The Bowery Stage Spring Line Up Is Hard to Beat for Americana Fans
Ari Hest plays The Bowery Stage May 5.
The Bowery Stage in Winnsboro has an exciting spring lineup. First, on March 2, is the Bill Hearne Trio with a little Texas and Western Swing mix and local duo Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne open the show, making it a family affair.
Americana/Swedish folk singer Sofia Talvik takes the stage March 12 for a Monday-night show. East Oregonian says Talvik “is among the likes of Judy Collins, Joan Baez, Allison Krauss, Linda Rondstadt, in that her greatest instrument is her voice.”
The Michael Martin Murphey show March 17 is sold out.
Singer/songwriter and Appalachian mountain dulcimer player Bing Futch returns to The Bowery Stage for the third time March 31. He is also conducting a Celtic Music Workshop before the show at 3 p.m. for $35 which includes admission to the concert.
Texas country/rock singer/songwriter Joe Ely takes the stage April 28. He’s in the Texas Songwriters Hall of Fame and was the official Texas State Musician in 2016. Ely also performs March 31 at Big Beat Dallas and April 21 in Waxahachie at Chataqua Auditorium.
Ari Hest plays The Bowery Stage May 5. His most recent LPs include the Grammy nominated Silver Skies Blue in 2016, a duets album with Judy Collins and his ninth LP, Natural, released in the spring of 2017. Many of Hest’s songs appeared on TV and film including The Path, The Lincoln Lawyer, Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill to name a few.
