— The musical duo Jeni and Billy - Jennifer Hankins and Billy Kemp - will return to the Faulkner County Library for a performance at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Hankins, born and raised in Virginia coal country brings a writer and singer’s ear to the cadences and imagery of her native Appalachia.

Kemp, a multi-instrumentalist, also does some of the writing, but his major contribution is framing the songs with acoustic arrangements built on various combinations of guitar, banjo, bass, mandolin, harmonica and occasional fiddle from Shad Cobb.

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call the library at (501) 327-7482 or email, Facebook or Twitter.
