Monthly Musical Performance

Paragould, Arkansas

Location: Collins Theatre, 120 West Emerson Street, Paragould, AR

Dates: Monday, July 22, 2019

Time: 7 pm

Description: On the fourth Monday night of each month, KASU of Arkansas State University presents its "Bluegrass Monday" concert series at the Collins Theatre. The concerts feature acclaimed bluegrass musicians from across the country. KASU will "pass the hat," collecting money to pay the musicians. The suggested donation is $5 per person. The concert is held on the third Monday in May so it doesn't conflict with Memorial Day.

The Bluegrass Monday concerts began in 2002 as an outreach into the community by KASU-FM to promote live bluegrass music and to promote KASU’s broadcasts of bluegrass radio programs. The concert series is totally non-profit. KASU generates no net revenue from the shows. Local businesses serve as sponsors with their contributions covering overhead costs. 100% of the money collected from the audience at each show is given to the performers. When the concerts began, groups from our immediate region primarily performed, but later as the audience size grew, KASU began to book nationally-known, professional bands. The home of Bluegrass Monday, the Collins Theatre in downtown Paragould, Arkansas, was built in 1925, and it was restored to its original grandeur by community members in Paragould. The theatre seats 541 patrons and it has state-of-the-art lighting and video systems.

  KASU is in partnership with Terry’s Café, located one block to the east of the Collins Theatre, at the corner of Emerson and Pruitt Streets in downtown Paragould. Terry’s opens at 4:30 pm on Bluegrass Monday evenings, serving a country-style catfish buffet and providing bluegrass music fans a place to visit before the concert begins.

Free, a donation of $5 is suggested.
