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.

Headlining the free street dance will be Cory Morrow, born and raised in Texas and a local legend in the Lone Star State. Morrow has produced a handful of self-released albums and played an endless string of shows from Amarillo to Corpus Christi that have made him a major attraction in the Southwest.

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.

The Liberty Jubilee is a family fun festival that gets underway at noon on Friday, March 28 and continues throughout the day on Saturday, March 29.
