Evenings in SoMa are a little greater thanks to the Oxford American's Concert Series at South on Main. The magazine has announced its 2019-2020 series, and there's no lack of talent and Southern voice. 

The season's theme is "Old Friends/New Friends," showcasing artists who have taken the stage in Little Rock before, along with musicians who have never been to the capital city. The series will be divided into three groups of four concerts each. 

Here's the full lineup:


  • Amy Helm / Aug. 22

  • Chatham County Line / Oct. 17

  • Jon Cleary / Feb. 20
  • Mary Gauthier / March 26

Archetypes & Troubadours

  • Rev. Sekou / Sept. 26

  • Catherine Russell / Dec. 5

  • John Fullbright / March 12

  • Ranky Tanky / April 16


  • Peter Martin & Romero Lubambo featuring Erin Bode / Sept. 5
