The Central Texas Hill Country has all kinds of live and recorded music to be enjoyed by all.  Scroll down to see music performers, venues, festivals, music resources, and more.  The numbers at the end of some listings are the month/year that the listing was added or updated.  Please note that I do not include Austin and San Antonio in the free listings for the Hill Country Scene.

Hill Country Performers
(Bands, Singers, Songwriters, & Musicians)

Glenn Allan & Kim Mackenzie - Hotter than a jalapeño, cooler than the other side of the pillow, this multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter duo harmonizes like few artists can.  Their diverse backgrounds and love of similar musical styles bring elements of Americana, folk, country, blues, honky-tonk, and Tex-Mex sounds into concert, with a decidedly Texas flavor.  Hunter (between San Marcos and New Braunfels).

April Hall Band - Undeniably gifted singer, April Hall, fittingly works her songwriting into her blend of country, blues, and other Americana styles.  Her passionate soulful vocals set the stage whether it’s a solo acoustic or a full band performance.  Leander.
Charley Austin - Broad styles of performing traditional country, western swing, contemporary country, and even pop tunes make him one of the most versatile and diverse, up and coming young artists with a strong desire to succeed.  Boerne.

Auston Arellano - Folk rock and eclectic soft rock music, fused with punk.  Lyrics are generally reminiscent of ballads and softer songs, however, Auston has an uncanny ability to write songs with a catchy chorus while at the same time having meaningful lyrics.  His songs run the gamut from soft acoustic ballads to edgy punk jams, and everything in between.  Seguin.
Ben Beckendorf Band - Has been a staple in the Texas Hill Country music scene for over 20 years.  The mix of tradtional blues with the Tex-Mex styles popularized by ZZ Top and Stevie Ray Vaughn create a sound unique to the Texas Hill Country.  Fredericksburg.

Mike Blakely - A rare talent, a prolific writer, and an established veteran of the American entertainment industry in print, over the airwaves, and at his live performances.  Marble Falls.

Stephanie Briggs - Stephanie's music has been referred to as "poetry set to music."  She writes hard with an emphasis on rhythm, slapping her guitar and chucking strings.  With her band backing her with hip-hop beats and funk grooves, it's a new take on folk rock, done her way.  New Braunfels.

McKay Brothers - Texas music from the hills of Bandera County, influences include Guy Clark, Terry Allen, Robert Earl Keen, and Townes Van Zandt.  Pipe Creek (east of Bandera).

English Brothers - Brothers Greg, Wes, Ray, and Gerald English, all born and raised in Texas, have been performing together in various combinations since the mid 1970s, bringing together finely-tuned vocal harmonies that only family members can achieve.  Canyon Lake.

Bobby Flores - This Grammy Award winner performs both solo and with his 6-piece band featuring a trio of fiddles.  He brings to you the best in traditional country and western swing music.  Bobby is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, arranger, producer, composer, and first call session musician.  Blanco.  5/12
Russ Garvey - Hillbilly Blues is probably the best way to discribe the unique style of the popular Texas-based singer / songwriter.  After climbing to the #5 position on the European Blues & Rockabilly charts with the song "Long Gone Blues," fans began calling his mixture of folk, blues, and rockabilly music FOLKABILLY.  Russ Garvey is currently touring Texas and the world in support of the AA&P Records - Austin, TX release of the CD Long Gone Blues.
