Troubadour Nights

Bob Livingston

Friday, July 7, 2017

Doors open at 7:00pm

Show Starts at 7:30pm

 

Texas Singer-songwriter BOB LIVINGSTON  has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life, even though he's spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful musicians on the planet. As a member of Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band, performing and recording with such musical visionaries like Murphey, Jerry Jeff Walker and Ray Wylie Hubbard. Livingston played an integral role in creating the music that first earned Austin the designation of 'Live Music Capital of the World'.  Achieving recognition in their own right, the Gonzos’ self-titled debut record on MCA was named by Rolling Stone Magazine, "...one of the best albums ever to come out of Austin."

 

Livingston has seen a lot of the world since growing up in musically fertile West Texas. Hailing originally from Lubbock, his interests were more 'Cosmic' than 'Cowboy' and have prompted him to delve into the music and mysteries of many cultures. Traveling since since 1987 as a Music Ambassador for the US State Department, Livingston has taken Texas music as far afield as India, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, demonstrating again and again the unique power that music has to build bridges between peoples of the world. As Livingston says, 'When all else fails, music prevails'. This philosophy earned him the honor of being appointed, 'Austin’s International Music Ambassador', in November of 2009 by the City Council right before a tour of Africa.

 

This world-traveled view was reflected in Livingston's 2004 CD, 'Mahatma Gandhi & Sitting Bull' released on Vireo Records and named in the Austin American-Statesman's "Top 10 List." In 2008, Vireo released a compilation called, 'Original Spirit', that includes 'Gandhi & Bull' in its entirety and several more surprise tracks from Livingston's Lost Gonzo Band days. But it's his latest CD, 'Gypsy Alibi', that is defining Livingston's new musical direction. Released in 2011 on New Wilderness Records, 'Gypsy Alibi' is co-produced by Lloyd Maines and won "Album of the Year" at the Texas Music Awards that year. It has more of a folk-rock/Americana spirit than his last outing and is still enjoying radio airplay around the country and abroad. Listen to "Ruby's Shoes, "Country Western Swing," and "Androids Lament."

Susan Gibson

Friday, October 6, 2017

Doors open at 7:00pm

Show starts at 7:30pm

Anyone who meets singer-songwriter Susan Gibson will know immediately that her family is a core foundation in everything she does, from the songs she writes to the tour routes she takes.

Whether it’s hearing her stories from the stage at one of hundreds of live shows around the country each year, sitting in on a songwriting workshop or coaching session with her, or running into her on the street in your town while she’s walking her 5 dogs on a break from driving to the next show...you will hear Susan speak of her family.

It’s her mom, Nancy Gibson, who inspired the title track of Susan’s latest EP, “Remember Who You Are.” Susan says, “My mom said that her mom always used to tell her and her sisters, "Remember who you are" every time they left the house. I don't know if that was before or after they got caught drinking beer with a bunch of their friends and gave fake names to the Crofton, Nebraska police, but it's something that she always told me and my sister as soon as we were old enough to leave the house. I would find it in notes in my lunch and written halfway into journals that I hadn't written in yet. She would write notes to us on banana peels with a toothpick and the words would turn brown-- like reverse invisible ink. She was an awesome mom. We were lucky to have her as our constant.” Nancy is also the catalyst for another song on the EP, “The Best of You,” written about surviving cancer. While Nancy lost her battle with lung cancer in 2013, Susan wrote it in honor of those who have fought cancer, be it the survivors themselves or the ones left behind. “I decided that instead of feeling sorry for myself, my mom would have wanted me to write this.”

Terri Hendrix and Llyod Maines

Friday, December 8,2017

Doors open at 7:00pm

Shows starts at 7:30pm

Terri Hendrix is a pioneering independent Texas songwriter who spins sorrow into joy and wrings wisdom from the blues with a poetic grace and engaging melodic flair that has endeared her to three generations of loyal fans around the globe. A classically trained vocalist and accomplished multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin, and harmonica) recently recognized by “Acoustic Guitar” Magazine as one of Texas’ 20 essential contemporary singer-songwriters, she is also one of its most prolific — having averaged nearly an album a year going all the way back to her 1996 debut, “Two Dollar Shoes.” To date, every one of her albums has been released on her own Wilory Records label, making Hendrix the rare artist who has owned all of her master recordings from day one. That autonomy has allowed her the freedom to dodge musical pigeonholes her entire career by weaving folk, pop, country, blues and swinging jazz into an eclectic style all her own — a playful mix that makes for a highly energetic and spiritually uplifting live show in any setting, from intimate listening rooms and theaters to outdoor festivals. Along the way, she’s also co-written a Grammy-winning instrumental (the Dixie Chicks’ “Lil’ Jack Slade”), and garnered such honors as a star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame, the Art of Peace Award by Saint Mary’s University in San Antonio, the Distinguished Alumni Award at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, and a 2015 induction into the Women’s Hall of Fame in San Marcos, Texas. Now well into her third decade as a performing artist, Hendrix is currently in the midst of running a “sonic marathon” she calls “Project 5,” which by the time she finishes it will comprise four thematically-linked albums and a memoir. The first album, an intimate folk record called “Love You Strong,” was released in February 2016; it was followed in October by “The Slaughterhouse Sessions,” a politically charged collection of acoustic gospel blues. The next two albums — an electronica EP called “Who Is Ann?” and an eclectic singer-songwriter full-length called “Talk to a Human” — are both due out by summer 2017. Last but not least will be the book, a deeply personal account of Hendrix’s lifelong battle with epilepsy and the path she’s braved to wellness. In addition to all of this (and teaching workshops, like her annual “Life’s a Song” retreat in the fall), Hendrix is also hard at work building a nonprofit creative center for the arts serving the greater San Marcos area and beyond. It’s called the OYOU, an acronym for “Own Your Own Universe” — words that this free-spirited, self-made woman has lived and thrived by her entire adult life.

Shake Russell, Michael Hearne, and Bill Hearne Trio

Friday, June 9, 2017

Doors open at 7:00pm

Show Starts at 7:30pm

For more than three decades, Texas singer-songwriter Shake Russell has been entertaining audiences throughout the region with his unique, Americana style of folk-rock. A prolific songwriter, Shake has written or co-written hundreds of melodies. Through the years, Shake’s songs and albums have frequented the Billboard charts, with many, including “Deep in the West,” “You’ve Got a Lover,” “Put Yourself in My Shoes,” “One More Payment,” and “Our Kind of Love” being recorded by such distinguished artists as Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter, Ricky Skaggs, Clint Black, and Carolyn Dawn Johnson. Ricky Skagg’s hit recording of “You’ve Got a Lover” has appeared on three of Ricky’s albums. In 1983 Shake was commissioned by the Texas State University in San Marcos to write a song ,''River of Innocence''. for a documentary filmed and produced by the university. In 1986, Shake was asked by longtime friend Bruce Bryant, creative producer at Houston television station KTRK, to compose a theme song commemorating the Texas sesquicentennial. He obliged and wrote the regional favorite, “Traveling Texas.”

C. Daniel Boling

Saturday, February 4,2017

Doors Open at 7:00pm

Show Starts at 7:30pm

Winner of the prestigious Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk songwriter contest, Daniel shares experiences from a life well-lived in places as far-ranging as Japan, Okinawa, and Padre Island, Texas. With his well-crafted story songs and friendly tenor this balladeer /songwriter delights audiences coast-to-coast in over one hundred shows a year, from House Concerts and listening rooms to major festivals (Kerrville, Winfield, Woody Guthrie, and others).

Born into a traveling Air Force family, he later worked as a National Park Ranger (yes, the gun-toting kind) and as a Criminal Investigator for the US Bureau of Land Management. He started touring at 50, an age when most guys are planning their retirement. He’s released seven albums since 1999 -- the most recent, THESE HOUSES, was produced by Jono Manson and released April of 2016 on the Berkalin Records songwriter label.

Daniel’s songs tell interesting stories about a variety of unusual characters, including himself. He plays the guitar and banjitar (a banjo/guitar hybrid) with a deft fingerpicking style that always enhances the stories, and a bit of harmonica into the bargain. His clear tenor draws positive comparisons to John Denver and Pete Seeger, and like Pete, Daniel is happiest when his audiences sing too!

There’s a lot of Steve Goodman in Daniel’s delivery and storytelling. You can also hear the influence of other classic folk singers and songs from the great American folk tradition. It’s no surprise that iconic Appalachian folk singer Jean Ritchie is his second cousin. He’s had the pleasure to share the stage with Tom Chapin, Small Potatoes, Jack Williams, Tim Henderson, John Flynn and many more. He’s won numerous songwriting awards including Walnut Valley Festival, Santa Fe bluegrass and Old Time Festival, Albuquerque Folk Festival, Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, and the granddaddy of them all – the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Songwriter Award.

There’s a reason that Still on the Hill calls him “one of the most talented songwriters on the circuit.” Whether or not you’ve walked the very same roads, you can’t help but relate to these songs – and no matter what your story is, you’ll love Daniel’s.

Sarah Pierce Band

 

Friday, December 16
7:30PM

Doors Open at 7:00pm
 

Sarah Pierce, the daughter of a cowboy, raised in a family of cattlemen, was born in Rockford, Illinois and raised in rural West Texas. In the 6th grade she was kicked out of the children’s choir because she sang too low...her incredible alto voice already making itself be known. She would later get on her mare and sing to the cattle in the fields, as Pierce says “They didn’t seem to mind”.

Sarah has performed several times at the Blue Sage Hall. She is definitely one of our favorites. Don't miss this night of music and dance to celebrate the season with Sarah Pierce and her band.

July 9, 2016, Troubadour Nights presents... LEE ROY PARNELL

Lee Roy Parnell is part of a long line of Texas roots-music eclectics and is among the elite few who can be identified as a triple threat. An ace guitarist, as well as a distinctive singer, and hit songwriter, his music runs the gamut of diversity. Combining the influences of Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House Rock, Southern Boogie, Texas Swing, and Gospel, Parnell’s sound defies conventional classification. He draws from a broad range of musical sources and combines them with seamless dexterity and, unlike many other hard-to-pigeonhole artists, Parnell has enjoyed a run of success on the country and blues charts.

Parnell was born in Abilene, TX, on December 21, 1956, and grew up on his parents’ ranch. His father had toured with a teenage Bob Wills in traveling medicine shows, and Lee Roy’s first public performance came on Wills’ radio show at age six. As a teenager, he played drums in a local band and soon picked up guitar as well, eventually concentrating on slide playing. He joined Kinky Friedman’s Texas Jewboys in his late teens and moved to Austin in 1974 to join the city’s budding music scene. Parnell spent over a decade playing clubs in Austin, Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, and New York while honing his style and songwriting.

Lee Roy moved to Nashville in 1987, where he quickly landed a publishing contract with Polygram Music, and a regular spot at the famed Bluebird Cafe. In 1989, he signed to Clive Davis’ Arista Records, led by friend and mentor, Tim Dubois. Produced by Barry Beckett, of the world-famous Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, Parnell’s self-titled debut album featured a collection of horn-driven country-soul. It received good reviews but didn’t break him commercially; that would happen with 1992′s Love Without Mercy, which emphasized Parnell’s searing slide guitar skills. “What Kind of Fool Do You Think I Am” and “Tender Moment” both went to number two on the charts, and the title track also made the Top Ten. 1993′s On the Road produced two more Top Tens with its title track and “I’m Holding My Own.” The Hank Williams / Ray Charles hit, “Take These Chains From My Heart” also made the Top 20.

In 1995, Lee Roy was asked to help launch Arista’s sister label, Career Records, with the release of We All Get Lucky Sometimes. The album spawned two Top Five hits in “A Little Bit of You” and “Heart’s Desire” and featured duets with Trisha Yearwood and Mary Chapin Carpenter. “A Little Bit of You” was also a #1 hit on the Radio and Records Magazine charts; a first for a brand new label. During this time, Parnell’s sound was becoming more defined by roots and soul music. He was also allowed the creative freedom to record with some of his heroes, such as Tex-Mex accordionist Flaco Jimenez. Their collaboration on the track “Cat Walk” garnered a Grammy Nomination for Best Country Instrumental. Parnell released “Every Night’s A Saturday Night” in 1997. The album included another duet with Trisha Yearwood and the Grammy nominated boogie-woogie instrumental, “Mama Screw Your Wig On Tight,” which was written and produced by Lee Roy and his entire band, “The Hot Links” (James Pennebaker / Kevin McKendree / Lee Roy Parnell / Lynn Williams / Stephen Mackey). Next up was Parnell’s “Hits and Highways Ahead” in 1999. Lee Roy’s recording of the Son House tune, “John The Revelator,” featuring the “Fairfield Four,” garnered a CMA nomination for Vocal Event of The Year. The album also included the popular track “Honky Tonk Night Time Man,” handpicked and sent to him by Lee Roy’s good friend and mentor, the legendary Merle Haggard. An official video was also produced for the song “Lucky You, Lucky Me.”

Following his deal at Arista and Career, Parnell was ready to expand his musical horizons and partnered up with the rootsy Vanguard label in Los Angeles. His debut album with them was 2001′s Tell the Truth, which was recorded at the world-renowned Muscle Shoals Sound by Johnny Sandlin (chief engineer for Capricorn Records and The Allman Brothers Band). In keeping with his quest for more artistic freedom, he teamed back up with Universal South in 2006, to return to the studio to record Back to the Well. This album delved even further into his blues and southern soul roots. With the release of this album, Parnell received some very rare support from Gibson Guitars with a series of guitar clinics interwoven with tour dates across the country in a custom Gibson tour bus. Lee Roy’s relationship with Gibson and the Les Paul is not a new one. Parnell’s first Goldtop was a 1956 model he bought when he was 15-years-old and was his only guitar well into his 30’s. Although he experimented for a few years after that with different guitars, searching for his own sound, he ultimately returned to his first love, the 1956 Les Paul Goldtop in 2001 and helped Gibson reinvigorate the model. Talks then came about to develop a Lee Roy Parnell signature model and culminated with a final eight months of arduous development, producing Gibson’s Lee Roy Parnell Signature ’57 Les Paul Goldtop. You can read more information about the guitar at gibson.com.

The year 2011 brought Lee Roy Parnell what is probably his most cherished honor to date, when he was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. Parnell continues to produce and write with some of the most influential songwriters and recording artists nationwide as co-partner in his music publishing company, Dean Parnell Music, and is currently preparing for his first independent release.

Writers in the Round

Butch Morgan

Claude Butch Morgan is a triple threat on the Texas music scene; he is a songwriter, storyteller, and guitarist who is constantly pushing his limits as a performer. He honed his chops as a guitar player in various USO bands while in the military during Vietnam, then came home to the San Antonio area and became known across Texas for his lead guitar skills and his energetic performance style. He found his songwriter groove at The Kerrville Folk Festival and was a finalist for New Folk in 2005 and 2008 and a winner of the Wildflower Performing Songwriters contest in 2004. A “Singer/Songwriter of the Year” nominee at the Texas Music Awards in 2012, Morgan continues to grab audiences with his songwriting and storytelling, punctuated by the taste and tone of a world class guitarist. Morgan’s 2013 album, Dry, is an extremely personal look into Morgan’s life and history. Co-produced with Chris Gage at Moonhouse Studio in Austin, Dry was recorded live in the studio with Trevor Doak Morgan (drums) and Robert
Robar Adams (bass). While the musical approach may be pared down compared to other projects, the songs are quintessentially Claude Butch
Morgan...winding in and out of heartbreak, humor, smart lyrics, and elevating melodies. He plans to spend 2013 touring Texas and beyond to bring the
new album and a live show like none other to Morgan fans old and new.

Jana Pochop

Jana Pochop (the 'h' is still silent) hails from the culturally rich Albuquerque, NM, where she earned a degree in History from the University of New Mexico. She says it was at the University where she learned how to learn...a skill that she uses constantly while maneuvering the ever-changing music business. She honed her performance chops at open mics and opening slots, and in 2006, moved to Austin to close the gap in her pursuit of a career in music.

She has allied with many of the central Texas music makers like Terri Hendrix, Susan Gibson, Elizabeth Wills, Michael O'Connor and Drew Kennedy. She has gotten a lot of 'in the field' experience by traveling with Gibson as booking agent / tour manager / documentarian / opening act and merch girl.

Jana knows first hand that all independent singer songwriters must be part entertainer, part entrepreneur. Besides the musical mark Jana is making, she has carved another niche by helping other musicians reach their goals. Her mantra is "community and content" and she started her own consulting business, Social Thinkery. While wearing her Thinkery cap, she helps musicians and other small business improve their web presence and engage their community. But she's not only the president and CEO of Social Thinkery, she's also a client! In 2013 she overfunded her Kickstarter campaign by 30%, truly a testament to the fact that Jana's fans will put their money where her mouth is. Throats are Quarries is the latest, shiniest diamond to come from Jana Pochop.
