Another source for Terlingua, Texas Americana music.
Local bass player and all around good guy, Nick Cooper, is hosting a “Not Really Bluegrass” jam on Saturdays, around 5:00. It started out as a bluegrass jam, but, it turns out, hardly anybody down here can actually play bluegrass.
So, it’s morphed into a singer/songwriter kinda thing – everybody stands or sits in a circle – everybody sings and plays along. Kinda like a ghost-town choir, and I mean that in a good way.
The current location is the boatyard, but it’s going to be floating to Bobby’s Blues and BBQ soon.
LaRoja and I attended last night, and had a blast.
There are a lot of musical opportunities in the Big Bend, but there’s nothing quite like this anywhere else. Totally acoustic. Great vibe.
