Bluegrass Monday presents the Harman Family
The Harman Family will perform a concert of bluegrass music tonight at 7 p.m. at Atkins Celebration Hall, 101 South Pruett Street, in downtown Paragould, Arkansas.  The concert is part of the Bluegrass Monday concert series presented by KASU 91.9 FM, the public broadcasting service of ASU. Admission is free, but KASU will literally pass the hat to collect money to pay the group. Mike Harman played banjo for Alison Krauss in her band Union Station from 1986 to 1990, being featured on her platinum selling "Now That Iíve Found You" CD and on her Grammy-nominated CD "Two Highways." The Harman Family performs a mixture of traditional and contemporary bluegrass and gospel. Bluegrass Monday concerts are held on the fourth Monday night of each month. For more information, contact Marty Scarbrough, program director, at ext. 2367.
