The Texas Troubadours’ tour celebrates the great songwriting tradition of The Lone Star State. This magical evening features Ruthie Foster, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Carrie Rodriguez — Texas-based artists known worldwide for their powerful songs and distinctive voices. Ruthie’s had three Grammy-nominated albums and she’s also won numerous Austin and blues music awards. Texas Panhandle native Jimmie Dale teamed with Joe Ely and Butch Hancock to found the legendary band The Flatlanders back in 1972. He’s also a multiple Grammy nominee and has twice been named Country Artist of the Year by Rolling Stone. Carrie, the daughter of Texan singer-songwriter David Rodriguez, released her latest recording, Lola, last winter. The album — inspired by the 1940s-era recordings of Carrie’s great aunt, Chicano singing sensation Eva Garza — was named one of NPR’s top releases of 2016. This trio of renowned artists gathers together on the same stage for the first time, swapping songs and collaborating on each other’s greatest material.

This event is part of the Vermont Arts Council’s Vermont Arts 2018, a year-long celebration highlighting the stunning array of arts events — concerts, festivals, exhibits, and openings — that take place all across the state.
