Gregg and Rita Shively of Waldron have a life’s calling, and that is to play music and preach the Word. In fact, over the last four years, the husband and wife duo have been traveling the state doing just that.

“I’ve traveled ‘round Arkansas playing original Christian and country music and preachin’ a little,” stated Gregg Shively. “There is so much talent in these Arkansas hills. Rita Sue and I wanted a place where area musicians of all levels could come together and just play.”

After much prayer and searching, a location opened up on Main Street in Waldron’s Historic District. The idea of “Pickin’ In the Round” came together, and since mid October, has been the hot spot for those who wanna come hear some good music.

“Every Thursday evening we gather in a circle makin’ music with friends, old and new, round-robin style and just have too much fun,” added Shively.

Singers, players and listeners are all welcome! They play a variety of music from Christian, country, blues, folk, old rock, bluegrass, southern front porch, and a little Cajun music!

He said “we have three rules, no fussin’, no cussin’, and no alcohol!” Waldron Mayor David Millard commented that he would love to see the music session grow.

They meet every Thursday night from 6-9 p.m. at 264 S. Main Street in Waldron. If you have questions, you can contact the Shivelys at 479-207-4501.
