KUTX Live: Texas Songwriters' Circle

Friday, May 16 8:00p

KUTX Live presents Texas Songwriters' Circle, featuring Butch Hancock, James McMurtry and Kevin Russell.
We are pleased to invite three outstanding Texas songwriters to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime song swap. Butch Hancock of the Flatlanders will be joined by perennial Austin favorites James McMurtry and Kevin Russell (The Gourds, Shinyribs) for an acoustic evening of songs, stories, and collaboration. Stateside at the Paramount was built for shows like this one.
