An exciting musical line-up for Clark Gardens 2014 Spring Festival March 29-30, has been announced, with Texas singer/songwriters performing on two stages.
Kicking off the festival Saturday, March 29 at 10:30 a.m. will be Theodore Henning and Dene Colwill. Henning, a Fort Worth based singer/songwriter, combines folk, country, blues and bluegrass. His latest album release "Texas Roadhouse Blues" (H & H Records) comes straight from his love of Texas with a clever collection of bluebonnet songs written by Henning, Jean Cathryn, and several other Texans. Dene Colwill, country music singer and guitarist, has been playing guitar since he was 8. He is self-taught and tries to make every song his own.
Headlining the two stages at 1 p.m. Saturday are The Southern Heritage Band and Colt Buckelew & The Crossroads. The Southern Heritage Band has been playing together more than 10 years and has been nominated for many awards. Nominations include "Entertainer of the Year," "Club Band of the Year," and "Female Artist of the Year" by the Terry Association. Having opened for The Eli Young Band, Randy Rogers Band, Eddie Raven, and Terry Fader (America's Got Talent Winner) The Southern Heritage Band is an energetic group that plays a wide variety of music, including oldies, rock, standards, blues and country creating great music for dancing and entertainment.
Colt Buckelew & The Crossroads will perform at the Rose Pavilion stage entertaining throughout the car show. From Burnet, The Crossroads tout themselves as "a real country band performing real country music with Lone Star originality." Colt Buckelew & The Crossroads bring the tradition back to county music.
Sunday, March 30, Clark Gardens welcomes Brian Pounds. Pounds will be performing while motorcycle enthusiasts show off their bikes. Brian is from Austin and caught the attention of Blake Shelton and viewers alike on season 5 of The Voice by performing "Wagon Wheel." His music is endearingly honest, and layered with a bite of soul with aspects of jazz, soul, and blues. His musical influences are artists such as Ryan Adams, Amos Lee, and James Taylor.
Children's activities and entertainment include crafts, a puppet show, face painting, and balloon animals, as well as award-winning ventriloquist Nancy Burks Worcester, from Granbury. Nancy, a storyteller, actress, author, and ventriloquist, has performed in thousands of schools and churches all over the country as well as the American school in Tampico, Mexico. Appealing to all ages, Nancy's shows are fresh, funny, and engage children and adults alike. See her show at 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Spring Festival 2014, presented by Community National Bank and Trust of Texas, along with great musical entertainment, will have activities to please everyone in the family. The East Tent hosts three Texas wineries, award winning local Texas artisan cheese makers and an exhibit of Texas artists. Along Summer House Lawn, education stations will demonstrate living life with sustainable practices for children and adults with information and exhibits on bees, chickens, composting, tree pruning and much more. Additional activities include car show (Saturday), motorcycle show (Sunday), and a model train show (Saturday and Sunday)
