Dale Watson and his Lone Stars

Dale Watson

Blackjack

Dale Watson is old school. He’s flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades and Dale has christened his brand of American roots “Ameripolitan” to differentiate it from current crop of Nashville-based pop country.

The Alabama-born, Texas-raised Watson may be the hardest working entertainer today and is rapidly approaching legendary status following appearances on Austin City Limits and The Sun Sessions. He is a country music maverick, a true outlaw who is one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State.

But we won’t hold that against him since he has now moved to Memphis after 25 years in Austin and continues to make great new music. His latest, Blackjack, features 20 of his greatest songs re-recorded in excellent fidelity and joined by the brand-new title track.

Tickets are $35 at the door or $30 in advance. Doors and Potluck at 6 p.m., music at 7 p.m.

Willis Alan Ramsey with special guest Jared Tyler

Willis Alan Ramsey

For the past 40 some odd years, Willis Alan Ramsey keeps getting asked when he is going to release a followup to his 1972 debut, Willis Alan Ramsey.

Willis Alan RamseyThat album featured Leon Russell on piano, keyboards and vibraphone and a legendary lineup that included Carl Radle, Jim Keltner, Red Rhodes and Russ Kunkel.

Songs on that record have been recorded by Jimmy Buffet, Jerry Jeff Walker, Waylon Jennings, Shawn Colvin, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Widespread Panic and others. His song, Boy From Oklahoma, is one of the two best songs ever written about Woody Guthrie along with Bob Childers’ Woody’s Road.

How do you follow something like that?

Carefully. Willis has been writing new songs ever since and finding just the right ones for another masterpiece takes time.

We’re pleased that he’ll be joining us for our fifth annual post-Woodyfest show with those new songs at our annual tribute to Woody Guthrie. Jared Tyler whose cover of Boy From Oklahoma opened the fundraising CD for WoodyFest in 2005 will open this show for Willis.

Tickets are $35 at the door or $30 in advance. Doors and Potluck at 6 p.m., music at 7 p.m.

Annual FUNdraiser & BBQ with Desi and Cody and special guests Kalyn Fay and Rachel LaVonne

Desi and Cody

Yes, This is Killing UsThe last time Desi and Cody were here in 2015 they had just returned from Folk Alliance in Kansas City. It’s is a great place for music, but also a Petri dish for all kinds of germs you don’t know want to know about. We weren’t sure Cody was going to make it that night, but he pulled through like the trooper he is and it was a great night from our second year of concerts.

Kalyn Fay

Since then, Desirae Roses-Clinton and Cody Clinton have played all over, including SXSW in Austin just in March, but they’re also on the cusp of releasing a new recording that that takes the couple in a bold new direction. It’s called, Yes, This is Killing Us, which they describe as a “dark comedy”, but hopefully isn’t — killing them. They’ll be coming in with a full band this time and the album will hit stores in June.

They’ll be joined by Kalyn Fay and Rachel LaVonne, two very talented young Oklahoma songwriters. Because it’s a FUNdraiser, we’ll have supper next door at the Vassar Center with assorted auction and raffle opportunities and some great, great food as part of our side dish potluck.

Tickets are $40 at the door or $35 in advance. Potluck at 5:30 p.m., music at 7 p.m. A $10 donation is suggested for the potluck supper.
