Arkansas Weekend: DeMent-ed events

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published August 21, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.

Performing in her native state has sometimes posed peculiar challenges for Iris DeMent, Jack W. Hill writes in Thursday's Arkansas Weekend section.

She endured being strafed by a bat during a show years ago in Eureka Springs, then her bottom nearly froze to the piano bench one April at a frigid outdoor show at a lakeside retreat outside Little Rock.

But she’s returning to Arkansas for a pair of weekend shows that will at least be in civilized environs — at Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville on Friday and the new South on Main venue in Little Rock on Saturday, which will bring DeMent back to the location of her first-ever Arkansas show, when Juanita’s was housed at 13th and Main streets. The Oxford American magazine has its offices and a restaurant/club in the space.

Read Thursday's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for full details on weekend events.
