I’ll be playing guitar and piano as Kate’s accompanist at this concert. Love her songs and we always have a great time playing together. I’ll also be doing about three of my own songs as well. Details below:
About the Musicians:
Kate Howard -
Tony Scalzo (Fastball, Wrenfro) says of Kate Howard, “Her lyrics take you to a place no other songwriter will.” Singer songwriter Elsa Cross calls her music “witty, authentic and heartfelt”. Celebrated musician Shane Cooley says Kate has “the wittiest lyrics in Austin”.
Kate wrote her first song when she was 50. At age 55, she's written over 100 tunes; plays gigs fairly often; and is preparing to release her debut album. A concert album, she recorded "The Best Medicine" with the band of her dreams: Ben Jones (of Beat Root Revival), Jeff Plankenhorn, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Noelle Hampton, and Steve Schwelling.
