Roots artists kick off season with show on Square

Memorial Day marks the second “Summer Music Kickoff” organized by Denton musician Karry Bowman.

The Saturday night concert on the downtown Square is free, and it presents a twangy, roots-driven lineup that pledges allegiance to country and state in sound alone.

Bowman is a singer-guitarist influenced by American rock and roots. He’ll perform some of his songs, and will share the stage with Denton musician and rising Texas rock artist Matt Dunn. Dunn released his debut CD, Black Lines, in January.

Fort Worth singer Tiffany Cupit layers rhythm and blues vocals over twangy country rock. Bowman, Dunn and Cupit headline, but Bowman has planned for more musicians to perform at the concert.

The event is suitable for all ages, and the music starts at 5:30 p.m. Bring lawn chairs and blankets, and grab dinner or dessert on the Square.
