Terlingua Music Bash 2015

The “Barlow Fest” – Terlingua Music Bash, 2015, was the 21st (?) annual celebration of Texas Americana Music held here.

There was music everywhere: The Boathouse, The Starlight Theatre, on the porch, in the desert at Gareth Park, at La Kiva…

I’ve known Al for over 20 years… at one point I commented, “back in the day when I’d go to open mics, it seemed like everybody was my age. Now, all these years later, when I go to open mics it seems like everybody’s my age.

Terlingua has pretty much recovered from the onslaught of pickers- the Barlow Fest is the first event of our season, to be quickly followed by two chili cook-offs, the “Ride for Trails” biking convention, and, basically, the Fall tourist season.

This time of year, and spring, are when the Big Bend is at its finest.

We’ve got a year to recover before we do it again.

  1. I was visited on October 5-7. Not log enough. Enjoyed Starlight and Boathouse. Saw Moses, ah Clem and Crystal , and Jack Knight. I can’t wait to come back. I live in Delaware so I am not sure when except that I know I will be back. What a vibrant and fantastic place. Please don’t change.
