John Arthur Martinez is back with his widely acclaimed and Award winning musical style. In 2012 he received the Academy of Texas Music’s nomination for Song of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. An Austin Cajun treat, that’s new to this year’s festival, is Charles Thibodeaux and the Austin Cajun Aces, including Erik Hokkanen. Their traditional Cajun French Music Style is refreshing and keeps everybody’s toes tapping!! The Almost Patsy Cline Band from Bandera is very popular “dance band” in San Antonio as well as across the Hill Country and Texas!! Their repertoire ranges from Bob Wills’ favorites to Patsy Cline’s hits. Better bring your dancing shoes when their playing!!
