Billy Arnold and Kari Nelson at Fitzy's

This past Saturday night,  a few of us headed to Fitzy’s Sports Bar in Edgewood, to listen to Nashville recording artists, Billy Arnold and Kari Nelson.  One word, ADORABLE!!! They are a great and exceedingly talented duo.  If you love acoustic guitar and fiddle music, you have to take in their show at Fitzy’s this Saturday, November 26th from 5-9.  They play much of their of original recordings but also plenty of contemporary Country hits.  The crowd of dancer’s were lovin them.  Of course, I love Kari’s soulful and sultry version of, ” Joleen! ”

Fitzy’s is a real fun place, we enjoyed a tasty platter of battered pickle chips and quesadillas and had super bar service by Fitzy’s owner, Morgan Kendrick.
