Groove with the Leg­ends of Texas Swing

Guide to Dripping Springs - - Front page -

The “Leg­ends of Texas” mu­sic fes­ti­val takes place an­nu­ally in May to help raise money to sup­port the Pound House.

In May of 2007, the fes­ti­val fea­tured mu­sic from Michael My­ers, Bran­don Rhy­der, Wade Bowen, Roger Crea­ger and Larry Gatlin. Other leg­endary mu­si­cians in­clud­ing Ray Ben­son from Asleep at the Wheel and Johnny Gim­ble who played with Bob Wills and the Texas Play­boys have been fea­tured at past fes­ti­vals.

Plan to come out for the day-long event in 2008. En­joy out­stand­ing mu­sic, choose from an ar­ray of Texas food, bid in the silent auc­tion — and much more.

Leg­ends of Texas Swing draws about 4,000 mu­sic lovers each year. The event is or­ga­nized each year by the Friends of the Pound House Foun­da­tion. Seat­ing is typ­i­cally lim­ited.

Spon­sor­ships of the fundraiser are al­ways wel­come and can be made by email­ing Darrin Creech at darrin.creech@well­sfargo.com. Busi­nesses that spon­sor the event can get im­pres­sive mileage out of group ad­ver­tis­ing.

Ray Ben­son and Johnny Gim­ble give ‘Leg­ends’ its swing.
