Looking For A Little Afternoon Delight   Leave a comment

Experts may know why
dragonflies land where they choose
often landing then away they fly
only to come back for a little snooze.

choosing a branch on which to hand tight
hoping he will catch her eye
looking for a little afternoon delight.

People who love live music in a “house concert” format in the greater Houston area are aware of the work Mary and Kenneth Harris have done for the last 20 years. When it comes to house concerts it’s difficult to beat the live events they conduct in the piney woods of east Texas.

The headliner for this fall’s event was Guthrie Kennard with Julie Bonk. 

Ken and Mary first heard Julie at Camp Stupid at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 2012.

At one point in the evening, Julie did a solo singing one of her songs, “Just Through Loving You.”

Fall Fest 2013 is fast approaching. We are looking forward to seeing you here on Oct 26, 2013.

This year for the first time we will have three acts. Henry Old School Jones will open for Guthrie Kennard and Julie Bonk.
After Guthrie
, Marina Rocks will play.  In 1993 for my birthday I wanted some live blues music here at our house
The Blues Broad Kathleen aka The Blues Broad (she had a blues program on KPFT) sent me to Big Roger Collins.
He played here and the Blues Project was born  and we have been presenting live music here ever since.
20 years later we are doing a special night for my 70th birthday.
 

As usual we will BBQ  some meats and will have ice tea ,water  and coffee.
Bring a  side dish you like to show off to share, a lawn chair, your cooler with your favorite beverage and $10 (donation  100% for the music ).
We plan on serving food around 6:30 Henry Jones with his old school blues will play  after we eat.
We received rave reviews the last time he was here so we are  bringing  him back .

The feature act will be Guthrie Kennard with his raspy voice Americana, bluesy, roots music.
Accompanying Guthrie will be Julie Bonk on key board . We caught Guthrie’s  show at the Dosie Doe Music cafe
and were so impressed that we asked him to play here at the project . We first heard Julie at Camp Stupid at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 2012 .
She was playing keyboards in a song circle, Stephanie was singing with her, Marina was also there and they were wowing everyone.

To close the night out Marina  will do an intimate set and jam. She opened here last year and was an instant hit with everyone rocking the house.
Musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments to jam afterwards.
 

We are attaching a you tube video Guthrie and Julie did. Enjoy. It’s gonna be a bluesy, jazzy, rockin’ night at the Blues Project….
