The hottest thing in Eureka Springs, AR in January 2014 was OzMoMu, the Ozark Mountain Music Festival. Hundreds came and enjoyed the eclectic mountain music sounds of 10 bands. This year, partnering with the ESDN – The Eureka Springs Main Street Program, OzMoMu2 returns to the 1905 Basin Park Hotel, January 22-25, 2015.
“Last year we touted OzMoMu as Eureka Springs’ next great festival,” said Mary Howze, festival coordinator, “and we did not disappoint. Even before the last note of OzMoMu1 music stopped echoing through the Barefoot Ballroom, the crowd wanted to know the dates of OzMoMu2, the sequel. And just like last year’s musical extravaganza, OzMoMu2 will focus around Indie Folk with a festival lineup that includes multiple stages and lively music for four exciting days.”
The 2015 Ozark Mountain Music Festival will begin Thursday, January 22 at 6:00 p.m. and will continue with 10 acts until Sunday’s “Bloody Mary Morning Show” with passes once again being kept affordable. OzMoMu2 will feature the following: Mountain Sprout, Hooten Hallers, Shawn James & The Shapeshifters, Dimetrip, Chucky Waggs,Foley’s Van, Brody Buster, Spring Street Band, Dusty Pearls, and Hosty Duo.
“A key to establishing this event,” noted Jack Moyer, general manager of the hotel, “will be in both providing great Indie/Folk music performed by regional talent on multiple stages, and inventing a path where the festival-style atmosphere makes the Basin Park Hotel abuzz with activity like attendees enjoying all-access passes, overnighting at the hotel, and being immersed in an atmosphere that encourages eating, drinking and dancing in one central location that has an indoor ‘festival grounds’ feel, per se.”
