Mike Fleming grew up in St. Louis, went to college in Columbia, Mo., and has lived most of his adult life in Nashville, Tenn. But coming back to Northwest Arkansas to play at the Faulkner Performing Arts Center is still a lot like coming home. Fleming, now a standup bass player with the Grammy-winning Steeldrivers, performed at the one of the country music shows in Eureka Springs from 1981 to 1988, lived at Holiday Island, and he and his wife had their first daughter at the hospital in Springdale.
