JD Wellfed & Guests: Jarrod Birmingham and Jeremy Halliburton
January 11, 2016@ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Tickets $10.00 or $8 for seniors
Popular South Central Texas singer and songwriter JD Wellfed of Sweet Home will lead the fifth in a series of musical evenings Monday night at the Hallet Oak Gallery. Featured guests will be Jarrod Birmingham and Jeremy Halliburton. Jarrod Birmingham has been compared to Hank Williams as a country traditionalist. Birmingham believes “…country music should reflect the common people. That’s pretty much my mission statement, to stay grounded in the knowledge that I‘m a blue collar individual, a country boy. There are a lot of people out there like me, and I’d like to be their voice.”
Joining in the camaraderie with Wellfed and Birmingham will be Jeremy Halliburton. With a background in radio, Halliburton has been nominated for Record of the Year and DJ of the Year at the My Texas Music Awards. Influenced by bluegrass, rock, and country, he has appeared with Reckless Kelly, Charlie Robison, Cody Canada, Roger Creager, Kevin Fowler, Jarrod Birmingham, Larry Joe Taylor, Matt King, Kevin Welch, George Devore, Honeybrowne, Houston Marchman, Mark Jungers, and many others…He’s also a notorious name dropper.
JD Wellfed began writing poems in junior high and songs in his early twenties. “Anything and everything” inspires his music, which draws on folk, bluegrass, and a plethora of other influences. JD founded the Sweet Home Music Fest, which gave artists a platform for original music while raising funds for several community causes.
Join in the relaxed atmosphere every second Monday of the month at the Gallery. The performers interact with the audience, entertaining questions and sharing insight into their music. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Bring your own drinks. Ice and cups provided. Checks and cash accepted for $10 door fee.
