Drew Kennedy to be Featured in Schreiner Coffeehouse Series Oct. 4

Drew Kennedy The Texas Music Coffeehouse Series at Schreiner University will present its second performance of the 2006-07 academic year on Wednesday, Oct. 4 with a featured performance by Drew Kennedy, sponsored by Sustain Records and the Schreiner University Center for Innovative Learning.

Kennedy is part of the Red Dirt songwriter movement in Texas, and prefers working in intimate venues such as the Coffeehouse at Schreiner. He comments “I like to give people a chance to hear the words. I'll never pass at the chance to sit in front of a room full of people with just my songs and my guitar.”

Kennedy, a Virginian turned Texan, churns out songs about life, loss and love with a powerful storyteller’s voice. Kennedy’s songs bring to mind masters like Steve Earle, Gram Parsons and Hank Williams. His album “Hillbilly Pilgrim” paints a broad musical picture of life in America spanning the legendary Mississippi riverboat era through the age of small-town America, from stories of bootleggers in West Virginia to cowboys and outlaws on the Texas frontier.  

The evening will begin with an open mike at 7 p.m., followed by Kennedy’s exciting performance. Texas Music Coffeehouses are held in the Corner Pocket Theater in the Cailloux Student Activities Center on Schreiner campus, and are free and open to the public.
