MSC: Walt Wilkins in Marble Falls this weekend!

From our good friends in Marble Falls:

Sam Baker & Walt Wilkins

We’ll Take Europe Show
Uptown Marble Theater July 20, 2008

The Uptown Marble Theatre and GTT Entertainment proudly bring a preview of what two of America’s finest poets will be unleashing on the Old World. Walt Wilkins and Sam Baker are heading out on a three week trek across Europe to play the songs, tell the stories and paint the pictures using only words, six steel strings and two lifetimes of experiences most people just read about. The setting for this collage of verbal visuals is the beautiful Uptown Marble Theater, 218 Main Street, Marble Falls Texas. The show is a Sunday matinee and starts at 2:00 PM. Tickets are $12.00 in advance, $15.00 day of show, and are available online at www.uptownmarble.com, by phone at 830-693-9996, or at the R-Bar & Grill, 904 3rd St, Marble Falls, TX. Call the theater for information about limited table seating in front of the stage for n $20.

Walt Wilkins has been called the heir apparent to the Texas Songwriters legacy tradition established by Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt and Billy Joe Shaver. His 2007 CD release (Diamonds in the Sun Palo Duro Records) with the Hill Country Super Band “The Mystiqueros” strengthens Wilkins’ reputation as a strong performer and band leader. Holding a place on the Americana Music Chart for over 50 weeks since the debut in 2007 (with 9 weeks in the top 10) is only one more example of the large net that Walt Wilkins’ talent throws. Chet Flippo of CMT’s website calls Diamonds “one of the Top 10 Best of 2007”. The CD made several “Top of 2007” lists.

Sam Baker may not be a household name in the U.S…..That may be by design. Sam’s two independently released CDs “Mercy” and “Pretty World” have enjoyed amazing acceptance in Europe with “Pretty World” Charting at #1 before it was even released in the United States. Both Recordings were Co-Produced by Wilkins. Joining Walt & Sam may be various Mystiqueros and some special other suprized guests.
