Guide to Dripping Springs - - Legends of Texas Music Festival boasts music great -

The Lone Star State has plenty to brag about when it comes to mu­sic, and the an­nual Leg­ends of Texas Mu­sic Fes­ti­val fea­tures some of the best.

Held in May to ben­e­fit the civil war era “Dr. Pound Pi­o­neer Farm­stead” his­tor­i­cal mu­seum in Drip­ping Springs, the event has fea­tured such greats as Johnny Gim­ble, Ray Ben­son and Asleep at the Wheel and Mel Til­lis.

The 2006 fes­ti­val is sched­uled for May 6 at the Nutty Brown Cafe Am­phithe­ater on High­way 290 be­tween Drip­ping Springs and Austin.

Texas mu­sic su­per­star, Kevin Fowler, a true pro­fes­sional en­ter­tainer whose pop­u­lar with all age groups, will head­line the show. Also fea­tured are Texas mu­sic greats Billy Joe Shaver, Bobby Flores, Doug More­land and Al­lie Danielle. A young Drip­ping Springs group, Moon­shine, will open the fes­ti­val at noon and mu­sic will con­tinue un­til 10:30 p.m.

A spe­cial trib­ute each year cel­e­brates a home-grown phe­nom­e­non – a unique blend of coun­try and jazz known as “Texas Swing.”

Bobby Flores will present the “Texas Swing” por­tion of the pro­gram this year, and the fes­ti­val an­nual rec­og­nizes a Texas mu­sic artist for his or her spe­cial con­tri­bu­tions to Texas mu­sic. Past re­cip­i­ents are Johnny Gim­ble and Ray Ben­son – the fes­ti­val will honor Billy Joe Shaver.

In ad­di­tion to star-stud­ded mu­sic, the Leg­ends of Texas Mu­sic Fes­ti­val fea­tures a Mar­ket­place, a huge silent auc­tion, great food and drink and more.
