Nace Brothers Acoustic Kick Off Walton Arts Center’s West Street Live Series

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, September 26, 2019 – Led by brothers David and Jimmy, the Nace Brothers are a model of artistic integrity, stability and professionalism, and they are set to take the West Street Live stage at Walton Arts Center on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 7:30 pm.

A limited number of tiered seating tickets remain for this show. They are $32 plus applicable fees and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center and Walmart AMP box offices, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.

As fourth generation performers, their musical heritage began with their great-great grandfather, the classically trained violinist Valandingham Nace. The legacy continued in the 1920s and ‘30s with their grandfather Percy, a multi-instrumentalist and square dance caller. By the late ‘40s their father Johnny was playing box suppers and square dances.  

Johnny Nace progressed from playing rural dances to leading the house bands on the regional radio and television programs “Hillbilly Jamboree” and “Circle Six Ranch.” He recorded rockabilly in the late ‘50s before finding his musical home during the golden age of honky-tonk. An astute songwriter he led a top-notch band to regional success with songs like “Sing me the Blues” and “Blue Notes.” The Nace Brothers 1997 release “Roots of Steel” is a tribute to their father, and the lessons he taught them.  

In their 37th year as a touring group, the Nace Brothers are poised for a larger audience. Brilliant songwriting, expressive vocals, soaring guitar and a rock solid rhythm section combine for entertainment at its best.
