Little Rock's folky Midwest Caravan and Sean Michel sing at Shreveport's Java Junction Th, July 6, 8 pm

Midwest Caravan with Sean Michel is an ALL AGES! show, according to Cristal Wilcox at Java Junction. She writes, "Little Rock, AR acoustic act: folky & a tad country. Immortalizing cheating wives, big bad wolves & small town USA. Come bask in the vibes of these Arkansas gypsies! $3." and

JJ also has bluesy Brian Martin on Sat: "Another neighbor from the north, Arkansan Brian Martin is adored by Shrevport show-goers. He's reminiscent of fried green tomoatos and the fact that you can catch catfish on ivory soap. $5."

Says Mr. Martin of his music: "Although I draw on an eclectic array of musical genres during a typical performance, including soul, gospel, and funk; I never stray far from the influences of southern roots music. I can't help but gravitate to the styles of old-time fingerstyle country blues, ragtime jazz, and intimate, bare boned folk ballads."
