LIVE! A Music Calendar: Still On The Hill, Ozark Highballers Perform ‘Rhythms Of The River’

Still on the Hill
 and the Ozark Highballers will celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the Buffalo National River with “Rhythms of the River” at 2 p.m. July 30 at the School House meeting rooms at 45 Church St. in Gilbert. The concert is free.

Roy and Aviva Pilgrim of the Ozark Highballers play music as it existed along the Buffalo River a hundred years ago. They will share traditional dance and give commentary on artisan guitar-making as well. Still on the Hill will perform their collection of original Buffalo River story songs titled “Still a River,” released in 2016. While the music is new, it is also well anchored in the Ozark musical traditions of old.
