Carolyn Wonderland’s live album debut is here! Even with the success of studio albums in 2008 (Miss Understood) and again in 2011 (Peace Meal), those who have been fortunate enough to witness, Carolyn shines brightest in live performance, winning legions of fans with her take-no-prisoners approach to the stage. So it made perfect sense to capture that energy of her trio in a full-length album, and even better, to do it in a trio of Texas’ most famous packed houses, Antone’s in Austin, Kessler Theatre in Dallas and Last Concert Café in Houston.

“The reigning queen of Austin blues, Carolyn Wonderland sparks fire on guitar and soulful fury in the force of her vocal grit. Since 2011’s Peace Meal, reveling in Wonderland’s rough and raw Janis Joplin-esque howl and burn-down blues, she’s lent her impeccable riffs to a number of albums, including the LP from the Stooges’ James Williamson, Re-licked.” – Austin Chronicle

 

The result is Live Texas Trio and in addition to Carolyn, her bandmates Cole El-Saleh on keys and bass and Rob Hooper on drums, she invited guests Guy Forsyth and Shelley King on several tracks. Opening with a blistering take on Leon Russell’s “Palace Of The King,” the collection mixes a combination of tasteful covers (Doug Sahm, Blind Willie Johnson, Larry Campbell) with new originals (including one co-write with Ruthie Foster), and live versions of favorites from prior studio albums (“Walk On”, “Only God Knows When”).…

Great music, great friends, big LOVE for Slim Richey! We play 8:30 this Saturday! Take the trek to Terlingua!! ...

What: Slim Fest oNe When: Thursday, February 11 – Sunday, February 14 Where: The Boathouse, Terlingua, Texas Who: Carolyn Wonderland, Butch Hancock & Rory Hancock, The Ghosts Along the Brazos, The Jitterbug Vipers, Alan Munde and more. ONLY $40 FOR THE WHOLE WEEKEND OF MUSIC!!!! ($75 if you include camping) Slim Richey was often referred to as the most dangerous guitar player in Texas and some would say the world. Terlingua, Texas was his home-away-from-home. February 11, 2016 would have been his 78th birthday and a party is planned to beat all parties. The festival kicks off on Thursday, February 11 with an Open Mic and world-class musicians (in addition to many of the festival’s headliners) will be a part of it. The Boathouse Restaurant & Bar and grounds will be exclusive to Slim Fest and, again, advance tickets are highly encouraged. Special camping rates are included in the price of advance tickets. Whether you're camping or not, bringing firewood would be appreciated. While we can't accommodate individual campfires in the campgrounds surrounding the Boathouse we are going to have a centralized campfire like any great festival! Terlingua is located in the Big Bend of Texas and, if you’ve never been, you’ll understand why Slim and his wife Francie made it their Winter playground. The music is in the evenings and you’ll have the daytime to explore the area if you choose not to join in the jams that will be taking place in the campground. The unofficial jams at The Kerrville Folk Festival, Old Settlers, the Rice Festival and more were often Slim’s favorite part of any festival he attended. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the life of Slim Richey in the place he loved so much. It will be a weekend you’ll never forget! Here’s the schedule: Thursday: Open Mic#1 (5-10 pm) and Birthday Celebration Friday: 6:00 - Slim's friend and Terlingua resident, Uh Clem 7:15 - Rory and Butch Hancock 9:15 - The Jitterbug Vipers Saturday: 5:30 - Slim's Terlingua buddy, JoBuck Johnson 6:45 - Alan Munde & Friends 8:30 - Carolyn Wonderland 10:30 - Ghosts Along the Brazos (yes, they're getting back together for the festival!)
