Julia Othmer & Patti Steel

Singer-songwriter Julia Othmer and multi-instrumentalist Patti Steel are performing together for the first time, presenting an intimate acoustic evening of song starting at 7 p.m. March 2 at Club 509 at the Shaman Kava Bar in Fayetteville.

“I’m so excited to finally be performing in this incredible community and what an honor to be sharing the night with one of the region’s brightest lights and strongest voices — Patti Steel,” says Othmer. “She’s an phenomenal powerhouse!”

This will be Othmer’s debut performance in Arkansas. She and Steel first met while performing at the Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City, Mo., and became fast friends.

“We just clicked. It took no longer than a second. We are kindred spirits,” Steel adds.
