Music Under the Star, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum’s popular free summer concert series, is back for its ninth season. Every Friday night in July, the Lone Star Plaza in front of the Bullock Museum is the place to be — where the whole family can take in some live music in a relaxed atmosphere from 6 – 9pm. This year’s lineup features nationally known Texan artists:

July 6th – Kelly Willis  with The Ruby Jane Show

July 13th – Junior Brown  with Warren Hood and the Goods

July 20th – Little Joe y la Familia with Conjuntazzo

July 27th – The Gourds with Redd Volkaert Trio

This year, the concert series is held in conjunction with Texas Music Roadtrip, the largest of its kind special exhibition on the history of Texas music. Between music sets, concert attendees are invited to explore the Museum’s exhibits free of charge.

ABOUT Texas Music Roadtrip

Texas Music Roadtrip at the Bullock Museum is the largest-ever exhibition to tell the story of the profound influence and impact of Texas music. Guest-curated by Gary Hartman, the founder of the Center for Texas Music History and the voice behind KUT’s weekly This Week in Texas Music History, the exhibit occupies 7,000 square feet and features more than 150 rare and fascinating artifacts including vintage photos, elaborate costumes, gig posters, hand-written lyrics (including by a young Willie Nelson), and a variety of historic instruments, including the baby grand piano from the Armadillo World Headquarters and an extremely rare chance to see Jimmy Vaughan’s and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Number One” Stratocaster guitar.

The Bullock Museum is located at 1800 N. Congress Avenue, at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
