The River Arkansas played in the CPR Performance Studio for the first time last week.

The folk group is a star-studded cast of Colorado musicians like Mike Clark (Mike Clark & the Sugar Sounds), Macon Terry (Clouds & Mountains), Danah Olivetree (Spirits of the Red City) and more.

Alisha Sweeney spoke with the members of The River Arkansas about the band's brief history since May 2014, their upcoming full-length "Golden Light" and Clark's frightening experiences living near the river from which the act takes its name.
