Chris Denny to release 'Age Old Hunger;' family festivals slated for fall 

North Little Rock native Christopher Denny is set to release his latest full-length album, “Age Old Hunger,” on Aug. 7 on NYC-based label 00:2:59 Records. Fans of the country-boy crooner will recognize several songs: Five of the 11 tracks are off of his self-titled debut put out last year by Little Rock's Tomato House Records. “Gypsy into a Carpenter,” “All Burned Up,” “When Am I Gonna Realize,” “Time” and “Hearts On Fire” have been reworked on the new one, which was recorded in three days at Jason Weinheimer's studio in downtown Little Rock. Before he takes New York, Denny and the Old Soles, featuring Chris Atwood on upright bass and Marcus Lowe on drums, will play a two-night CD release party at White Water Tavern on Friday, Aug. 24, and Saturday, Aug. 25.

Two family-fun fall festivals in Central Arkansas have been announced: The 2nd annual Maumelle Family Fest and the Arkansas River Family Fest.

The Maumelle festival will take place on Sept. 28-29 at Lake Willastein in Maumelle. The festival runs from 5 p.m.-10 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the gate and will go on sale Aug. 13 at the Maumelle Community Center, Cedar Heights Baptist Church, The Summit Church, The First Methodist Church and Harvest Foods.

The first Arkansas River Family Fest is scheduled for Oct. 6-7 on the North Shore Riverfront Park in downtown North Little Rock. Details about this event weren't available at press time. For information, contact Butch Stone at 744-2220.
