The W. S. Holland band.

On Friday night, the W. S. Holland Band will be playing at the Ron Robinson Theatre in the River Market district of downtown Little Rock.  The show is sponsored by the Artspree concert series and the UALR Department of Music.

W. S. “Fluke” Holland performed with Johnny Cash for decades before Cash’s retirement from touring in 1997. Holland was a fixture at Sun Records in the early days of rock and roll. Holland’s band will play classic Johnny Cash songs as well as other tunes from the Sun period.

The warm-up act on Friday night will be the Little Rock band Jeff Coleman and the Feeders, which will also perform songs by Johnny Cash.

The event is free and open to the public. The music is scheduled to start at 6:45. Those interested are encouraged to arrive early, as seating is limited.

The music on Friday night serves as an opening to the UALR exhibit, Johnny Cash: Arkansas Icon, which includes rare photographs and memorabilia concerning Johnny Cash’s days in his home state.
