Beatles Tribute: Me & My Monkey
The most popular Beatles Tribute Band in Texas... Me & My Monkey... will return to the Songbird on Aug 13th. Though this is one of the most popular festival bands of all times, why see them in the outdoor heat when you can see them in the air-conditioned comfort of the most intimate listening room in Texas! George Jara, leader of the band, calls the Songbird as one of his all-time favorite places to play.
Albert & Gage
Austin, Texas duo Albert and Gage (Christine Albert and Chris Gage) have a personal and musical chemistry that radiates from the stage. The joy they experience making music together is evident as they travel through their musical roots, moving from country and folk to blues and French chansons. The integrity of their musicianship and the rare blend of their voices create a unique and cohesive sound as Gage effortlessly switches from guitar to piano and accordion throughout their set to follow the mood of the music.
Christine Albert has been described as a “wondrous singer with a beautiful focus and unrestrained grace”, and had a prolific recording career as a solo artist before meeting Gage, including the acclaimed “Texafrance” series, a bilingual tribute to her European family. Chris Gage toured with Red Willow Band, Roy Clark and Jimmie Dale Gilmore and is currently playing guitar with Jerry Jeff Walker.
Since teaming up in 1996 they have released six albums on their own MoonHouse Records label and built the successful MoonHouse Studio, where Gage maintains a full schedule as an in demand producer and musician.
Chris McGuire - Classical Guitar - Sept 10th
American guitarist Christopher McGuire commands the many expressive qualities of the guitar with what one critic called "unselfconscious intensity." His engaging performance style invites people of all ages to feel they are taking part, not just taking a seat. Audiences and critics on five continents fulfill the prediction byAndrés Segovia that "…he will be appreciated and applauded everywhere." In his 1981 letter of recommendation, Segovia also said he is “…an artist, sensitive, with perfect technique.” His direct influences are as varied as they come, ranging from private lessons with Maestro Segovia to jam sessions with Stevie Ray Vaughn.* Has preformed with some of the great musicians of our time, including Charlie Byrd, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, Bucky Pizzarelli, Howard Alden, Roland Dyens, Carlos Bonell, Karin Schaupp, Robert Guthrie, Van Cliburn Gold Medalist José Feghali and violinist Swang Lin. In October of 2005 Chris shared the stage with the legendary Van Cliburn in a tribute concert for Fort Worth philanthropist Roz Rosenthal. He is currently Artistic Director of the Fort Worth Classic Guitar Society (FWCGS) and the Allegro Guitar Society of Dallas (AGSD)
