December 04, 2015 at One World Theatre in Austin, TX.
Beloved torchbearer of western music and once member of the country outlaw movement, Michael Martin Murphey returns to the One World Theatre with his cowboy Christmas ball. The multiple GRAMMY nominated singer songwriter (“Wildfire,” “Carolina in the Pines,” “Land of Enchantment,” etc.) strings together traditions of yesteryear with the charm and reverence for the things that matter most today. “The Cowboy Christmas Ball is steeped in everything I hold dear of growing up in Texas at Christmas time,” Murphey said. “All the old dances are here… the waltzes, the mazurkas, the Paul Jones, the Virginia Reel… all these dances are still done here. The women make their own costumes and clothes and the men still wear string ties and frock coats. It’s a family reunion of friends.” “This is my favorite season of the year,” Murphey continued. “We remember our fathers and mothers. We celebrate our children and we treasure our friends and the many blessing given by our Lord. It really brings out the very best in all of us.”
Performances at 7 & 9:30 pm. For ticketing & dinner information please call 888.616.0522
