LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Arkansas Sounds Music Festival kicked off Friday with such acts as The Smittle Band and Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks.

But it's not too late to get in on the fun as the free festival continues all day today, September 28 at the First Security Amphitheatre in Little Rock.

"It's a wonderful way for people to experience music," explains Susan Hill Gele, director of the Central Arkansas Library System. "The library's mission is to provide for the entertainment and education of our patrons and one of the ways we're doing this is to provide the free festival."

Bands with Arkansas connections will be playing different styles of music, from bluegrass to hip hop, all to highlight the Natural State's diverse love of music.

Country performer Collin Raye is the headliner for tonight, and there will also be a tribute to Glen Campbell.

Activities for children at the Main Library include a concert by the Kinders and hip hop songwriting and production workshops.

a department of the Central Arkansas Library System.
