The Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library is excited to welcome back musician Ken Gaines this Friday, July 19, beginning at 2 p.m. in the library meeting room. Gaines will present “Classic Songs and the Folks Who Wrote Them.” The hour-long presentation will provide a variety of classic songs to enjoy.
A Houston-area singer/songwriter, guitarist, producer and teacher, Gaines has the goal of writing great songs in just about every genre and style you can come up with.
“For all the great songs that have been written, I belong to a wonderful tribe who believe there are at least as many great ones still to be written,” Gaines said.
Since the fall of 1998, Gaines has produced and hosted the songwriter’s series at Houston’s legendary Anderson Fair. These Thursday-night productions have become a must for traveling artists from all over the world who are touring Texas, as well as many of Texas’ best singer/songwriters. Gaines is also a regular at the Kerrville Folk Festival both on stage and around the song circles, and in 2009 was chosen as the festival opener.
Friday’s presentation is free and open to the public and will provide for a fun, musical afternoon. For more information, contact the library reference desk at (830) 258-1274.
