Familiar, yet far-out, Indie folk music Sisters Eva, Hannah, Sarah and Liza Holbrook were born in a five-year span and raised in a bohemian, art-loving family in Fort Collins, Colo. Each found an instrument to master early on, studying classical music while composing and arranging unique instrumentations for  violin, mandolin, piano and drums. They gained performing experience working with their songwriter father and soon had festival promoters and media figures championing their fresh, intricately drawn sound. Shel's music is many things,…

Levitt Pavilion – Arlington, TX, 100 W. Abram St.
Arlington, TX 76010 United States
  • Presented by

A modern take on Texas folk When describing Jamie Lin Wilson's voice, two aspects come to mind: a honeyed tenor twang perfect for modern folk music and a poignant, poetic, down-to-earth point of view that she brings to her songwriting. A talented artist with restless creativity, Jamie broke into the Texas country/folk scene as one of the co-lead vocalists of the Gougers before the band gradually gave way to not only Jamie’s solo work, but also higher profile musical adventures…

A hard-scrabble package of folk, rock and bluegrass Playing upwards of 200 dates a year, giving heartfelt, unrestrained performances and winning over a loyal audience show by show, it takes a lot to stop this band from El Paso, home of the “dirty river” known as the Rio Grande.
