Bowery Stage Concert Schedule

Concert Schedule for 2020

The Bowery Stage is an intimate 88 seat listening room and musicians tell us that the acoustics provide some of the best sounds they’ve experienced.  We usually have two 45 minute sets with an intermission that provides an opportunity to meet the performer(s). You are welcome to bring a bottle of wine and we’ll supply the glasses and uncorking for a small donation.  Small fruit plates and other refreshments are available.  Performers love us!

Beyond the Pale

February 15 - 7:30 pm

True to their name, Beyond The Pale delivers a wild musical ride outside the boundaries of convention. Delighting audiences for over fifteen years, the band is grounded in the traditional roots music of America, Ireland and Northern Europe with imaginative ventures across musical borders. Where else can you experience fiery reels, haunting ballads, outrageously humorous songs and music from around the world including Mexican polkas and Texas swing?

Sofia Talvik

March 14 - 7:30 pm

This lovely lady from Sweden is coming back! Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy. A veteran performer with 6 full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her.

Mary Gauthier with Jaimee Harris

March 28 - 7:30 pm

There is nothing trivial about Mary Gauthier’s tenth album, Rifles & Rosary Beads (Thirty Tigers), all eleven songs co-written with and for wounded veterans. Eleven of the nearly four hundred songs that highly accomplished songwriters have co-written as part of the five-year-old Songwriting With Soldiers program. Participants of the program have shared that the experience of songwriting was life changing for them, some even said life saving. Something about writing that song —telling that story —is healing.

John McEuen & the String Wizards present: Will the Circle Be Unbroken

April 17 - 7:00 pm

John McEuen brings with him 50+ years of worldwide performing with his banjo, fiddle, guitar, and mandolin. Often referred to as ‘the String Wizard’, he weaves stories of his travels and family life (he has raised 7 kids), taking us through where his musical path has taken him.
A Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founding member in 1966, John initiated the 1972 classic Will the Circle Be Unbroken album, (inducted in to the Library of Congress as ‘one of America’s most important recordings’). Proud of being an integral part of America’s first band to go to Russia (28 sold out shows in 1977!), John’s love of performing has been evident since his teenage Magic Shop days in Disneyland. McEuen’s show takes us ‘behind the curtain’ of the music world that so many of us know of only as listeners and shows us how we have all been a part of it, more than we may know.

Monica Rizzio

April 18 - 7:30 pm

In 2017, Quitman native now from Cape Cod, Monica Rizzio stepped on our stage and, in a sold-out homecoming concert, played a show ranging from Americana Roots to a little bit of country featuring cuts from her CD “Washashore Cowgirl”! Now she’s coming back – April 18, 2020! The locals call someone who moves to Cape Cod but was not born there a Washashore. This young Texas girl barrel-raced on Pleasant Valley Ranch here in Wood County and had never seen the ocean. So when Monica Rizzio crossed over the iconic bridges of Cape Cod in 2004, she instantly became the Washashore Cowgirl.

Jo-El Sonnier

An Evening of Stories and Music

April 25 - 7:30 pm

The music of Jo-EL Sonnier is a way of life. Steeped in passion, relentless dedication…he has been the undisputed “King of Cajun” for the past 25 years and occupies a significant place in the rich artistic landscape of this country. His fans are un-deniably dedicated, while the music industry elite – Dylan, Costello and Hank Williams Jr., to name a few, admire his work to no end.

Beat Root Revival

May 16 - 7:30 pm

Beat Root Revival is quietly making a big noise. They’ve just played gigs at Poor David’s Pub in Dallas, where David Card said they were definitely on their way up, and at the Big Barn Dance in Taos where Lindy Hearne said “Beat Root Revival is an amazing duo that brought the house down at the Big Barn Dance. I highly recommend them!”. They’ll be opening for Brian Wilson at the Count Basie Theater in NJ in October followed by a Kerrville Folk Festival show and in November will debut at the famed “Blue Door” in Oklahoma City!

Hailey Sandoz & Kristyn Harris

June 13 - 7:30 pm

In the recent International Western Music Association Awards event, Hailey Sandoz walked away with the 2019 Instrumentalist of the Year award for the second time and Kristyn Harris received both the 2019 Female Performer of the Year as well as the 2019 Entertainer of the Year! The two of them will return together to The Bowery Stage, having performed there earlier this year in the First Annual Winnsboro Cowboy Poetry Gathering.

Thanks to County Line Magazine for their support
of live music on The Bowery Stage and in all of East Texas!
