The Siloam Springs-based duo performs another original titled,"Graduation Day."

The duo The Purple Kite has released a new 5-song CD that explores real-life experiences.

On this edition of the KUAF Music Mixdown, we hear from local singer-songwriter Ryan Pickop, Arkansauce and a few alumni of past live Roots Festival editions of Ozarks at Large.

The old-time folk duo recently stopped by the Firmin-Garner Performance Studio and performed this song, "Gone to the West."

Unless you regularly attend square dances or mountain-style jam sessions, you probably don't regularly hear much old-time folk music. While much music was recorded in the early 20th Century by archivists such as Alan Lomax, old-time folk music might be difficult to find at most record stores. But that doesn't mean the music hasn't survived through the oral tradition. Allison Williams and Will Goehring make up the local duo Old Ties, and in their live sets, they perform old-time music almost exclusively.
