Crossroads Music Company Announces Fall Line-up
Crossroads Music Company & Listening Room in Winnsboro has just announced their line-up of performers for the remainder of 2013.
Crossroads is an intimate listening environment with concerts held in the Winnsboro Center for the Arts, 200 Market Street. They are in the County Line Magazine Hall of Fame for “Best Live Music Venue.”
September 7 brings the talented and engaging Rhett Butler. USA Today described his performance as “Light hearted banter. Deadly serious playing style” and the Austin Chronicle said of Rhetts’ signature act of playing two guitars at the same time, “10 fingers, 2 guitars, and a roomful of jaws hitting the floor.” The “.org” in his website is a special story in its’ own and, hopefully, he’ll tell you about it. Learn more at www.rhettbutler.org.
September 14 features Winnsboro’s own Lynn Adler of the award winning duo of Adler & Hearne. Lynn’s wonderful voice and persona will be joined by four other female performers in a show called Women in the Round – part of the Winnsboro Center for the Arts celebration of Women in the Arts.

The crowd pleasing singer/songwriter, novelist, politician, humorist Kinky Friedman appears September 28. Visit www.kinkyfriedman.com.
October 5 brings Grammy Award Winner Brad Davis and his acoustic band to town. Brad’s playing credentials include a long list. He’s written movie scores and appeared on several network TV evening shows. His bluegrass sounds include a little like gospel music. See www.BradDavisMusic.com.
On October 12, Druha Trava comes back to town as part of their 2013 U.S. Tour. These five guys won the Andel Award, which is the Czech Republic equivalent of the Grammy, which is where they are from.

A week later, on October 18 Jimmy LaFave will be there with his “red dirt music” that he’s played around the world since the 1980’s. He’s a Kerrville Folk Festival regular and a winner of the 1995 Austin Music Awards Best Singer/Songwriter. See www.jimmylafave.com.
