Levon Walkin has been a fixture on the Hot Springs, Arkansas, music
scene for more years than he cares to count, admits his press kit. His front porch pickin' style and unique vocals make the cover tunes sound like his own, but he's got original songs, too.

Walkin has five CD's to his credit, Trails Left, Walkin the Ball w/ Kathy Ball, Sweet 'n' Low Down w/ Jerry Jines, Back To Tulsa w/ Uncle Ricky Dicus and most recently a live recording from the historical Capone's Ohio Club.

Blue Martin says to expect a few local performers to join Walkin onstage at the Noble Savage Fri night, 9 to 11 pm.

Blue also says to check the Savage jazz jam led by Dirty Red Crenshaw on Thursday evenings.

Levon Walkin will testify we birth 'em upright and raise 'em to walk tall in Hot Springs, Ark.

Folks like us got hooked on the place the first time we visited here, and that was five years ago.

Word's gotten around geographer Warren Bland recently named Hot Springs, Ark. the No. 1 place in America to retire.

I gotta admit, Hot Springs is a pretty cool place to live, even for those of us who aren't yet retired and for front-porch pickers like Levon.
