At last. Bonnie Montgomery’s self-titled debut album is the album fans of the White County-raised singer-songwriter have been waiting on. Not that her EPs, 2012’s Cruel and last summer’s Joy, are inconsequential releases. And her 2011 album, Live At the Cake Shop, is also not a negligible work. Same with Billy Blythe, a modern folk opera about the childhood of Bill Clinton, with Montgomery supplying the music and Britt Barber the words.
The Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center presents its final It’s Summer Friday with two free programs at the River Market center. The programs include Friday Nature Fun Day from 11 a.m. to noon for ages 9-13, where kids learn about science and nature through fun activities, technology and time spent outdoors, and #FieldNotesFriday from 1-2 p.m. for ages 9 and up, with a specific animal or plant being spotlighted. This Friday’s fun is titled Go Fish! Registration is not required.
