Guy Clark, "L.A. Freeway," live in Utrecht, The Netherlands, 2006
In response to last week's feature on the Conroe/The Woodlands/Montgomery County Americana scene, we've just received word from the Sounds of Texas Music Series people regarding their 2009 season. Quote-unquote, "Season tickets are going fast."
The lineup for the 2009 series at the historic (and completely restored) Crighton Theater on the square in downtown Conroe is: Los Lonely Boys with Del Castillo (Jan. 24); Chris Knight with Mark Germino (Mar. 28); Guy Clark with Jubal Lee Young (May 9); and the Flatlanders (June 6).
Season tickets are $168, individual tickets $47. They can be purchased from the Crighton Theater box office, 936-441-7469, ext. 201. For more information, see www.SoundsOfTexas.com. - William Michael Smith
