Knife in the Water is a band that formed 20 years ago in Austin, Texas. In their early days, they released three records and one EP and even toured with Calexico. The band slowly ran out of steam, until a new record began to take shape in 2015. That record, titled “Reproductions” was released earlier this year. Most of the band’s members have changed, but guitarist and vocalist Aaron Blount and pedal steel player Bill McCullough are still fixtures of the five-piece band. While the band was touring the region in support of the album, they made their way to Fayetteville.

No Amps, Just Voices

The Dazzling Diamonds Chorus sings all kinds of music. The only instrument: their voices.


It’s not often on Ozarks at Large that we get the chance to hear from a local band in its infancy. The duo Ladies Night may have only performed a handful of shows together, but both of the band’s members are far from new to the area music scene. Dana Idlet is the namesake of Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds, and Meredith Kimbrough has performed throughout the area as part of Lost John, Nature and Madness, and other bands.

Fayetteville native Caleb Ryan Martin is only 19 years old, but he averages upwards of 150 shows each year at venues across the country. Last night he performed with Mary-Heather and the Sinners as the opening act for a Kellie Pickler concert in Northwest Arkansas. In between shows, Martin has found time to sign with a Kansas City label and work on his second album.

In the world of classical music, there aren’t many compositions written for flute and violin duets, as both instruments live in the higher tonal range, but this weekend, a recital in Eureka springs will feature that exact combination of voices. Flutist Indigo Fischer and violinist Rebecca Patek will perform Sunday evening at Eureka Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Eureka Springs
