Red River Radio Music Fest in Mall St Vincent from Th, May 31, through Sun, June 3; from the symphony to Dirtfoot

Red River Radio is presenting a brand new music fest in Mall St Vincent that is reminiscent of a downtown event like Funky Fridays or Downtown Saturday Nights. But this music fest has enormous advantages in the A/C, East Shreveport location and mall parking. Additionally, there's the inclusion of lots of classical music.

The event, with the Red River Radio crew broadcasting from the mall, is a fund-raising maneuver. You'll see that a wide range of musicians like Red River Radio enough to help them make the budget by supporting this superbly musical 4-day event.
