Composer/opera singer by day and country crooner by night, Bonnie Montgomery is one hell of a talented lady. And she wrote an opera about Bill Clinton, y'all!
1. Name, occupation, years in LR, neighborhood: Bonnie Montgomery, musician, 3 yrs in Little Rock (I moved to a farm outside LR last year, but I still drive in constantly!).
3. If you ate a different meal at a different local restaurant for a day, what would they be? I'd probably start with breakfast at Boulevard (breakfast sandwich and americano), lunch at either Natchez or South on Main, then have a late steak dinner at Sonny Williams. I wish I could squeeze a White Water burger or a delicious Thai soup from Saigon in there too...
4. It's a random Saturday -- what's on your agenda? I don't really have traditional weekends because I'm a musician. Saturdays are usually days to rest before either playing a show or going to see one later.
5. What do you think it's Little Rock's best kept secret? The music scene, whether it's classical, americana, metal, folk, punk, singer-songwriter, jazz, blues, bluegrass, gospel and everything in between. There is such a rich musical culture here and a very supportive community of musicians in Little Rock. I think it's overlooked in comparison to other southern cities that are known for their music.
