Haywire Bluegrass Band performing April 7

The Haywire Bluegrass Band is closing the DAAS season on Saturday, April 7 at 7:00 pm at the George S. Woods Community Center.

The Devine Area Artists’ Series will close out the 2017-18 season with The Haywire Bluegrass Band on April 7. This talented band, based out of the Kerrville/Fredericksburg area, is an entertaining five person acoustic band that brings the rich sounds of bluegrass to any genre of music. You will be tapping your foot and dancing in your seat!
You will recognize Gary Hatch, stand up bass player, who has appeared here with the “Sentimental Journey Orchestra” and “Harry and the High Tones.” He easily plays country, bluegrass, jazz, swing and gospel, as he sings high harmonies.
David Goodnight started out playing rock on his rhythm guitar and singing lead until he heard “Deliverance” on the radio and his fascination with 5 string banjo began. He has played in various bluegrass bands in the North Texas area, meeting and making friends with some of the Nashville stars of today.
Britt Pounds grew up in the Church of Christ, primarily in West Texas, singing and developing his talent for harmonies. He plays rock and roll, western swing, bluegrass, and cowboy music. He will be playing guitar during our concert.
David Wilson, mandolin player, spends his time picking with his Haywire bandmates and in private jam sessions with Ricky Scaggs, Claire Lynch, Rhonda Vincent, and others. He plays mandolin, guitar, and sings with friends in the Hill Country area, church, and with other bands.
Jenny Lynn, a Kerrville native, has been singing all her life. Growing up in a musical family gave her a variety of training from her father, mother and grandparents, in addition to her involvement in school and church choirs. She was a member of her high school jazz show choir for 3 years.
You can expect a lot of musical ability among these five musicians. The evening will also feature artwork by artists who study at Daystar Studio/Gallery in Devine. The studio was established by Joyce Bendele in 2008 to provide a place for art enthusiasts to gather and study.
The concert will be held in the George S. Woods Community Center in Devine at 7:30 pm on Saturday, April 7. Tickets at the door are $10.00 and students K-12 are admitted free if accompanied by an adult. Free refreshments are served at the intermission and parking is also free.
