Saengerhalle - One of my favorite places in the entire state of Texas. If you are in the New Braunfels area, be sure to check out this neat, old fashioned dance hall!*****update: it's no longer a dance hall, was sold, and now the residence of a Church of Christ. I gotta leave the name up here, was one of the coolest places on the planet, and it's a sin it's a church. May it rest in peace, and may the spirits of the music and people who graced the doors haunt the place with a "yee haw" or "woo hoo" now and then.*****
Gruene Hall - Slated as the oldest dance hall in Texas, this place has great, LIVE music and good cold beer. Some very famous people have played the stage here! There are often special events, and there's lots of good food within walking distance. A must see place on a trip to beautiful Gruene! Say hello to Tracie there for me if you see her!!
Pickin' In the Pines - This one is my favorite of all music festivals, bar none. Held in May and September, camping is limited to about 300 people, many of whom will be familiar faces to anyone who loves attending Texas/Americana music shows. T-Roy Miller and his family are the hosts for this event. Days are spent relaxing under the beautiful East Texas pines, evenings are filled with the finest of performers, and late night plays host to the campfires adorned with singers ( good, bad, young and old!) until the wee hours or sometimes bright hours of the morning.
Roots on the River Festival - Held in the beautiful town of Bellows Falls, Vermont, we trekked all the way from Texas three years in a row to enjoy a wonderful weekend of Americana music. Originally begun as a Fred Eaglesmith weekend, it has evolved into Eaglesmith's band being the headliner to a first rate music festival.
