Rachel "Brick" Fields and Fonky Donkey perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at White Water Tavern in Little Rock. Fields, a singer-songwriter-guitarist-flutist, and her husband, guitarist and backing vocalist Larry Brick, will be accompanied by Little Rock band Fonky Donkey.
Fields was born in Pine Bluff and raised in Batesville, where she played flute in the high school band. She grew up in a musical family, the niece of noted singer-songwriter Mike "Burger" Scoggins, who led the Arkansas band Sweet Magnolia in the late '70s and early '80s. Fields, along with her West Memphis-raised husband, who met, married and started their band, Brick Fields, in 2007, live in Prairie Grove and primarily perform in Northwest Arkansas.
The band recently released a pair of albums, "Live at George's" and "Into the Garden," which they dedicated to their late bassist, Hoobie Daniels. Their song, "Soul of a Woman," won an Independent Music Award for Blues Song in 2021. Fields is also a member of Northwest Arkansas "supergroup," Divas on Fire. Admission is $5.
