On Friday, August 13, 2021, come enjoy the 6th concert in the Eureka Springs “Summer Music Series in Basin Park”, featuring Opal Agafia with special guest Red Oak Ruse! Free to the public, the show will be held in Basin Spring Park, beginning at 5:00pm.
Opal Agafia, based in Fayetteville, Arkansas, embodies the sounds of the Ozark Mountains: a little soul, a little roots, a little rock-and-roll, a little old-timey swing – and a lot of heart. Drawing from many genres, Opal blends the best elements of soul, blues, jazz, gospel, country, swing, and traditional mountain music into a sound that captures the past and boldly pushes ahead.
Opal’s voice is packed with power and emotion; her lyrics are sophisticated yet accessible. The band provides a consistently tight backdrop that pushes every song forward, compelling listeners to pay close attention, lest they miss a single minute of this show. The result is music that’s irresistible, no matter the listener’s background.
