John Tolleson
Many folks know John and wife Gail as engaged OLLI members, UA supporters and great friends. Did you know John is a regional icon in the entertainment industry? He is arguably the most distinguished of the rock pioneers of Northwest Arkansas. The John Tolleson group was a fixture at college and high school events and at local nightclubs in the late 1950′s. John will delight us with several selections from his celebrated piano repertoire.  This is an OLLI event you will want to come early and stay late!
