Bob Livingston

This is your chance to hear the man who gave “Cowboys and Indians” a new meaning.  Bob Livingston has been a Music Ambassador for the U.S. State Department since 1987, and as such he has taken his music to all corners of the globe.  In India, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East he has demonstrated again and again the unique power that music has to build bridges between peoples of the world.  With his multi-cultural band from Texas and India called, appropriately, Cowboys and Indians, he has played in schools and theatres all over Texas.  He has also  played with such musical greats as Jerry Jeff Walker, Ray Wiley Hubbard and Michael Martin Murphey.  Among those of us old enough to remember, he is perhaps best known for his time with Jerry Jeff in the Lost Gonzo Band.

 

Bob’s CD recordings have been highly acclaimed.  His 2004 CD, Mahatma Ghandi and Sitting Bull,  was named to the Austin-American Statesman’s Top 10 List.  His 2011 CD, Gypsy Alibi, co-produced by Lloyd Maines, won “Album of the Year” at the Texas Music Awards.  He is completing a new CD on Howlin’ Dog Records that is due for release this year.  In collaboration with playwright/songwriter Bobby Bridger, Bob Livingston is turning the “Cowboys and Indians” concept into a full-fledged musical play, with the first performances scheduled for Summer, 2017.  This year he was inducted into the Texas Music Legends Hall of Fame 2016 by the Austin Songwriter’s Association.  From distant highways in the mystic east to rutted back roads in his hometown of Lubbock, Bob’s songs and stories are an experience not to be missed.  Come out and join us Saturday, October 8 for a memorable evening of music from Texas and beyond.

 

Second Saturday Concert is presented by the Houston Folklore and Music Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of folklore and acoustic music. Refreshments are available.  Tickets are sold at the door - adults $15, senior citizens (65) $11, and children under 12 free with adults.  Concerts are held the second Saturdays of each month in the West University Community Center at 6104 Auden (intersection of Auden. and Rice Blvd.)  Phone Paul Cooper at 713-204-1207 (cell)  for more concert information.
