The 2009 Kerrville Wine & Music Festival is coming up Labor Day weekend, September 4 – 6. This annual celebration of performing songwriters and Texas wines will be held at Quiet Valley Ranch, 9 miles south of the Texas Hill Country resort community of Kerrville on Texas Hwy 16.
Not a typical “wine tasting” event, this 3-day festival will feature 6-hour evening concerts and 2-hour afternoon concerts with over two-dozen singer-songwriters. 2-hour wine seminars are held on Saturday and Sunday.
We are excited about this year’s musical line-up and feel that it covers just about everyone’s musical tastes. We’ve got some alt-country with Austin’s Stonehoney, Tex-Mex R&R with San Antonio’s Los Texmaniacs, Americana harmonies with Austin’s Ginn Sisters and funk-jam music from Eclectica. We are also thrilled about the return of some of our Kerrville favorites like Don Conoscenti, Thad Beckman, Karen Abrahams, Michael McNevin and Bob Livingston. (more…)
