Shake Russell performs at Susanna's Kitchen - August 16th
A Texas troubadourand a favorite of Susanna's Kitchen audiences Shake Russell has entertained listeners throughout the region with his unique style of folk-rock for more than four decades. A prolific songwriter, Shake has written or co-written hundreds of tunes. Songs written by Shake have been recorded by Ricky Scaggs, Waylon Jennings, Clint Black, Jessi Colter, and Carolyn Dawn Johnson.
Shake's songs draw from various genres and his unique style of folk-rock weaves sophisticated harmonies together with lyrics that are imbued with vividly beautiful imagery and a clever use of language. An evening with Shake Russell undoubtedly will blend love songs, ballads, and waltzes, lively rockabilly tunes and soulful R&B pieces. But it is the warmth and richness of Shake Russell's melodious voice that make his concerts so special. As Bruce Bryant of Ghost Ranch Films, a fan, says, "Shake's music walks right up to you, says howdy, and gives you a big hug. His tunes make you feel happy or sad or thoughtful. Nobody writes a better love song."
Shake's songwriting and singing have brought him numerous awards over the years, including the BMI Writer's Award four times and being named Texas Music Association's Entertainer of the Year three times. His latest album is "Chasing The Song," released this spring on Howling Dog Records.

It's been five years now since Wood & Wire...
sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, Texas. In that time, they've written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country.
In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire's "band-style" ethos are not unheard of. Nor are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their Texas home, that permeate their sound. That said, what comes out of the Wood & Wire blender is something entirely its own. A culmination of very distinct musical personalities, there's one ambition they all share: "Our goal is to show up and drive, so that the energy hits you, and it's undeniable," says bassist Dom Fisher.

Wimberley Farmers Market RR 12 and River Road in Thrift Shop Parking Lot
The closest market for most Wimberley residents who prefer to eat seasonally and buy locally. Plenty of parking and variable numbers of vendors. Even when the vendor numbers are small, the produce offered is fresh and tempting. Home-made breads and cakes and candles are also regularly offered. A well-kept secret among those who love to eat fresh from the garden, but don't want to contend with the hassle and expense of garden maintenance in the rocky hill country "soil." CLICK
