Tribute to Townes Van Zandt.
It’s our tribute to Texas show. Not, as Marty points out, douchey Dallas Texas, but more an awesome Austin kind of Texas. Townes Van Zandt, the heralded Texas folk-country songwriter, would have turned 68 next Wednesday. As such, an amazing lineup of artists will gather at the Tractor Tavern that night to commemorate with a “Love ME Some Townes Van Zandt” show.
Three of the performers – Lindsay Fuller, Jeff Fielder, and Ian Moore – join us in the basement this morning to pay early tribute. Growing up in Texas, Ian Moore attended his share of Townes shows.
And, wait, who is that woman in the mask? A special guest co-host joins us for today’s show.
