Texas Music Coffeehouse Series Wednesday, March 1 at Schreiner University to Celebrate Women’s History Month

Texas Music Coffeehouse Series at Schreiner University will celebrate Women’s History Month Wednesday, March 1 at 7 p.m. in the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center Corner Pocket.

Carolyn WonderlandThe night will feature performances by Carolyn Wonderland, El Saleh and the Barnett Chapel Choir. The evening will begin with open mike at 7 p.m.  It is free and open to the public.

Wonderland is a triple threat with her diverse songwriting, soulful vocals, and guitar goddess status she has a pedigree in the music business that’s hard to match. A bit of a renegade, she likes to incorporate elements of Blues, Country, Swing, Zydeco, Surf, Gospel, Soul, and some nights, maybe even a Cumbia into the musical mix. Recent years have seen her stretching out musically working some expert whistling and scat singing into her shows.

In 1981, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution establishing National Women's History Week. The week was chosen to coincide with International Women's Day, March 8. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month.

Texas Music Coffeehouse is sponsored by Schreiner University Student Activities, Schreiner University Center for Innovative Learning, Best Buddies, Texas Music History Foundation, and KFAN Radio “Texas Rebel Radio” 107.9 and 103.1.

For more information contact Dr. Kathleen Hudson, professor of English, at Schreiner University at (830) 792-7409 or khudson@schreiner.edu.
