Wildflower Music and Artis Festival Gig Friday

One of the great Spring festivals here in the Dallas area is the Wildflower Music and Arts Festival. I’ll be kicking off the festival, as the first act on the Acoustic Cafe Stage this Friday:

6 pm, Friday, May 19th

I’m really pleased to be playing the Acoustic Cafe Stage with members of the Dallas Songwriters Association, and really pleased to be a part of Wildflower. One of the great singer-songwriters competitions in our area takes place at Wildflower each year, and the festival is one of the biggest and best in our North Texas area. In fact, if you’ve always wanted to hear Kerrville-like performers, but have never made it down to the “the ranch,” you can get much the same experience (sans the rain, mud, sweat, and heat…) at Wildflower on the Singer-Songwriter stage in the Eisemann Center.

My set Friday will be very short. (Please hear this…) So, if you’re coming out just to hear me, please be sure and be there right at 6 pm. And if you can be there at six, it’ll be a great kick-off to the festival. The Acoustic Cafe is right next to the Eisenmann Center (here’s the map).

Hope to see you then….
