Musical historian, comedian and all-around master of roots-rock guitar-playing Bill Kirchen also hosts a Christmas special. Kirchen came to fame as a member of Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen. Now, the Bearsville Theater presents Bill Kirchen and the Too Much Fun Holiday Honky-Tonk Tour on Sunday, December 7 at 7 p.m.
Kirchen is currently touring with his all-star, all-Austin band: Rick Richards on drums and David Carroll on stand-up bass. Richards has made records and toured with Ray Wylie Hubbard, among many others. This brought him to the attention of Ringo Starr, whose recommendation led to the last three stadium tours drumming with Joe Walsh. David Carroll has played bass with a Who’s Who of Austin artists, including stints with Billy Joe Shaver and Jerry Jeff Walker and a run with Ray Price.
Tickets cost $20, general admission. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock. For more information, visit www.bearsvilletheater.com.
