South on Main, SoMa

Summer evenings come alive in SoMa.

Methodist Family Health just announced "SHINE-ola," an inaugural concert that will shine a light on Arkansas musicians while benefiting the foundation.

Set to take the South on Main stage on July 14 from 6-10 p.m., SHINE-ola (a nod to the nonprofit's SHINE campaign) will help raise money for necessities, therapeutic resources and other essentials for children and families who are in the care of MFH.

“Methodist Family Health has been helping Arkansans since 1899 when they began as the Arkansas Methodist Orphanage,” musician Jason Lee Hale says. “In the more than 120 years since they were founded, Methodist Family Health has become a complete continuum of care for children who are struggling with mental health, behavioral and emotional issues. I had no idea of all the ways Methodist Family Health helps in the community, and it’s my honor as well as the performers on this slate, to work with them any way we can.”

The lineup is packed with local talent that you won’t want to miss. Here are the special guests you can expect to see:

  • Jason Lee Hale and The Personal Space Invaders
  • The Mark Simpson Trio featuring Jure Baloh and Dave Hoffpauir
  • Cliff & Susan
  • Rikki “D”
  • The Brian Nahlen Band
  • Griffen and Friends
  • Mark Curry
  • Paul Tull
  • Cherise Martini and The Peacekeepers
  • Billy Jeter and The Shine Eye Band
  • Monsterboy Lives
