KASU launched a free live local concert series in 1999, a time when the downtown of Jonesboro, Arkansas was dying. Teaming with local restaurants, featuring great bands who played for donations, these monthly concerts made a major contribution to the emerging downtown revitalization. The concert series expanded to rural Paragould, featuring bluegrass music – a celebration of the nearby Ozarks. And now to another town: Newport.
