East Nash Grass & The Cleverly's

Hempstead Hall presents EAST NASH GRASS and THE CLEVERLY'S live in Hope, Arkansas. 

Join us on November 3, 2023, at 7:00pm as we host our first ever bluegrass show here at Hempstead Hall. 

As seen on The Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Auditorium stages, The Cleverly's and East Nash Grass are an ever-growing sensation in the music scene of Nashville, Tennessee. Both bands are steadily growing in popularity across the country as they continue to book shows nation-wide. Although members of each band have worked together in the past, this will be the first co-billed show featuring East Nash Grass and The Cleverly's together, and Hempstead Hall's first co-billed show to host! After 10 years of operation, Hempstead Hall has seen the likes of Sara Evans, Trace Atkins, The Temptations, The Plain White T's, and many more, but never hosted a concert featuring a genre that Arkansas is known for - bluegrass! The haunting and soulful sounds of acoustic rhythm combined with melodic refrains and solos will lay the foundation and enhance the piercing, high-lonesome harmonies from each group. 

The Show will take place on Friday, November 3, 2023, at 7:00pm at Hempstead Hall; located on the University of Arkansas |Hope-Texarkana, Hope campus. 

Tickets are on sale now HERE!



An ensemble of standout players from a city known for the quality of its musicians, East Nash Grass came by its name and reputation honestly, honing their performance chops night after night on a tiny stage on Music City’s east side. Even now having played many of the biggest stages in bluegrass, East Nash Grass can still be found every Monday night performing in that same east side bar. They quickly became one of the top young bands in bluegrass music, whose members have been highly sought-after as side musicians for the genre’s top stars and hottest bands.

Today, whether it’s bluegrass Monday at Dee’s, or the hallowed stage of the Ryman Auditorium, East Nash Grass brings swagger, staggering abilities, and high energy to every performance. Bluegrass music tends to fall on a spectrum. On one end is the rough and tumble, high-energy style exemplified by the pioneers of the genre. On the other is a highly polished studio-ready approach, one in which each note is executed with clinical perfection. It’s not easy to balance such precision while being musically joyful and in the moment, but East Nash Grass does it, staking their position squarely in the middle of this spectrum, executing at the highest levels of proficiency with a sense of ease and humor that only comes from hundreds of hours making music together.



 The Cleverlys

The Cleverly's is a one-of-a-kind, unique comedy and music experience. From the groups' humble beginnings in the Ozark Mountains, to currently headlining festivals and PAC's all over the country, even performing regularly on the coveted Grand Ole Opry stage. One thing is for certain, there is no other show like this out there. Dr Digger is the master churner of all things buttery and smooth. "His comedy is a hybrid of Homer and Jethro and the office" said Rolling Stone Magazine. "If Dolly Parton, Earl Scruggs, and Spinal Tap spawned a litter of puppies, it would be The Cleverlys" says the New York Times. "The group has evolved over the years and the comedy and musicality is the best it's ever been. Our show is now on the top shelf." says Digger Cleverly. The group is comprised of Dr. Digger, his nephews Ricky Lloyd, DVD, Haggis, and his youngest brother, Wasper. This group is a master class of comedic timing, showmanship, and world class musicianship.
