|Thursday August 28th|
|Mandy Rowden & Billy Abel 6PM
|With a sound that is equal parts Robert Johnson (their namesake) and Peter Green - the trio of guitarist Mac McNabb, bassist Chris Johnson, and drummer Kevin Lance play a version of the blues that flies north to Chicago, down through the Mississippi delta, over to late 60’s England, and back. Contrary to burgeoning legend, Johnson hasn’t made a deal with the devil…just yet…|

|Charlie Pierce 4PM
||Parker Smith 6PM
||Carl Hutchens 9PM
|Sometimes sounding like a man possessed, Charlie Pierce’s piano playing is driven and intense. During a performance, he will rattle you to the core with a heartbreaking ballad and then unleash a New Orleans inspired boogie that leaves a listener longing for the days when juke joints ruled the American landscape. charliepiercemusic.com
||In 2014 Parker moved to Austin, the live music capital of the world, and has been playing with some of the area’s finest musicians. A southern rock band in an essential way, though their songs run the gamut from sprawling, fast-paced jams to tight, quiet ballads. He is currently working on the followup to his debut album “Garden Hills” and look forward to expanding his fan base in Texas.
||I'm blessed to be able to use a wide variety of great musicians who live and work in Central Texas. Among them bass players Bill Colbert, Lynn Daniel, and Billy D. Favorite drummer Timmy Campbell. Guitarists Richard Jessee, Kenny Grimes, and Todd Barth. Others, Dobro & Keyboards Bennett Spielvogel, pianist Curt Voelkel, and fiddler Howard Kalish. www.carlhutchens.com|
