Art of the Song Festival Fantastic Success!

Three days of music and art! See our Facebook page for many photos and nice comments. Thanks to the City of Nocona, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Chisholm Trail Art Association for all the dedication to make this a great annual event.
A Nocona Nights favorite performer , Tommmy Alverson summed it up best:

“I’ve been doing Nocona Nights for 17 years now. We were the first band to play it. Since then Nocona has invested in itself over and over and it is now really something special. New business folks have taken a leap of faith and have succeeded in a big way! Thanks to Wr Tucker, James Fegnolio and the whole Fegnolio Family, Clint And Dee Brown, and the whole town and everyone involved in the Nocona magic! It is a way of life! Thanks to mi comprades Matt Hillyer, Josh Grider and his lovely wife Christy, Mike Blakely, Susan Gibson, and the Great Johnny Bush! Thx also to Nocona VFW, Red River Pizzeria, the Veranda. And last but not least Don MacLaughlin for the incredible portraits. It was just an awesome weekend and we are very blessed to be a part of it!“

Lost Austin Band at Nocona Nights April 13th at Daddy Sam’s

Season ticket holders will get to hear this remarkable band on Saturday, April 13.  Doors at 6; dinner 6:30; concert 7:15

This concert is sold out.

If you’re not a Season Ticket holder and would like to be on the waiting list for next year, contact noconanights@gmail.com.

“The Country scene of the 1970s put Austin on the international music map when “Willie and Waylon and the Boys” came to town. Now that same magic lives again in The Lost Austin Band.

They were there:  this is their music!  If you’ve heard the music of Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey, Steven Fromholz, Willie Nelson, Rusty Wier, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Willis Alan Ramsey, Denim, B.W. Stevenson or other song-oriented Texas artists, then you’ve heard the music of The Lost Austin Band.

The media called it “Progressive Country,” but the band prefers to call their repertoire a collection of world-class compositions created by some of the finest songwriters in Texas.  Bob Livingston, Bill Browder, Dave Moerbe, Patterson Barrett, Ernie Gammage, and Craig D. Hillis, each with long careers of their own, return to their musical roots as The Lost Austin Band with the songs that created this special time in Texas’s musical history. “

Michael Hearne and SXSW at Daddy Sam’s Saturday, March 23.

Michael and band will be performing Saturday to a sold out crowd.

Doors at 6: dinner 6:30; concert 7

“Michael Hearne’s destiny has been tangled in
wire and wood since he first laid his hands on
a guitar at the age of seven. With a natural ear
for harmony and an aptitude for picking, it
wasn’t long before a young Michael Hearne
was a fixture at parties and local events in his
childhood hometown of Dallas. By the age of
sixteen he had honed his skills on the guitar
and, without a doubt in his mind about his
destiny, he hit the road as a touring musician.

Michael’s career over the next few decades
would take him across the southwest and
beyond. Calling the mountains of northern New
Mexico home for many years, Michael shared
his talents as a singer, songwriter, and picker
in bars, listening rooms and dance halls
throughout the region. In the 1980’s, he toured
as a member of Michael Martin Murphey’s
band, recording on Murphey’s 1982 self-titled
album for Liberty Records. Hearne has penned
songs for Jerry Jeff Walker and Gary P. Nunn
(“Lesson to be Learned from Love”) and his
New Mexico anthem, “New Mexico Rain,” was
recorded by country music legend Johnny
Rodriguez as well as by his uncle and aunt, Bill
and Bonnie Hearne. Michael has also
co-written with Mentor Williams, Andy Byrd,
Shake Russell, Keith Sykes, and many others”
