Now, we will be able to revitalize this scholarship and offer it annually to promising artists/students in the area, to further their musical education. We are very proud to offer this in conjunction with our existing Art Scholarships and in keeping with our mission statement to further education in the Arts. So toss your hats in the air and pat yourselves on the back!! That is one milestone to be proud of!
Susanna's Kitchen Presents Sam Baker
SINGER-SONGWRITER SAM BAKER at
SUSANNA'S KITCHEN COFFEEHOUSE!
Sam Baker is a man of few words, always beautifully chosen, and fully wrought. His original works have been described as “some of the most vivid, compelling, truly original songs of any artist working today,” and Baker has been compared with Leonard Cohen, “if Cohen had been a Baptist raised in West Texas.”
Sam was born and raised in Itaska, Texas. While traveling in Peru in 1986, Sam narrowly survived a train bombing that left him with injuries requiring years of reconstructive surgeries. Reflection on events and healing that mark his life now provide the lens through which Sam presents his art, poetry, and music.
Album trilogy mercy, pretty world, and cotton are marked with sparse instrumentation and poetic delivery. Baker's more recent album, Say Grace, was listed by Rolling Stone as one of the top 10 country music albums of 2013.
Doors open by 7:00 pm, concert begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets at the door: $20 for adults, $5 kids under 18. Pizza, nachos,
tamales, fabulous desserts, coffee and sodas available for purchase. Proceeds benefit The Barnabas Connection, Operation Good Shepherd, and Mother's Day Out scholarships for low income working mothers.
In addition to these events, there are more things to do in Wimberley and the surrounding area. Some of these are seasonal. recurring or activities. Cooking classes, wine tours, horseback riding, bingo, water related and more... CLICK
