History Happy Hour: The Man in Black
September 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5
September’s History Happy Hour is very special! Along with celebrating our Johnny Cash exhibit, 1968: A Folsom Redemption, we’re celebrating the anniversary of the show that Johnny Cash did in Fayetteville on September 17, 1968 that included an appearance with then-Governor Winthrop Rockefeller. This day is also historic as Arkansas native Bob Wootton came to Fayetteville to see the Cash show, and he ended up on stage playing guitar for Cash. This would be the beginning of a thirty-year career in Cash’s band.
The Clinton House Museum and Fayetteville Ale Trail are hosting the fifth History Happy Hour of the year on Tuesday, September 17th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. This will be a great opportunity to see the 1968: A Folsom Redemption exhibit as well as enjoy a locally crafted beer and snacks. The featured “program” will be an outdoor showing of the Folsom Prison concert on a big screen.
Tickets are $5 each at the door (no advance ticket sales) and will get you a pint glass with the HHH logo, two pours, non-alcoholic beverages, snacks, and entertainment. Details about each event can be found on this website, the Fayetteville Ale Trail site, and on Facebook.
