KASU Live Events

KASU produces numerous live events to benefit and to entertain the community it serves. 

Bluegrass Monday

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, 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 Backbeat Music, the Posey Peddler, Main Street Paragould, and the Northeast Arkansas Bluegrass Association.

Coffee House Concerts at TheArtsAT311

KASU-FM, the Arkansas State University public radio service announces the launch of a new concert series, in downtown Jonesboro, in conjunction with The ArtsAT311 and three other community minded sponsors.

Between June and December, KASU will present five exclusive concerts at 311 S. Church Street featuring some of the most talented musicians in Arkansas and the region.  Tickets will be sold to 50 audience members who will enjoy an unforgettable experience in downtown Jonesboro’s most intimate musical setting, the ArtsAT311. The coffeehouse atmosphere of these performances will add to the vibrant mix of live music in downtown Jonesboro in the following ways:

1.       “Something for everybody”  -- musical genres ranging from blues, jazz, and soul  to folk and Americana alt-country -- performed by singer-songwriters and small combos with wide-ranging musical tastes and regional connections.

2.       “Something different”  -- these performers will come from the Ozarks, the Delta, Little Rock, Memphis and neighboring states.

3.       “Something special”  -- other downtown music venues are busy and noisy. Listeners at KASU Coffee House Concerts will hear   talented  musicians performing great original material in the Arts AT311’s wonderful ambience.

4.     “Something unique”  --  TheArtsAT311 is “all about the music.”  These Coffee House Concerts will be available to 50 to 60  seat-holders who will have a truly special experience.
