A warm, classic Texas tone and crunching, bluesy guitar solos bring this band beyond the standard pop country currently filling the airwaves.
Folk Family Revival is one of those bands that could open for a mainstream Nashville country act, an indie folk band or even bands like Beaumont’s country and folk-tinged Ruxpins or Ramblin’ Boys, which integrates punk rock into their particular brand of country.
Adam Carroll & Chris Carroll - April 25 9:00pm
A Texas Songwriter born and raised, (East Texas) Adam Carroll takes the events of ordinary lives and turns them into deeply moving, often humorous songs.
With seven Indie CDs supporting regular tours across the USA, Canada and Europe as “one of the hippest songwriters on the Texas music landscape”, this engaging Americana guitar-picker has earned further critical acclaim with song placements in the Grammy nominated film, Country Strong and others.
Adam's better half, Chris Carroll, is a Canadian born- Texas based, singer songwriter. Her music does a little bit of genre hopping, pulling in influences from all of the map, but still deeply steeped in the Americana roots that have the ability to draw in an audience. Chris has recently released her debut record, Trouble and Time.

This is music so soulful, so good, so real, you will feel like you've been to church, but it's also so darn sexy that you'll feel like you need to go to church again by Sunday. Dan's honest, bluesy, folksy, funky and downright heart-grabbing tunes will make you pay attention, sway along, and want more. His voice, his band, and his musicianship will not disappoint. If you missed him at Big Nac, now's your chance.
Wood & Wire - August 14 9:00pm
They're back!!!!! These guys have a driving acoustic sound and are one of the most respected string bands in Texas. They have sold out the last two times here and have developed a great following.
Anyone wondering about Wood & Wire’s sound need not look any further than the four-piece band’s name, which honors the purity of acoustic instruments and the gorgeous music a skilled artist can coax out of just simple wood and wire.
The Austin-based band’s self-titled debut album released this year is an engaging collection of music that is deeply rooted in bluegrass traditions, although the members themselves draw upon country and Americana and listen to everything from Doc Watson to Led Zeppelin.
