Fall is here and it’s time for the 4th Annual Gram Parsons Birthday Hoot. On November 7th at Threadgill’s World Headquarters in Austin, Texas, an impressive collection of performers will gather from 6 to 10PM to celebrate the music of Gram Parsons, benefitting the Americana Music Association.
I'll lead the house band, as invited guest artists perform their favorite Gram Parson’s songs in this annual musical homage to the man whose influence on the artists and music of today’s Americana movement is still felt today. This is not only a night for Parson’s fans to remember, but an opportunity for those not familiar with his music to hear and enjoy it for the first time.
This year’s event will benefit the Americana Music Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the genre of music that Parsons helped define.
This year’s show will feature Michael Fracasso, Josh Zee and Teal Collins of the Mother Truckers, Earl P. Ball, members of Stonehoney, Freddie Steady Krc, Geoff Union of the Too High String Band, Noel Hampton, Jenny Reynolds, Ben Mallott, Idgy Vaughn, Cam King, Julieann Banks, Steve Carter, Jim Patton, Lorrie Singer, Dana McBride, Cho-Jo Jacques, Jake Carter, Gary Newcomb, Doc Simons, Daniel Simons, Rob Bollinger and Jon Hahn.
Join the league of Parsons fans to celebrate his legacy of cosmic American music and help support this great organization.
