On the fourth Monday night of each month, KASU presents the "Bluegrass Monday" concert series at the Collins Theatre, 120 West Emerson Street, in downtown Paragould. Shows begin at 7:00 p.m.
The concerts feature acclaimed bluegrass musicians from across the country. Past performers include Larry Stephenson, Valerie Smith, Nothin' Fancy, Eddie & Martha Adcock, the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, David Parmley & Continental Divide, Special Consensus, Monroe Crossing, and many more.
KASU will "pass the hat," collecting money to pay the musicians. The suggested donation is $5 per person. The Bluegrass Monday concert series is made possible thanks to support from Bibb Chiropractic, the Posey Peddler, Holiday Inn Express and Suites of Paragould, and the Northeast Arkansas Bluegrass Association.
