Blues night next for Roots concert stage

Putting blues music in the spotlight Saturday, July 27, will be the third installment in the 2013 Roots Music Series at Pioneer Museum, 325 West Main Street.

Starting at 6:30 p.m. will be Bobby Mack, followed at 7:30 p.m. by Omar and the Howlers and then a 9:10 p.m. startup of W.C. Clark at the museum’s outdoor stage.

Music fans are invited to bring their lawn chairs. Access is through a side entrance off South Milam Street. The gate opens at 5 p.m. and cost is $12 per adult. Children under 18 years of age are admitted free. Net proceeds support the mission of the Gillespie County Historical Society.

Drinks and food are sold on the grounds. No outside coolers, beverages or bottles are allowed.

Bobby Mack, who will take the stage first, got his start at legendary Austin music venues, including the Armadillo World Headquarters, Soap Creek Saloon, The One Knight and the Split Rail.

He was a house regular at the Austin landmark, Antone’s Home of the Blues, leading the stage every Wednesday night through the mid 1980s.
