San Saba Launches Texas Country Summer Music Series
San Saba has some exciting news…we are thrilled to announce our first San Saba Summer Music Series! The music series kicked off on April 14 with the Pecan Capital Street Dance XVIII and great sets from Jason Boland and The Stragglers along with Aaron McDonnell. (Thanks to everyone who came out, it was a great night!)
The Summer Music Series
Here is the nitty-gritty: each of the concerts benefits a local nonprofit organization; tickets for each concert are $15. Without further ado, here’s the lineup…
Gary P. Nunn, also considered the father of Austin’s progressive country scene, brings his signature Texas country to the Digg’s stage on May 5. The West Texas Walk of Fame member among the acclaimed ranks as Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson, and Hank Williams. Zac Stokes Band will get the crowd warmed up at 8 pm.
Jason Eady was named as one of The Rolling Stone’s top ten new country artists to watch in February 2017. We’re in luck. He’s bringing his soulfully rugged voice to the Digg’s stage on June 9. The critically-acclaimed artist croons classic country with “stripped-down, roots-oriented sound that starkly showcases the gritty elegance of his songwriting.” Aaron McDonnell, an Austin-based country artist, will be opening at 8 pm.
The Dirty River Boys are a team of four very different people shaking things up in the Texas music scene and beyond. Catch their Texas punk-Americana at Digg’s on June 23.
On July 21, we’ll be stomping the roof off of Digg’s when the Rift Music Group Showcase hits the stage. Shea Abshier and the Nightowlers, Giovannie and the Hired Guns, Ryan Wilcox & The Sunday Shakes and Dillan Poe will all be performing good ole country tunes from 8 pm until late night.
After gracing the opening slot on more than one occasion, Aaron McDonnell brings his country tunes to the headlining slot at Digg’s on August 11.
We’re happy to welcome The Bellamy Brothers back to San Saba for the Pecan Capital Street Dance XIX. David and Howard – the brothers Bellamy – have been crooning acclaimed country and pop for decades. The “Let Your Love Flow” duo closes out the Summer Music Series with plenty of hits spanning their 40-year career. The sultry Whitney Rose kicks things off at 8.
Dust off those Lucchese’s, spiff up that hat and shine that buckle – we’ve got two-steppin’ to do.
