Austin City Limits Music Festival

One fine day or weekend perhaps, I am going to plan a trip to the Austin City Limits Music Festival.  This coming weekend, you can catch some of the best singer/songwriters and bands making music.  I often argue that most current music doesn’t have enough staying power to make it through to the next generation.  However, there are a few outstanding musicians and singers who are vessels of hope in a generation of gauche pop.   One such appearance on the festival stage will be made by Sara Watkins

Sara Watkins

One third of the Nickel Creek trio, Watkins recently released her first solo album.  This long overdue record is a cold drink of water to the weary soul.  She is also featured on an amazing song from Alex Woodard, “Reno.”  Her harmony is perfect and the lyrics genius. The appearance in Austin is part of Ms. Watkins album tour, and if you are lucky enough to live in or near any city on her tour, you will not want to miss the chance.    

We always watched the show, Austin City Limits on PBS as kids, and even as an adult, the music is still exciting. 

Have fun festival goers!
