A musical concert by the duet known as “Arkansaw Folks” will feature Jim playing the mountain dulcimer and Charlotte playing the guitar and harmonica. They have performed in schools, libraries, churches and retirement centers across Arkansas.
They are frequent players in Mountain View where they have been featured at the Jimmy Driftwood Barn, Arkansas Folk Center and Mountain View Courthouse Square, as well as many historic museums, state parks and folk festivals. Their traditional folk music pays tribute to the strong connection between Arkansas, the country’s history and American musical heritage.
