Last week we saw more venues back open and by today there’s only a few that have remained closed. It’s so refreshing to see live music returning to our city where it belongs. I must admit, some of the live streaming shows were really well done. Willie Nelson did a few streaming shows and they were professionally done. Naturally, since it was Willie, he had the best guests, like Paul Simon, James Taylor, Norah Jones and Lyle Lovett, just to name a few.
Of the regular streaming shows I watched, there were four that really stand out as excellent displays of just how talented our Texas songwriters are. The Monday night shows from the Sequestered Songwriters were very well done. Courtney Patton put these together each week and did an amazing job. This past Monday they did a tribute to Bruce Springsteen.
