Schreiner University and Texas Heritage Music Foundation announce Spring 2008 Coffeehouse schedule  

KERRVILLE, Texas – Texas Heritage Music Foundation and Schreiner University’s Center for Innovative Learning announce the spring 2008 Texas Music Coffeehouse series schedule. Coffeehouse events take place from 7-9 p.m. in the Lion’s Den of the Schreiner Cailloux Campus Activity Center. Open mike is at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

In honor of the 33rd anniversary of Black History Month and the 83rd anniversary of Black History Week, artists LZ Love and Lightning Red will be featured at the first spring Coffeehouse on February 7. Singer songwriter Love began her career as a backup vocalist, working with such notables as Luther Vandross, James Brown and George Benson. Red is a master of both acoustic and slide guitar and exhibits “matchless acoustic style,” according to the Austin Chronicle. Popular Kerrville performer Clifton Fifer will be a special guest. Fifer is known for his programs about black cowboys, Buffalo Soldiers and Native Americans. Nell M. Nash will be performing representing the Doyle Community Center.

Women’s History Month will be celebrated on March 12 with a return performance by Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines. Based in San Marcos, Hendrix is a true Texas singer songwriter whose wry wordplay and appealing vocals have been featured on Americana radio stations across the country. Multi-instrumentalist Maines is best known as a steel player, but is also a producer of many great Texas recordings, including “Home” by the Dixie Chicks, which won him a Grammy for Best Country Album in 2003.

The final Coffeehouse of the spring will feature Thom “The World” Poet on April 2. The Austin-based poet is a founder of the Austin International Poetry Festival, and has toured the world with his poetry and music, most notably on the Four Continents Slam Tour. He believes that “access to poetry can and should be universal and a positive experience for all who choose it.”

All Texas Music Coffeehouse events are free and open to the public. Sponsors for the spring 2008 Coffeehouse series are Texas Heritage Music Foundation, Center for Innovative Learning, Schreiner Student Activities, Chi Phi Fraternity, The Muse, Sigma Tau Delta and Revolution FM 94.3 KRVL.
