Four Bitchin Babes. Saw them 2 years in a row at the annual Kerrville (TX) Folk Festival, (I wouldn’t call them or most of the artists I saw there folk) and later in Springfield IL. They have absolutely beautiful ballads like “What Would I Do Today (If I Was Brave)”, and zany crazy songs like the Viagra song and the “Nervous Wreck of the Edna Fitzgerald”.
The Gipsy Kings from the South of France. They sing in Spanish but my Mexican friend could barely understand them when we saw them. Five or six guys playing acoustic. I don’t know what they’re singing, but it sounds delicious.
Anne McCue from Australia. Saw her tour with Heart. She is a guitar virtuoso. Lyrics suggest some depression history, but still great stuff. Favorite is “Stupid”.
Catherine Denise, singer and Blues guitarist from Austin.
Reckless Kelly, popular TX band.
