Brigitte London and friends have grown the Last Honky Tonk Music Series from 2014 into a national movement, booking independent acts at dozens of venues: Last Honky Tonk Music Series The web site appears to be rather out of date, but it’s enough to give you an idea. As luck would have it, Kent Black’s BBQ here in San Marcos, is a host venue. Although the series is based in south Louisiana, Brigitte used to live in this region of Texas, and she knows a lot of people in a lot of places. The series is dedicated to the memory of Wayne Mills , who lived and performed in my home town of Tuscaloosa, Alabama for years. Some members of the current series roster also have ties to Tuscaloosa, including the youngest, ten-year-old Sadie McClendon.
Their newest venture is a songwriter festival in Morgan City, Louisiana, which will feature over a hundred artists: Songs On the Bayou April 5th-15th. Keep an ear open for more announcements as we get closer to time.
