DESERT PEARL—Saturday April 27th, 2013

There’s nothing like live music on a Saturday night!!

You are invited to enjoy the unique music of Lubbock’s own Desert Pearl on Saturday April 27th, 2013 @ 7:30 pm.

Admission-$10.00 at the door

           Desert Pearl is a seven piece band that performs original music along with a variety of bluegrass, folk, and country. British born Joe Gillis, the founder of the group, has performed with groups such as the Prairie Heirs of the Palo Duro, a traditional cowboy band that toured Germany in 1998, The String Technicians who were on the Texas Commission For the Arts Touring Roster, and as a solo singer/songwriter with two recording projects, “Moon Over the Palo Duro”, and” Lost Angel Diner”. All these musical influences are infused with the sounds and talents of the members of Desert Pearl.

Juli Handley sings lead and harmony and also plays guitar, piano, and hand percussion. Two sixteen year olds, Patrick Herzog on guitar and mandolin and Clarisa Ham on violin and vocals are two of Lubbock’s finest young musicians.

Amy Carroll, an original member of the group, sings lead and harmony with her crisp, clear voice, Darryl Lemons supports the groups sound with his steady bass runs and Justin Handley is a master of effects on his electric guitar. You will also enjoy the old time fiddle sounds of special guest Jim Bob Clary of Idalou.

 Desert Pearl has performed at venues that include The Gem Theater in Claude, The Home Mercantile in Nazareth, The Grill on Rt 66, in Groom, Lubbock Arts Festival, 4th on Broadway, and the Apple Butter Festival. With one recording project under their belt, “Psalm 33”, a new all original CD is on tap for this year.

Cary Cooper

In early 2011, Cary was spotted by the producers of Troubadour, TX, a new TV docu-drama that premiered in September 2011 on the CW network. Along with several other Texas songwriters (including her husband, Tom Prasada-Rao), Cary was cast on the show. Part of her appeal is the unique songs she’s been writing on her cute little pineapple ukulele. Cary picked up the uke in the summer of 2010 and it blew open the door to a brand new batch of songs that are featured on her newest CD, “Pink Umbrella”, which was released in the fall of 2011 coinciding with her main stage set at the Kerrville Wine & Music Festival and the debut of Troubadour, TX.

A multi-dimensional artist, Cary brings honesty and clarity to her music, and subsequently to your heart.

Singer/Songwriter Kem Watts and her band, Kem and the Pistols, are coming from Austin, Texas, to perform a house concert at Uncle Bill’s Music Barn on April 28th. Kem is another featured musician playing at the Barn who grew up in Lubbock.

Austin singer-songwriter Kem Watts grew up in Lubbock, following the family musical heritage of her father, Dennis Watts, and her brother, Dary Watts. Kem says, “I was raised in Lubbock, Texas, and grew up in a family of musicians. I have been singing since I was a young girl. However, I got a late start in picking up the guitar. I first began writing songs acappella in my early 20’s shortly after moving to Austin, Texas. I had things to express so I figured I better get with the program and learn how to play an instrument so that I could get my point across the way I heard the melodies in my head. I picked up the guitar and taught myself to play in 2006 and haven’t stopped yet. I have many mentors and friends that continue to guide and support me along the way, and for that I am blessed! I write about nature, love, life, and I have been told by many people that my songs tell a story! I just do what comes from the heart and there is nothing better than sharing music with your friends. I hope you enjoy!”

Kem tours Texas three times a year and has also toured Quebec with her good singer-songwriter friend, Emilie Clepper. Kem has shared the stage with many personal friends, including Earl Poole Ball, Monty Montgomery, John Inmon, Ponty Bone, Van Wilks, Paul McLaughlin, Dale Watson, and more. Kem and her four-piece band, Kem and the Pistols, perform regularly in Austin. You’ll also often find Kem performing at various musical festivals. Drop on by for a great show!
