Nice! The Oxford American announced this evening that critically adored folk singer Iris DeMent will perform at its South on Main venue at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24. Tickets are $45 and go on sale this Saturday at noon. Get them here.
DeMent — who was born in Paragould — will also perform at the Fayetteville Roots Festival (Aug. 22-25), which has a hell of a lineup this year, including Del McCoury, dobro guru Jerry Douglas, the great Mary Gauthier and many more.
