Check out the full summer lineup.

As a safety precaution and to comply with CDC guidelines, Crystal Bridges and the Momentary require that face coverings are worn by guests of age 10 and older at outdoor programs and events, as well as at food and drink venues, except when eating and drinking. Masks recommended for ages 2 to 9. In order to maintain physical distancing at the concert, circles will be drawn in the seating area for each household group. Guests may remove their face covering to eat or drink only while inside their circle.
About the Bands:
Returning to the Forest Concert Series is indie-folk band Dawson Hollow. With their sophomore album dropping this summer, Dawson Hollow’s music encompasses the nostalgia of folk while channeling the urgent and intoxicating energy of indie rock. Hailing from the Missouri Ozark Mountains, their unique and invigorating music brings alive a contagious passion and leaves listeners energized and refreshed.
Opener: Jamie Lou & The Hullabaloo
Founded by Florida native Jamie Lou Connolly, Arkansas’s Jamie Lou and The Hullabaloo have been called a modern Fleetwood Mac and equated to a female-fronted Wilco. Driven by the “dreamy voice” (Arkansas Times) and seasoned poetry of Connolly, and bolstered by the impressive collective talent that is The Hullabaloo, the Femi-Socialite EP marks Jamie Lou’s most beautiful, gritty, diverse, and self-assured collection of songs to date.
