Check out the link below. It’s a great article about the Old Quarter and me.
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. 20th, SHAKE RUSSELL, MIKE HEARNE AND
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
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. OCT. 10, 2014 BRANDON MCDERMOTT
Sat. Oct. 11th. Robert Kuhn Our home town favorite. More details coming.!!
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
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/
SAT. DEC. 13, 2014 AL AND JOHN STAEHELY PLUS EVELYN RUBIO
FRI. DEC. 19, 2014 THE ANNUAL CHRISTMAS GATHERING.

SAT. DEC. 20, 2014 ZAK PERRY
SAT. JAN. 10, 2014 Ruthie Foster “Everybody ought to have a stone love” So says
Ruthie Foster on the opening cut of The Truth According to Ruthie Foster.
And when Ruthie lays it down, you’d be well advised to listen. This extraordinary
songwriter/performer tackles life’s big issues throughout her sizzling new album.
On it, Ruthie repeatedly testifies to her core message – that through all of the
ups and downs of living, you must stay true to yourself. The pain as well as
the joy of love, the strength it takes to weather life’s challenges, the hope
that grows from seeds of faith and wisdom: All of this breathes
inspiration and celebration into The Truth According to Ruthie Foster.
This will be an awesome show! We are so excited to have Ruthie back on our stage!!!!
SAT. JAN. 31, 2015 Marina Rocks
