.

CONWAY, Ark. (AETN) — “AETN Presents: On the Front Row With Kevin Kerby + Battery” will

premiere on the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) Friday, Nov. 11, at 6:30 p.m.

“AETN Presents: On the Front Row” is part of AETN Arts Fridays, featuring world class arts and

culture programming and locally produced series.


Kevin Kerby + Battery features entertaining, energetic rock ‘n’ roll and the honest songwriting style

of lead singer, Kevin Kerby. The band often helps bridge the gap between themselves and the audience

with their witty banter and humble demeanor. Battery consists of Geoff Curran, guitars; Joshua Bentley,

bass; and Marcus Lowe, drums and backup vocals.


Kerby’s previous band Mulehead was a popular staple of the Central Arkansas independent music

scene in the ’90s and was featured in the 2007 documentary film “Towncraft” about the vibrant

underground music movement during that period.


Kevin Kerby + Battery is signed to Little Rock-based Max Recordings.

“AETN Presents: On the Front Row with Kevin Kerby + Battery” repeats Sunday, Nov. 13, at

midnight and Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 6:30 p.m.


Also airing Nov. 11 at 9 p.m. will be PBS Arts from Chicago “American Masters: Bill T. Jones:

A Good Man.” Follow award-winning director/choreographer Bill T. Jones’s intense creative journey

as he leads his company in the creation of “Fondly Do We Hope...Fervently Do We Pray,” an original

dance-theater piece in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s bicentennial. Anna Deavere Smith hosts. “Bill T.

Jones: A Good Man” is a co-production of A Good Man Film LLC, Kartemquin Films, Independent

Television Service (ITVS), Thirteen’s “American Masters” for WNET, and Media Process Group, with

the cooperation of the Ravinia Festival. The evening’s presentation is in collaboration with PBS member

station WTTW.


“Bill T. Jones is so intense,” Lawrence Hamilton, cultural affairs director at Philander Smith College

and Broadway performer who has worked with Jones, said. “To be good at anything in the arts you have

to work hard at whatever you do.


“His body of work proves that he's one of the greatest in his field.”
