Thanks to everyone who made it to Grand Stafford Theater on March 27 to see Sam Baker, Carrie Elkin, and Chip Dolan in the first installment of KEOS’s Lone Star Music Series. It was also a great pleasure to welcome opening act Claire Domingue and Coby Tate back to downtown Bryan. What a great show!
