Peggy Stern

Peggy Stern

6:00 PM

Pianist, Composer & Arranger

Peggy Stern is as well-known as a composer as she is known for her fine piano playing. She arrived at jazz via classical music, R&B, and salsa. Her music has a particularly broad ethnic base - in addition to European and American classical music, Peggy's music draws from Brazilian, African, Jewish, Irish, Cuban, and traditional jazz influences.

Brian Kremer

Brian Kremer

8:00 PM

Songwriter

Brian Kremer is most noted for his smooth voice, which PopMatters calls "an evocative instrument in itself" and his original, often-melancholy folk/country tunes that Austin.com describes as "exquisitely pleasurable heartache." But he now also delivers his own guitar-centric takes on pop standards from the 1910s-1940s, making them audience favorites in Austin, as well as in Dallas, NYC, and his home state of Vermont. While building on a classical choral career that culminated in a 2003 Grammy nomination with the Dale Warland Singers, a debut solo album (2008's Climbing The Vine), and a steadily growing audience in Austin and beyond, Brian hit a wall in 2011 with tendon injuries in his hand, forcing a yearlong hiatus. The break was tough but fruitful as he refined and focused his direction - listening, writing, and honing in on this new, yet familiar sound. Brian staged his welcome-back show in July 2012 to a packed room at Austin's famed Cactus Café and is back to performing again. He's crooning, picking, whistling, and charming rooms with his signature sets of originals and classic interpretations.

8:00 PM

Springsteen-esque Singer/Songwriter

Bruce Smith continues the work praised by Eric Brace of the Washington Post as "powerful folk songs with a conscience" and what Neal Fagan of  Performing Songwriter Magazine called "literate, descriptive lyrics with a unique point of view articulated in a way that's intelligent and accessible".

Horse Opera

Horse Opera

9:00 PM

Real Country Music

Horse Opera, an original roots music band from Austin TX. Drawing on a wide variety of influences, including a strong respect for the country, bluegrass, and hillbilly music of the 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, and 70′s. Horse Opera was founded in 2006 by Jimmy Deveney, who took the name as a tip of the hat to his love of the old weekly serial cowboy western movies of the 30′s and 40′s. Horse Opera released a debut cd in 2010, "Sounds of the Desert", went on several national tours, and played the ‘Mirande Festival of Country Music' in Mirande, France in July 2010. Deveney reformed Horse Opera with an all new line up in 2012, adding Howdy Darrell on acoustic guitar, mandolin, and lead and back up vocals. This not only added Darrell's songwriting, playing and singing to the mix, it also added harmony as a major component of the band's sound. Deveney and Darrell then enlisted Heather Rae Johnson on the Fiddle and vocals, and former ‘Jesse Dayton' bassist, Rick Watson, on the upright bass. Horse Opera performs as a 4 piece, sans drums, and a 5 piece when drums are called for. Original Horse Opera drummer, Chris Wallis, assumes the throne when the need arises. After a successful official showcase at SXSW 2013 in March, and a stellar set at the Viva Big Bend festival in west Texas in July, Horse Opera set out on a 3 week western states tour. The band came home to release their new self titled cd, coming out September 24th, and play their CD release show, also September 24th, at the world famous Continental club. This show was a dual CD release with Austin favorites Brennen Leigh and Noel McKay, as they release their duet CD ‘Before the World Began'. Local Cajun fiddle favorites, Gumbo Ce Soir will opened up the show.

Starlings, TN

Starlings, TN

9:00 PM

Honky-Techno

Since 2001, Steven Stubblefield of Starlings, TN has seen it all: epic natural disasters, personal demons, nervous breakdowns, the death of a mentor and friend, the severing of a great musical partnership, moves from Nashville to Mississippi to Texas, and, at last, with the release of Heartache in 4/4 Time, the completion of a rebirth and a reconnection with his past.
