Viva Terlingua Music Festival 2015 – Sunday

Sunday evening I didn’t know what to expect. How many people would stay in town?

Things were slower, as people gathered up their guitars and souvenirs and heading back to be at work or school on Monday.

This year, Sunday turned into a fun jam session at the Boathouse that was surprisingly crowded. I think this needs to be a tradition.

Here are some of the pics.

I’m still recovering from the festival, gathering up PA systems and equipment, and restoring my office/recording studio to its previous level of chaos. I’ll have time to reflect on the festival, gather information and ideas from the venues and sound guys, talk to the musicians and attendees soon.

This year’s festival was a huge improvement over last year’s, but there’s lots of room for improvement. If you’ve got an idea about how to make it better, leave a comment here.

Betsy and I posted this on Facebook. I want to post it here, too. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for everybody who helped make Viva Terlingua Music Festival such a success.

  1. Lajitas Resort decided not participate this year??? I guess things have changed there??? No shows at Starlight– Great event for the community and all of Texas. Nice work. Nice music. Much enjoyed.
