Event Description:
Fresh new sounds await Americana fans at the next Roots Music concert at the Pioneer Museum in Fredericksburg on Saturday, June 25 as Shawn Nelson, The Trishas, and Rockin Acoustic Circus perform. The Trishas are four gals who share an affinity for music that defies definition. Each vocalist brings a fresh approach to the sound - from blues and punk rock to country and Motown. They have wowed crowds and performed with Dwight Yoakum, Rodney Crowell, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and sang with Ray Wylie Hubbard and Joe Walsh. They perform at 7 p.m. Topping off the evening at 8:40 p.m., another Roots music “find” is Rockin’ Acoustic Circus - who performed for the first time here last season and return with their bluegrass fusion and youth appeal. Mostly teenagers, the members are experts on guitar, fiddle, and mandolin, and the lineup includes cello for a surprising sound. Texas native Shawn Nelson starts the music at 6 p.m. Nelson grew up on and performs pure Austin/Americana/Roots music that reflects influences from cowboy to hippie, for kids as well as their grandparents. Beginning at 5 p.m., guests can enjoy the Longhorn Street Cafe’s grilled-to-order ribeye or chicken-fried ribeye, green bean almandine, mashed potato, dinner roll and peach cobbler - all for $10. Guests can purchase wine, beer, sodas, and water. The Pioneer Museum is located at 325 West Main Street in Fredericksburg, with event entrance on Milam Street. Parking is free, and guests are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs. Admission is $12. Students high school age and younger are free. A $2 discount is available for advance online ticket sales or web page printout at www.pioneermuseum.net. Upcoming genres include Cajun/Zydeco Night in July, Blues in August, a Roots “Remix” in September, and an added indoor concert for October. (Detailed schedule at www.pioneermuseum.net) Net proceeds support the mission of the Gillespie County Historical Society.
