KASU to sponsor two upcoming concerts
KASU will sponsor a live blues concert featuring John Weston at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 5, in downtown Jonesboro at Sheffield's Restaurant. Weston hails from the rich Delta region of Brinkley and took up music as a hobby in 1970. He began performing publicly about 20 years ago. His musical style is influenced by his interest in jazz and country music. At the age of 49, he took up the chromatic harmonica to accompany his rich baritone voice. This Blue Monday concert featuring Weston is part of a monthly series of free blues concerts hosted by KASU, the public radio service of ASU. Additional support of Blue Monday is from Liberty Bank of Arkansas, Back Beat Music, and the Posey Peddler.
  Then, on Thursday, July 8, from 7-9 p.m., KASU will sponsor the first ever "Jazz on the Lawn." This free concert will feature the jazz group El Bu'ho and Friends at The Edge Coffee House. "El Bu'ho" is the South American nickname given to internationally known jazz trumpeter Gary Gazaway. Gazaway, who grew up in northeast Arkansas, was influenced by the region's rich musical heritage of blues, gospel, soul, jazz and rockabilly. His band tours regularly throughout the Midwest and Southwest. This performance is sponsored by The Edge and First Community Bank.
