         all the while. In 2010, he moved North to Houston and on to Galveston,

         where the music took over. http://www.reverbnation.com/robertkuhn

       BONNIE BISHOP “Her music washed over me with a purity and soulfulness

       that is rarely found in this world of noise. Afterwards when I was walking home,

       I could hear Bonnie’s songs in my head… and for the first time in a long time,

       I felt like I was in tune” Robert Earl Keen http://bonniebishop.com/about/

      roots in rock, pop, folk, blues, and singer/songwriter traditions

       SUSAN HERNDON OPENING! (www.susanherndon.com)

 

      

Fri. Sept. 5th Larry Joe Taylor“The music of Larry Joe Taylor

       is flavored with an engaging coastal blending of

       Texas country music and salty melodies reminiscent

       of the slow-paced, relaxed experience of

       island-hopping through a long carefree tropical

       vacation. The lyrics fall like summer-morning dew

       drops from the palms of Port Bolivar while Captain

       LJT sets a course that will take you far away from

       the hustle and bustle of the modern world and into

       the realm of a nonchalant and unrestrained existence

       when you make landfall on his ‘Third Coast.’

SAT. SEPT. 6 KINKEY FRIEDMAN Richard Samet "Kinky" Friedman is an

       American Texas Country singer, songwriter, novelist, humorist, politician

       and former columnist for Texas Monthly who styles himself in the mold

       of popular American satirists Will Rogers and Mark Twain. He was one

       of two independent candidates in the 2006 election for the office

       of Governor of Texas. Receiving 12.6% of the vote, Friedman

       placed fourth in the six-person race. We are glad to have him back!

       He always delivers a remarkable show!

FRI. SEPT. 12TH SHELLEY KING  The music of Shelley King draws

       from and blends a spectrum of roots music styles, but one word succinctly

       describes it: soulful. Be it R&B, folk, blues, country, bluegrass or rock

       or combinations of and variations on those themes she delivers the goods

       straight from the heart with a voice that’s splendidly rich and warm

       and as big as all outdoors. Writing a proverbial trunk full of instant

       hits and yet-unheard classics, as the Austin Chronicle describes

       her songs, King has risen from the vibrant music scene in the

       Texas capital city to charm fans across North America, Europe

       and Japan, win two Austin Music Awards, and be named the

       Texas State Musician for 2008. http://www.shelleyking.com/home.html

       This will be her CD release of “Building A Fire”.

 

Sat. Sept. 13th—SAT. SEPT. 20thSHAKE RUSSELL, MIKE HEARNE AND

       MIKE ROBERTS

       Shake Russell. To fully appreciate and comprehend the magnitude of

       Shake’s contributions to music, one need only listen to his

       life’s work. From his 1976 album, “Songs on the Radio,” to

       the 2006 CD, “Love is Why,” Shake’s music is a testament

       to the reasons why he is so widely celebrated as a

       Texas music legend. http://shakerussell.com

 

Fri. Sept. 19th Max Stalling Band!!!! Texas based

       songwriter, Max Stalling, had no expectation

       of ever being in the music business. “I didn’t

       even pick up a guitar until graduate school,”

       notes Stalling. Stalling’s style is modern with

       a vintage feel. With Jeff Howe on drums and

       percussion, Clay Willis on guitar, and Jason Steinsultz

       swapping between upright and electric bass, Stalling

       creates a dynamic live show that’s smart, charming

       and as listenable as it is danceable. Stalling and

       troupe are equally at home on a huge concert stage

       in front of thousands or playing an acoustic set

       for a hundred. http://www.maxstalling.com/…

 

 

SAT. SEPT. 20th  -   Brad Boyer with Wrecks and Janet opening.“2010 GRASSY HILL KERRVILLE NEW FOLK FINALIST!! Congratulations to the

       New Folk Finalists for 2010. These songwriters were chosen from 800 outstanding
submissions we received from around the world. This is the 39th year for New
Folk and is always one of the highlights of the Kerrville Folk Festival. ”

       Kerrville Folk Festival Brads recent release of the CD titled Montagu Hotel is an excellent exhibition of his wonderful talent.

Fri. Sept. 26TH  -  Robert Kuhn and his band of misfits, renegades. & Beach Bums

 

Sept. 27th  -  James Sturrock and one of his many different bands.  The Great thing

       About that is, when James fronts any band, they are GREAT!!!!!!!!

       James Sturrock, For those that require labels, you could call

       it World fusion. It’s what Willie Nelson might have sounded like had he grown

       up after Bob Marley, Reaganomics, and The Clash. Anyone

       who appreciates a good singer-songwriter that plays heartfelt and

       emotional music will no doubt be moved. Although FIEL’s

       World Fusion sound leans heavily on Reggae for inspiration,

       their music is decorated with waves of Latin American,

       Caribbean and Afro-Cuban polyrhythm, not to mention the occasional

       Rock burner, acoustic jam, or Americana tear-dropper. .. .. .. .. .. ..

Fri. Oct. 3rd  -  Robert Kuhn and one of his great bands.

 

Sat. Oct. 4th—Matt Mejia from Come See My Dead Person.  Any musical endeavor

that Matt is involved with is great.  Matt has a golden voice, interesting music and

simply different than anyone else.

FRI. NOV. 21 RICHARD DOBSON “Dobson writes in the pithy, down-to-earth

       style that is at the heart of country music. He traffics in down-and-outism

       and that spirit-whatever it may be – that gets people through hard times

       and toughens them without numbing their sensitivity.” Dale Adamson

       http://www.richard-j-dobson.ch/

       Inspired by the example of Kris Kristofferson and the records Bob Dylan

       had made there, I moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1971, beginning

       a series of peregrinations back and forth to Texas that continued for

       almost three decades. In the late seventies I began a series of newsletters

       published in an English fanzine called Omaha Rainbow. I recorded my first LP,

       In Texas Last December, an album of original songs released on Buttermilk

       Records, a small Houston based label in 1977. I began selling records

       overseas by mail order. I began touring Europe in the eighties, which

       led to a recording deal with Brambus Records in Switzerland, an affiliation that

       has lasted to this day.

       Occasionally people ask me if I’ve been able to make a living at this

       business, and I’ve always answered that while you couldn’t call it a

       living, I wouldn’t trade the life. Music has enriched my existence

       immeasurably and brought so much joy, I would be a fool to

       complain about the hard times.

SAT. NOV. 22, 2014 Seth Walker Yes, he is coming! The driving delivery

       and infectious down-home style of Seth Walker’s voice and songs resonate

       with Blues and Roots music. Although he is heavily influenced

       by guitar players--B.B. King, T-Bone Walker and Snooks Eaglin

       to name just a few, Seth also has a great gift for songwriting in

       the blues idiom. “These songs sound like classics-- matter of fact,

       they are!” says Chris Tomlin, Gold Record recording artist.

FRI. DECEMBER 5, 2014 Dana Cooper…. With his newest release,

       The Conjurer Cooper strikes a powerful balance between a lived-in,

       natural artistry and a passionate desire to speak one’s truth. Finding

       that balance between craft and art takes experience, and this is where

       Cooper’s lifelong commitment to his work shows: Having started

       performing more than 40 years ago at age 16, he owns an expert

       craftsman’s skilled hand and a dedicated artist’s constant desire to

       tap deeper into his own experience. http://www.danacoopermusic.com/

 

SAT. DEC. 6, 2014 GEORGE ENSLE George is a songpainter. His word images

       and melodies detail landscapes. He paints a “…smooth  

       Texas breeze that moves through ancient  trees, filling the sky with

       God’s own poetry.”  And paints a sunset where he has

       “…seen time stand still, out on the edge of day’s fading light

       from a sun slipping over a hill.” He paints a housewife in her

       kitchen where “…she waltzes across Texas, as young as she

       used to be, dancing where nobody sees.” http://www.georgeensle.com/
