This year the live music stage presented by Kroger will include a number of singer/songwriter artists performing original music.
10:30 a.m. – Erica Honore
Erica Honore is a singer/songwriter from Houston, Texas. Erica got her start when she sang with Martina McBride at the age of 14. Erica has an EP out on iTunes and Spotify titled “My Heart Says”. You can find her at @ericahonore on all social media platforms!
12:45 p.m. – Amanda Pascali & The Family
Renaissance woman and singer/songwriter, Amanda Pascali was born in Queens, New York and is based in Houston, Texas. Her music, as it has been performed for packed houses in Europe as well as in the United States, showcases her traditional influences, but she is no copy of anyone. As the daughter of an Eastern European refugee with Sicilian heritage, Amanda writes with a sincerity which shows us that home is truly where the heart is. Amanda and her group’s music, now coined Immigrant American Folk, delivers a powerful narrative on being “too foreign for here, too foreign for home, and never enough for both.”
3:00 p.m. – Grifters & Shills
High lonesome heavy metal – amplifyin’ and testifyin’ for your soul. His was hard rock and heavy metal. Hers was the classic sound of the East Texas piney woods. Theirs was a fiery collision of roots, blues, and high lonesome harmony singing.
10:30 a.m. – Brightwire
Brightwire is an Americana duo born out of a household of musicians and hailing from southeast Texas. Combining elements of folk, rock and whatever else they happen to get interested in, they weave tales of lives lived in our world today. For them, music is about inclusion and letting others know they are not alone in their struggles.
12:45 p.m. – John Egan
Musician John Egan has a unique sound ranging from traditional country blues to a more modern songwriter style. He is a masterfully skilled guitar player who uses poetic lyrics and vintage resonator guitars to create an expressive personal music. Often performing solo, Egan’s guitar style includes, in effect, playing bass, lead, and percussion, all at the same time. He says, “the rarefied air where Lightnin’ Hopkins met Townes Van Zandt serves as an inspiration and an ideal.”
3:00 p.m. – Mystery Loves Company
The dynamic duo known as Mystery Loves Company is comprised of Maddy, a conservatory-trained cellist with a highly technical musical background, and Carlos, a self-taught songwriter and guitarist from Venezuela. The two have struck upon a mystifying sound, rich with natural acoustics and laced with deeply felt sentiments regarding human struggle, safety, worth and equality.
Food Truck Court
The Food Truck Court will offer delicious, menu items from popular food trucks including Pearland’s Nacho Nachos, Space City Spudz and JAX Burgers.
Pearland’s own BAKFISH Brewing Company will be on-site selling in the Bistro tent area selling craft beers (wine also available) to accompany food truck menu items.
Renowned visual painter, Ange Hillz, will live paint a commissioned work of art celebrating Pearland’s upcoming 125th anniversary in 2019. Don’t miss this special presentation on Saturday, October 6 from 1 to 4 p.m.
