Last night Tina and I went and saw Ray Wylie Hubbard, a Texas Music legend at one of our favorite venues, the Kessler theater. In one of his songs Ray mentioned a plethora of fine Texas Musicians. When we moved here ten years ago we hadn’t really thought that much about the fine music scene here or the many musicians who were born here.
But Texas is the birth place of so many artist in so many musical genres that I could probably feature five of them a day for a year and not cover all of them. Texas musicians are an important part of America’s cultural quilt.
That we still have a thriving live music scene that is cultivated should set an example to the rest of the country where live music has become scarce. Like Joni Mitchell sang, “All and all, you don’t know what you’ve got till its gone.”
