What do you find in Kerrville out in the hills? Great folk music

Posted: May 23rd, 2015. 0 Comments.


Growing up in Kerrville, my elementary school mascot was the scorpions.

Scorpions, cedar trees, and great folk music are abundant in Kerr County this time of year, so I'm headed to Kerrville Folk Festival on Monday night to play songs as part of the Celebration of Life for Segle Fry, Kent Finlay, and Steve Fromholz. 

Songs also to be played by Bill Hearne, Bob Livingston, Craig Hillis, and HalleyAnna Finlay so its bound to be a big time-- 7pm in the Threadgill Theater

Samuel Clemens

Hello to my musical friends of the great state that gave us Samuel Clemens- (big thanks for that, by that way)

I will be making a few stops in your neck of the woods, and if your schedule allows, would be great to see you.

Also: any can't miss food/cafe/diner/BBQ recommendations between Osage Beach, Columbia, and Kansas City would be much appreciated!

Best, OT

In Honor of Her First Lost Tooth

and your tongue can now check out the vacant spot
and feel the unfamiliar edges of the neighbor teeth
who barely know what big changes happened this morning
and you are feeling lighter, looser, more wiggly yourself
