On Sunday, December 17th, Foster Music & Arts is proud to present the ultimate rockin' honky tonk holiday concert with telecaster master Bill Kirchen. Currently residing in Austin, TX , Bill Kirchen, who most will remember as the guitar player for country rock legends Commander Cody & The Lost Planet Airmen, will bring his Texas trio to the Old School Theater and this show is guaranteed to be too much fun.
Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen
is one of the fortunate few who can step on any stage, play those trademark licks which drove the seminal Commander Cody classic Hot Rod Lincoln into the Top Ten nationwide, and elicit instant recognition. Named a “Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, he celebrates a musical tradition that embraces rock ‘n’ roll, blues and bluegrass, Texas Western swing and California honky-tonk. Nick Lowe describes Bill as
“... a devastating culmination of the elegant and funky...a really sensational musician, with enormous depth.
In addition to his years with Commander Cody, Kirchen has released 11 solo album's including a collection of Holiday songs called Bill Kirchen's Honky Tonk Holiday. He'll be playing all the songs from there and more at this special Holiday concert.
“I think he's great ... You should hear him on the new [Nick Lowe] album.” Johnny Cash
“Bill Kirchen rules. It's just that simple" Austin American Statesman:
