The Texas Troubadours tour celebrates the great songwriting tradition of The Lone Star State, and features Ruthie Foster, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Carrie Rodriguez - three Texas-based artists who are known around the globe for their excellent songs and their distinctive voices. The Texas Troubadours perform at The Kent Stage on Sunday, March 4.
Each one is a great, critically acclaimed performer in their own right, and the Texas Troubadours tour showcases all of them together on stage for the first time, swapping songs and collaborating on each other's material. This world-premiere presentation will be a rare treat for fans of all three singers, for fans of Texas music and for fans of great songwriting.
Foster's last three albums have been Grammy-nominated, and she has won numerous Austin Music Awards and Blues Music Awards. Gilmour is a native of the Texas Panhandle and, along with Joe Ely and Butch Hancock, founded the legendary band The Flatlanders back in 1972. He has also been nominated for multiple Grammy Awards, and Rolling Stone magazine has twice named him Country Artist of the Year. Rodriguez, the daughter of Texan singer-songwriter David Rodriguez, released her critically acclaimed album Lola last year. Named one of NPR's top 30 releases of 2016, the album is inspired by the 1940s-era recording of Carrie's great aunt, Chicana singing sensation Eva Garza.
