Music Under the Star 2012 Continued:
Fridays, July 20, 27 from 6 – 9 pm FREE
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. Rain or shine! This year’s lineup features nationally known Texan artists:
July 20: Little Joe y La Familia and Conjuntazzo
Little Joe & La Familia has long been one of the most popular Tex-Mex bands in the music industry. A five-time Grammy Award winner, Little Joe has been entertaining more than 50 years and has been described as the “King of the Brown Sound”. He also helped pioneer “Tex-Mex”, a mix of traditional norteno, country, blues and rock music.
Talented, versatile and inspiring, the power couple of accordionist/producer/arranger Joel Guzman and singer/songwriter Sarah Fox has been one of the most prolific and influential duos in Central and South Texas. Their music runs the gamut from rock and blues to jazz and Americana.
July 27: The Gourds and the Redd Volkaert Trio
Recently, these artists performed- July 6: Kelly Willis and The Ruby Jane Show July 13: Junior Brown and Warren Hood and the Goods
This year, the concert series is held in conjunction with the special exhibition Texas Music Roadtrip, the largest of its kind exhibit on the history of Texas music. Between music sets, concert attendees are invited to explore the Museum’s exhibits free of charge.
Free music, free museum admission, even free parking… and in years past there have been other free surprises and treats.
