Shinyribs is the continuation of Kevin Russell’s musical journey that began in Beaumont, TX when, at 14, he found his father’s guitar under his bed, along with a sewing machine, a billy club and a box of comic books. Luckily he chose the guitar. A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip shaking, belly laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on, kissed on by this world-class band.

Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock have been friends for almost 40 years, and members of that not-really-a-band, life-of-its-own musical entity known as The Flatlanders for nearly as long. Joining them for this show is songwriting icon Dan Penn, who stunned a Stateside crowd with an incredible performance last fall.
When Rob Lowe and Michael Muller founded Balmorhea in 2006, their goals and expectations were modest, as they created music to share with friends and family, and slowly developed a following in their hometown of Austin and beyond. Now Balmorhea is bringing Clear Language to life with a full band of multi-instrumentalists. The ensemble will be enshrouded in a light/video projection that’s being developed to mirror the emotional tone of Clear Language.

McGuinn has been making music since his teen years back in the ’50s. With over half a century of experience under his belt the man certainly knows his way around rock and folk.

With her fourth album, Undercurrent, Sarah Jarosz makes a studied departure from her previous records, shifting the emphasis from her skills as a multi-instrumentalist to her songwriting and vocal performance. Undercurrent accentuates the growth and maturity that Jarosz, now 25, has achieved since graduating from New England Conservatory and moving to New York City.

Ray Wylie Hubbard writes the kind of songs that make you want to ride along no matter where he’s going, because you know it’s gonna get strange somewhere along the way. Anyone who’s followed him over the long and winding path he has traveled already knows he possesses the kind of exceptional gift for observation that any songwriter yearns for.
Sunday, November 19
Seven-time Grammy winner and film and television sensation Gladys Knight is back at the Paramount Theatre. Knight has recorded more than 38 albums and charted No. 1 hits in Pop, Gospel, R&B and Adult Contemporary. She has more than earned the title of Empress of Soul.

Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis are often described as one of the finest roots duos working in Texas with organic harmonies that can only come from a whole lotta life lived together. This annual family-friendly tradition puts concertgoers of all ages in the holiday spirit with a warm celebration. The singer-songwriter husband-and-wife duo will perform alongside special guest Rodney Crowell.
