Country Music Monday

It’s the time of the year to open you hearts and ears to the music of Christmas. Country Music Monday hosts a must hear program on Monday, December 5th at the GHS Cafetorium, on Highway 77 North of Giddings.

Highlighting the evening’s performance are the following: Ken Brothers, Sally Carlson, Phil Livengood, Camille Sanders and Richard Wolff.

Ken Brothers and Sally Carlson are well known throughout the area for their artistic abilities in presenting a variety of country and gospel music.

Phil “ Philharmonic” Livengood’s primary instrument is the Diatonic or Tremolo Harmonica. At the age of 12 he started playing the harmonica while driving farm equipment on his family’s farm in Northwest Missouri. At that time it was the best way to get in many hours of practice without annoying anyone. After college and moving to Texas for employment in the gas pipeline field, he advanced to playing in many Texas oprys sitting in with bands, writing songs, and performing studio work. Phil has put forth his fullest effort to create his own style of playing to make the harmonica a strong lead and rhythm instrument.

Richard Wolfe has been playing music since the age of 10 when he was taught to play guitar by his father, R. L. Wolfe. He has worked with Johnny Bush, Johnny Rodriguez, Fiddlin’ Frenchie Burke, and Ray Price, to name just a few.

Camille Sanders began playing the piano at the young age of three and by the time she was nine she was playing the fiddle with her grandfather at Gospel shows around Texas. In her early teen years, she began singing as a solo artist and playing the guitar at shows and oprys. She has sung and played for Governor Dolph Brisco, opened for notable Country Music performers, and performed around Texas, Colorado, and Nashville.

Each month the Rotary Club of Giddings brings you the best musical talent in Central Texas and these performers, plus the regular Country Music Monday back-up band, will be the beginning of your Christmas holiday entertainment. The doors open at 5:15 P.M. with the program beginning at 7:30 P.M. Admission is $ 5.00, food is available, and assisted parking and help for those who are disabled, join in making your evening a pleasant one.
