The six members of Blackberry Winter Band paid a social call on the staff of Harrison, Ark.’s Hometown TV station and its program 726 This Week on Wednesday. They visited with staff members and played a few tunes from their touring repertoire, according to band leader Marideth Sisco.
Harrison’s Digital Channel 26.2, which also broadcasts on Cox Cable channel 843 and Ritter Cable channel 22, hosts a morning show where visitors are welcome to talk about events of interest to the community. The band dropped by to offer a musical plug for their appearance August 20 at the Eureka Springs, AR Bluegrass Festival. Blackberry Winter Band is the headliner for the three day free outdoor festival at Basin Spring Park.
The program runs at 7 p.m. Friday in Harrison, and at 7 a.m. Friday in the Mountain Home TV market. Or watch the interview and performance at http://www.youtube.com/user/hometowntelevision.
