  • Performing a vigorous style of music that blends elements from America's musical past, the Skirtlifters are coming to town! The spring musical entertainment of the Warfield Music Festival in Helena-West Helena will continue Friday, May 3, with outdoor dinner and dancing to the Skirtlifters at Fort Curtis on Columbia Street in downtown Helena. Norac Additives, United Initiators SPI, Inc., and the Arkansas Arts Council are sponsoring the performance, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. Known for their foot-stomping, old-time string band music, the Skirtlifters offer an eclectic blend of the fiddle, banjo, guitar and upright bass. From their vintage clothing to their festive style of traditional American music, the band members believe in the historical importance of their music, but their ultimate goal is to lift your spirits. The venue for this Warfield Concert has changed, due to inclement weather. The show will take place at the same time in the Fine Arts Center Community Room at Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas (address: 1000 Campus Drive, Helena, AR). The catfish dinner has been cancelled. Free tickets to this concert may be downloaded at www.warfieldconcerts.com. They are also available at the Phillips County Chamber of Commerce, and the Tourist Welcome Center - or by sending a SASE to P.O. Box 81, Helena, AR 72342 (four tickets honored per request). The same ticket may be used for every regular season concert. No children under the age of six will be admitted.
