  Chris Smither at Blue Rock - June 30th

Chris Smither at Blue Rock

Blue Rock Concert with Chris Smither

Born in Miami, during World War II, Chris Smither grew up in New Orleans where he first started playing music as a child. The son of a Tulane University professor, he was taught the rudiments of instrumentation by his uncle on his mother's ukulele. "Uncle Howard," Smither says, "showed me that if you knew three chords, you could play a lot of the songs you heard on the radio. And if you knew four chords, you could pretty much rule the world." With that bit of knowledge under his belt, he was hooked. "I'd loved acoustic music – specifically the blues – ever since I first heard Lightnin' Hopkins' Blues In My Bottle album. I couldn't believe the sound Hopkins got. At first I thought it was two guys playing guitar. My style, to a degree, came out of trying to imitate that sound I heard."
If you are in central TX, or can plan to be, reserve a seat and come on. Nothing beats true artistry among real community. See RSVP for details.
Concert Webcasts are produced with a live audience in multi-camera HD video, pristine audio, and include interviews and "behind the scenes" with artists between sets. Even better, it's a "pay what you want" ticket. Funds directly support the artists and programming at Blue Rock Live.

Blue Rock events are by private email reservation

Live Concert, $35 + tx 100% to artist

Jubilee Parade in Downtown Wimberley - July 4th 2017

Each year in Wimberley a theme is proposed for the annual parade. But in the case of the Wimberley parade, the theme is not the thing. Anything from trucks, clown cars, horses, improvised trailers, and marching feet all provide ways for entrants to make their way through Wimberley decked out in colorful costumes sharing waves and smiles with spectators, themselves an integral part of the experience.
Visitors to Wimberley are invited to bring a chair, grab a hat and sunglasses and plan to get comfortable watching a unique assembly alongside residents who enjoy this as another of Wimberley's annual events.
The main parade starts at 10 AM, with a Jubilee following. The Jubilee includes a patriotic concert by the Wimberley Community Chorus and Community Band saluting the 4th of July, followed by more live music. Food and drinks are always available.

    Kelly Willis's Website


    Kelly Willis in concert at Susanna's Kitchen Coffeehouse!

    With rockabilly roots and a heartache-meets-honky-tonk voice, Kelly Willis has been labeled a country ingénue. As a new traditionalist singer/songwriter, her tunes effortlessly combine the storytelling and strings aspects of country music and the driving force of rock. 
    After the last two joint releases (Cheater's Game in 2013 and Our Year in 2014) with husband Bruce Robison featuring duets with beautifully organic close harmonies, the reigning Austin all-Americana couple will take a creative break and pursue their own ventures.
    A true Austin treasure, Willis has had an extensive career dating back more than 25 years, when she first touched down in Texas. Beginning with rockabilly band Radio Ranch, she moved on to a solo stint with a major label and from there into a duo career with Robison, whose credits include writing the No. 1 hits “Travelin’ Soldier” (Dixie Chicks), “Wrapped” (George Strait) and “Angry All the Time” (Tim McGraw).
    For the first time since her 2007 album Translated From Love, Willis has released a new original solo work, a single titled “Flower on the Vine.”
    Doors open by 6:300 pm, concert begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets at the door: $25 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.
