The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents, welcomes American country music artists Elizabeth Cook and Dale Watson.
Elizabeth Cook, country singer/songwriter, made her Grand Ole Opry debut in March 2000 and she’s appeared repeatedly since then; a remarkable achievement since she was an indie artist with no radio airplay at the time. But her clear, beautiful voice and strong songwriting ability generated excitement. Cook’s writerly skills, along with her self-awareness, hip hard-country delivery, comedic gifts and ability to project magnetic personality, have made her a treasure of the Americana singer-songwriter scene, not to mention a fixture on the Grand Ole Opry, a beloved satellite radio host and a favorite David Letterman guest.
Dale Watson has built a worldwide legion of fans one gig at a time, from Texas honky-tonks to Tokyo performance halls and all points in between. With his new album, “Live At The Big T Roadhouse, Chicken S#!+ Bingo Sunday”, Watson brings a unique Texas tradition to the world. Live At The Big T is a perfect snapshot of Watson and his ace band, His Lonestars, live in concert at the peak of their performing prowess, all while hosting a Chicken S#!+ Bingo show at Dale’s own bar, the Big T Roadhouse in St. Hedwig, Texas. The ‘bingo” game involves a caged hen strutting across a plywood board divided into numbered squares while betting customers gather ’round the cage, hoping the bird will drop its mark on their chosen numeral. Along with cash prizes for the winners, there’s $2 Lonestar beer, all you can eat hot dogs and live music and dancing. If you’ve never seen Watson live, this album is the next best thing — an intimate how for an audience of mixed ages and backgrounds, all enjoying an afternoon of live honky-tonk and classic country music framed by Watson’s hilarious between-song banter.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
