Texas Heritage Music Foundation Presents Texas Living History Day 2007

KERRVILLE, Texas — Texas Heritage Music Foundation will present Texas Living History Day 2007, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28 on the Schreiner University campus.

Texas Heritage Living History Day

 

Billed as “Another Way of Learning Using Stories and Songs,” the 2007 event offers an up-close, hands-on experience. It will showcase over 60 performers and demonstrators, including Native American storytellers and dancers, cowboy poets, humorists and storytellers, Texas singer/songwriters, chuck wagons, teepees and more. This community event also includes a teaching packet for interested educators (http://www.texasheritagemusic.org/). There will be a noon tribute to father of country music Jimmie Rodgers, which will take place at the Robbins-Lewis Pavilion. Living History Day 2007 lasts from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

From 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, the Texas Folklore Society will offer an afternoon seminar and round-table discussion on many aspects of Texas heritage. Both these events are free and open to the public.

Capping off the day’s events is a concert by guest artist Duke Davis, who will pay tribute to the cowboy through his unique home-on-the-range experience. The public is invited to enjoy his performance and a plate of supper—both served up fresh with a hearty helping of stories and songs. The concert includes the cost of the meal.
