Texas Heritage Music Day at Schreiner Sept. 24

KERRVILLE, Texas—The Texas Heritage Music Foundation is proud to announce that the 23rd annual Texas Heritage Music Day (formerly the Texas Heritage Living History Day) will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, Sept. 24, at the Robbins-Lewis Pavilion on Schreiner University campus in Kerrville. The event is billed as “Another Way of Learning Using Stories and Songs.” The Texas Folklore Society and THMF will co-host a panel on the songs of Texas from 4-6 p.m. in the historic Union Church on the festival grounds. All events are free and open to the public.

Texas Heritage Music Day is part of the new Texas Song Series, which will kick off Aug. 5-7 with a songwriter’s festival in Con-Can and Sept. 1 at the Texas Music Coffeehouse on the Schreiner campus. All three events feature Adam Carroll and Owen Temple.

For Texas Heritage Music Day, more than 50 performers and presenters will be spread throughout the park to entertain and educate. Presentations will include Aztec dancing, chuck wagons, Native American exhibits and stories, Texas singers and songwriters and more. Central to the event will be the annual noon tribute to former Kerrville resident and “Father of Country Music” Jimmie Rodgers. Food and drinks will be available for sale at the event. There will be a take-home educator’s packet available to all teachers.
