'Swinging on the Square' - PCAA to host Marshall Ford Band Sunday

Texas Western swing will rule the airways in and around Marktplatz this Sunday evening, May 19, during the next Pedernales Creative Arts Alliance (PCAA) free, open-air concert.

Performing the second in PCAA’s “Concert in the Park” summer series will be The Marshall Ford Swing Band of Austin.

They will play from 6:30-8 p.m. under the Adelsverein Halle, the largest pavilion on the downtown square.

Listeners are invited to arrive early to claim some of the limited picnic table seating in the pavilion or to bring their own chairs or blankets and find a spot on the grassy area nearby.

Music lovers planning to attend are also urged to not only pack picnic-type refreshments and make an evening excursion out of the event, but to also take their dancing shoes since many couples enjoy twirling around the dance floor as the sun sets.

The Marshall Ford Swing Band was founded by songwriter/guitarist Greg Harkins and the balance of the quartet is comprised of keyboardist/vocalist (and granddaugther of legendary fiddler Johnny Gimble),  Emily Gimble, bassist Kristopher Wade and drummer James Gwyn.
