For Immediate Release
Bandera performers Lisa Beck and Kathy Bauer will headline the next Texas Music Coffeehouse at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 1, in the Lion’s Den of Schreiner University’s Floyd and Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center.
The performance in honor of Women’s History Month is free and open to the public.
A Lubbock native who grew up in San Antonio, Beck had a passion for music early on as she grew up listening to the sweet harmonies of her mom and aunt, who had performed in an all-girls quartet. When she turned 15, her uncle gave her a classical guitar, showed her three chords, and told her that was all she needed to play any country song.
Bauer is a Fredericksburg singer/songwriter who sings traditional country music, both as a solo act and fronting the Kathy Bauer Band. In the 1980s, she sang with the house band at the legendary Gilley’s in Pasadena. She then moved to Nashville, where she released a song on an independent label that cracked the Top 100.
The Coffeehouse series, six concerts each academic year, is sponsored by the Texas Heritage Music Foundation, the Schreiner University English Department, and Chartwells.
The final Coffeehouse for the spring semester, on Tuesday, April 4, will be a spoken-word session featuring Thom Moon Poet and slam poetry by the Schreiner music and English departments.
This is the 30th anniversary year of the founding of the Texas Heritage Music Foundation. For more information, contact Dr. Kathleen Hudson, director of the THMF, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 830-792-1945.
