[Update as of 11:41 a.m. Thursday: The Ronnie Milsap concert has been cancelled.

Refunds or exchanges will be given by the WAC box office.]

If you wanted to see Ronnie Milsap, now is your chance. And we might even have warmer-than-average temperatures for it.

The vocalist, responsible for dozens of No. 1 country hits, will perform in Fayetteville this weekend in an event rescheduled from early December. Ronnie Milsap is voice behind songs such as “Lost in the Fifties Tonight” and “Smokey Mountain Rain,” among other hits. Icy road conditions moved the concert from Dec. 8 to 4 p.m. Sunday (Jan. 12) at the Walton Arts Center. Remaining tickets range from $25-$55 and are available at the Walton Arts Center box office or via

Also this weekend, blues band Blew Reed and the Flatheads have a two-night run at Tony C’s in Prairie Creek. They’ll be performing around 9 p.m. both today (Jan. 10) and Saturday (Jan. 11).

Bombay Harambee returns to Fayetteville for a show Saturday at The Lightbulb Club. They have a new album out, and Shea Stewart from our sister publication Sync in Little Rock has the details about the recording. The show here includes support from May the Peace of the Sea Be With You.

Other gigs taking place this weekend are listed on the blog’s homepage.
