Event Details

Get ready to get into Arkansas roots all season long with Mount Sequoyah’s spring Music on the Mountain Series! This longtime vibrant collection of concerts is FREE in 2024 thanks to the support of an Arkansas Heritage Grant. Any donations will go to support Mount Sequoyah’s continued community programing. This season features a stellar lineup of talented Arkansas musicians! Mark your calendars and grab your blankets because the music starts flowing on March 9th and lasts until the sun sets on May 18th! Experience a diverse musical tapestry exploring Ozark and Americana roots. This year’s Music on the Mountain concerts will open with local emerging artists as a part of an ongoing effort to connect young performers to professional musicians for hands-on guidance.

These concerts will be outdoors at our scenic Vesper Point. Seating will be provided but feel free to bring blankets and or chairs of your own. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will move across campus, into Clapp Auditorium. This will be communicated to ticket holders via email as well as on our social pages.
Please, no outside food or drink. We will have drinks available and this year, you can add a large pizza to your ticket!
Music begins 6:00PM

Shannon Wurst has been sharing the rustic charm of her beloved Ozark Mountain region through her 14-year recording career which spans 6 albums and one EP. With each album there’s been an evolution in her vision. These days she’s releasing a series of singles that showcase more of a country spirit. Through it all, her words and songs may be from the Ozarks, but she’s singing for everyone, bringing them a slice of sweet southern living through her open-hearted and broadly resonant storyteller songs. She has been compared to Dolly Parton, Norah Jones, and Stevie Nicks.

Shannon has garnered much critical praise, career accolades, and awards. She’s earned standout reviews from Blueground Undergrass and Sing Out Folk Magazine whose John Lupton has gushed: “Shannon Wurst is among the rare breed who can make you sit upright and wonder aloud, ‘who is that?’ She is unquestionably arresting.” She has been commissioned to write music for the end–of–day parade for Bentonville, Arkansas’s non-profit, interactive children’s Amazeum museum, and to write music for the Arkansas Arts Council’s 2019 play, Bear State of Mind. Shannon has been a finalist at the Merlefest Christ Austin Contest and the Telluride Troubadour Contest, and she was a winner at the Walnut Valley New Song Showcase. Shannon performs actively in the Ozark region, and beyond, and has opened for Robert Earl Keen, Railroad Earth and Carlene Carter, and she has performed alongside artists such as Sam Bush, Margo Price and John Prine.
