Pearland House Concerts is pleased to announce our June show featuring Bob Livingston and benefiting iWrite Literacy Organization. As always dinner, iced tea and water are provided, BYOB.
Singer-songwriter Bob Livingston has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life even though he's spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful and rambunctious musicians in Texas. As a member of Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band, Livingston toured and recorded with such musical visionaries as Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey, Ray Wylie Hubbard and many more. Livingston played an integral role in helping to create the music that first earned Austin the designation of “Live Music Capital of the World” and helps explain why he was recently inducted in to “Texas Music Legends Hall of Fame” in 2016.
In a live performance with Bob Livingston, one finds a veteran singer-songwriter and a master storyteller who captures his audience from the first notes played. It's an irresistible invitation to travel down the cosmic musical highways and rutted back country roads where his rambles have taken him over the years. “What country? That’s the question.”
The iWRITE Literacy Organization inspires kids to WRITE their own stories and provides publishing and leadership opportunities to our youth.We strive to increase a young person's overall confidence through literacy. Our programs include the "i" The Guy Creative Writing Journal, which accompanies our writing ambassadors and mascot in economically disadvantaged schools across Houston. Our annual publishing contest I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids has given over 500 students in the 3rd-12th grade the opportunity to become a professionally published authors. The confidence that many of our students gain through writing has lead to public speaking and news opportunities, volunteerism, internships, scholarships and ultimately holding an officer position on our iWRITE Youth Club Board.
