KEOS 89.1 FM welcomes Walt Wilkins and Tina Mitchell Wilkins in concert on Friday, June 24, 2016, at the Grand Stafford Theater in downtown Bryan as part of the station’s ongoing Lone Star Music Series. Local favorites Ben Morris and the Great American Boxcar Chorus (http://www.boxcarchorus.com) will open the show. Beginning June 1, tickets will be available for purchase at http://grandstaffordtheater.com. General admission (standing room only) tickets are available for $15, and reserved seating tickets are available for $25.
Walt Wilkins (http://waltwilkins.com) is well known to many KEOS listeners. Wilkins brings a real passion to his music, and has described his life as a songwriter and performer: “I have had a fair share of songs recorded by other folks, which was my dream all along, and I have played shows with heroes & real poets & the deepest of cats. But I live for the gig tonight, and tomorrow.” For the Lone Star Music Series concert, he’ll be joined by his wife Tina Mitchell Wilkins (http://www.tinamitchellwilkins.com), who has lived and worked in Los Angeles and Nashville, but is now proud to call Texas home.
KEOS kicked off the Lone Star Music Series last year with a concert by Sam Baker, Carrie Elkins, and Chip Dolan. The Lone Star Music Series promotes independent Texas music by featuring artists with deep Texas roots. In addition to providing our community with great concerts, the series also strives to educate the general public about Texas-based musicians, singers, and songwriters. KEOS is proud to partner with the Grand Stafford Theater in downtown Bryan again this year. The Lone Star Music Series is made possible in part through Hotel Tax Revenue funded from the City of College Station and the City of Bryan through the Arts Council of Brazos Valley.
Join us on June 24 as we celebrate Texas music and all-volunteer, community radio!
