This week we chat with former Austinite musician Bill Poss who now lives in Effingham, IL where he’s doing all kinds of things to promote live music and songwriting in his home town. We play a few songs from Texas artists that will be peforming/have performed at the Moccasin Creek Festival in Effingham on June 23-25.
Plus a whole lot of other surprises and fun times. Enjoy!
Some blues, some songs with blue in the title, and some songs that have nothing to do with the blues or the color blue.
In spite of having a loose theme, I think this is one of the most diverse shows I’ve done so far.
I also chat with LuraFaye Motley, the matron of arts in Edna, Texas.
Enjoy music from Brave Combo, Gene Austin, Dana Falconberry, Lou Ann Barton, Lavelle White, Bob Schneider, and more!
I’ve done my best to pay tribute to Cheatham Street Warehouse, in San Marcos, TX. Owner and Singer-Songwriter Kent Finlay turned an old cotton warehouse that opened up to the train tracks into a legendary music hall that fostered amazing talents and continues to do so to this day.
In this episode we play artists that learned the ropes at Cheatham Street and some bands that used to play there a lot. We also chat with Kent Finlay’s son, Sterling.
