TISH HINOJOSA

SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELED 

PURCHASED TICKETS WILL BE REFUNDED

 

Tish Hinojosa is a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas. Hinojosa’s blend of folk, country, Latino, and pop has an undeniable far reaching appeal, garnering her accolades such as a White House concert at the invitation of President and Mrs. Clinton and teaming up with artists such as Joan Baez, Booker T. Jones, Flaco Jimenez, Pete Seeger, and Dwight Yoakam.

She has recorded as an independent artist as well as for A&M, Warner Bros, and Rounder Records and has been a featured artist on Austin City Limits, A Prairie Home Companion and other NPR programs.

With sixteen CDs to her name, Tish’s distinct sound has gained her much critical acclaim. Her latest CD After The Fair, released in 2013, was recorded in Germany and is reflective of her 9 years spent in the Beatles old stomping grounds in Hamburg. Tish has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe and continues to draw a loyal and growing audience.

 

 

TOMMY LEWIS

 

Tommy was raised in Alvin, Tx, learning jazz trumpet from Dick Ferking, piano from his mom, Barbara, and taste from his dad, Bill. He taught himself to play guitar (mostly to impress a cute John Denver fan) after moving to Iowa, became involved in the local scene, and eventually joined Rick Burke’s Traveling Music Show and Review in 2012. He and Kevin Lindgren met while both were part of Rick’s convoy, and broke out to start Lindgren and Lewis. LnL was named “one of the best new bands on 2013” by music review “The Insider Sessions” and performed in Nashville, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Des Moines, Houston, Dallas, and Oklahoma City.

Learning songwriting and performing from craftsmen like cowboy-turned-professor F. Charles Persall, award winning songwriter Chad Elliott, and local legend and performing artist Rick Burke, Tommy quit his job as a professor at Graceland University and struck out as a traveling folk singer, playing over 200 shows a year, sometimes over 250. In 2015 he was hired as lead guitarist for Chad Elliott, playing in every state from California to Maine. He joined Radney Foster and an opening act for a brief southwest tour in 2016.

His first solo EP, “Winding” was produced by Chad Elliott (chadelliott.net) and was released by Tommy’s own Fish Foster Records in August 2015 to awesome reviews. His first book of haiku poetry, Heart, Far From My Feet, was released in spring of 2016. His first full-length album, “Silver and Stone” was released October 2016. In 2017, he joined Trio Live alongside songwriters Radney Foster, Travis Meadows, Eddie Heinzelman, Eric Erdman, Chad Elliott and many others with authors like Wiley Cash, Shari Smith (the brainmother of Trio) and Rick Bragg to help produce works of music and art around books born of southern culture.
