Roots Music Series at the Pioneer Museum Fredericksburg, Texas

 

July 31, 2010 – Blues Night

 

 A fund raiser for the Pioneer Museum, The Roots Music Series is a series of five live, open-air eclectic Roots music concerts on the grounds of the Pioneer Museum on Main Street in Fredericksburg, Texas. Concerts feature both emerging and established artists in an informal, family setting.  Each month brings a different genre of music with three performers a night.

 Here’s the July 31st lineup:
6 p.m. The Little Elmore Reed Blues Band – a group of Austin’s best blues musicians – starts the evening with Chicago blues, Texas style. This will be a rare performance for the band that normally plays only on Monday nights on east Austin. The members all work in other bands, but they come together to play their unique sound that combines Chicago blues, west coast swing, early rock, and New Orleans cool.

7 p.m. Lisa Marshall brings on the Rhythm & Blues. Her vocals evoke Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Mavis Staples and Janis Joplin. And her band is hard driving, gut busting, and funky.

8:40 p.m. Leeann Atherton – another Texas belter – finishes up with a steamy sound that blends gospel, folk, and blues and runs from Billie Holliday ballads to Etta James grooves.

Once again you can get a $9 meal that includes choice of 12 oz. rib-eye charbroiled and cooked to order on site, Shrimp Ettoufee, and Gumbo in a bread bowl, with sides of dinner roll, butter, new potatoes, corn on the cob plus dessert.
