The 1st Annual Blanco Western Showcase is quickly coming upon us! We are pleased to announce two amazing performers who will be with us, Jean Prescott and K.R. Wood.
Jean Prescott is a multiple award winner and, with her beautiful voice singing about life and the women of the West, this is sure to be something you won’t want to miss. Jean has numerous CDs available and she has won many awards. A few accomplishments throughout her years of singing and songwriting include: Academy of Western Artists Female Vocalist of the Year, Western Music Association Female Entertainer of the Year, and many more. She has even been honored by the Texas State Legislature for preserving Texas history and music. Jean will honor us by singing around the chuck wagons on Saturday, November 3, 2012 and Sunday morning. If you love that old-time country feel, you definitely don’t want to miss this.
If you have never had the chance to see one of K.R. Wood’s shows, also known as Camp Cookie, then you have missed a great show! Luckily, K.R. Wood will be at the Blanco Western Showcase and he will put on a great show you won’t want to miss! K.R. Wood is not only a singer and songwriter, he is also a musician, historian, and actor. He has been in several movies, such as “Hotwired” and “Urban Cowboy,” and also many television shows including, “The Big 40” and “On the Road with Willie Nelson.” For nearly 20 years, K.R. has traveled across Texas keeping history alive by singing and telling many tales. He has been recognized by many, including the House of Representatives as well as the Senate, for his work on keeping Texas history alive with his documentary “Fathers of Texas: 175 Years of Texas Independence.” K.R. loves to perform and either performs solo or with his band and can perform at many different events. Stories are brought to life and K.R. makes history fun and exciting for the children to learn; in fact, people of all ages are excited to learn while watching his shows.
Along with Jean Prescott and K.R. Wood, we are having other performers, including Jack Dagger, Dan Mink, Mike and Rosa Gross, and Mike Bainton, the 11th Annual World Championship Knife and Tomahawk Competition, a chuck wagon cook-off and meal on Saturday, Saturday night dance, vendor set up, kids’ corral, carriage rides, Buggy Barn Museum tours, silent auction, and riding Longhorn.
