As part of its “Austin to Archbold Concert Series,” the Archbold Music Commission is presenting two free concerts featuring Texas Music Legends Hall of Fame members.
Will Sexton and Bill Carter, with critically-acclaimed Amy LaVere, will appear Thursday, Sept. 6., and Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame members Al Dressen and Carolyn Martin, with South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Rory Hoffman on Friday, Oct. 26. Both concerts will be held at Ruihley Park.
What began as an effort to provide entertainment during Archbold’s sesquicentennial in 2016 is now well into its third season. Archbold native Max Nofziger, a former Austin, Texas, city councilman, who was intrumental in helping develop Austin as the “Live Music Capitol of the World,” returns home each summer and produces the A2A series.
With ongoing support from Archbold Village Council, the Department of Parks and Recreation, Archbold Area Foundation, and Ohio Arts Council, the series has expanded to eight shows this year, including three Hall of Fame events. The music commission has also introduced new venues in the downtown music district and at Woodland Park.
All Archbold Music Commission shows are free and open to the public. More details about the Archbold Music Commission and its programming can be found at www.archboldmusic.com, and on Facebook.
