Texas Music Coffeehouse Series continues October 7

The McKay Brothers and Brennen Leigh will be the featured performers Wednesday, Oct. 7 for the Texas Music Coffeehouse Series at Schreiner University. The program is a tribute to Texas music month and will be from 7-9 p.m. at the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center Lion’s Den on the Schreiner campus.

Of the McKay Brothers, the New York Times said, “Their authenticity is as welcome as a drive down a lonely road in a dusty pickup.” The McKay Brothers, fifth generation Texans, grew up in the hills of Bandera County and music became an inescapable part of their early lives.

In a few short years, Austin-based performer Leigh—alongside brother Seth Hulbert—has firmly established herself as one of the Lone Star State's premiere singers and songwriters.

November 4 is the last coffeehouse of the fall semester and will feature Patricia Vonne.

The Texas Music Coffeehouse Series is co-sponsored by Schreiner University, the Texas Heritage Music Foundation, the Center for Innovative Learning and the Student Activities Board. Held once a month the first three months in each semester, the event provides a space for writers, musicians and artists to showcase their work at an open mike.

It is free and open to the public.

For more information, please contact Dr. Kathleen Hudson, director of Texas Heritage Music Foundation and professor of English at Schreiner, or 830-792-7409.
