Cory Morrow to Headline Jubilee Street Dance
LIBERTY, March 14, 2014 - There's one place to be in Southeast Texas on Friday night, March 28 and that is the annual Liberty Jubilee Street Dance in downtown Liberty between the Courthouse and Liberty City Hall.
Cory Morrow's humble artistic beginnings read like the gritty lyrics of an unwritten Townes Van Zandt song. This straight-shooting musician, who droped his ninth solo release Vagrants And Kings, started strumming at the age of 15. He began playing gigs with a band, honing his songwriting craft and stretching his raw vocals by studying singers like Don Williams and Merle Haggard. Fifteen years, and thousands of live shows later, Morrow has emerged as one of the lone star state's best-loved artists. Revered along with college pal Pat Green as a preservationist of the unique Texas music sound, which combines elements of country, bluegrass, swing and blues, Morrow inspires a fierce loyalty in his fans.
The street dance is set for 8 p.m. to midnight on March 28. The dance will open at 8:15 p.m. to 9:45 with Texas Renegade Band. The Cory Morrow Band will take the stage at 10:15 p.m.
Texas Renegade is an up and coming band consisting of twin brothers Tyson and Eli Carver along with Andrew Bertelsen, who handles lead vocals, guitar and songwriting. Tyson handles mandolin, guitar and backup vocals, while Eli takes care of the bass. Rounding out the band is drummer Luke Ayres and guitarist Hunter St. Marie.
