Alverson sings Willie, Waylon and the boys in free show
Fort Worth country crooner Tommy Alverson performs at Aubrey’s Music in the Park series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The series enters its third year, staged at the Aubrey Downtown Festival Grounds, 301 S. Main St.
Keep Aubrey Beautiful launched this free summer music series in 2010, hosting a Texas act downtown on the third Saturday of May, June and July.
Alverson is a Texas music ambassador. He’s an unassuming artist who doesn’t force things, vocally or instrumentally.
With about nine records to his name, Alverson’s most recent pays tribute to Willie Nelson. Pickin’ on Willie is a record that meanders along, with the slide guitar ever so slightly behind the beat. Alverson’s compilation album, Paradise Here, is also of recent vintage, collecting some of the artist’s favorites “Pancho and Lefty,” “Feel Like Drinkin’,” and “Una Mas Cerveza” among them.
Attendees are welcome to bring blankets and lawn chairs to the concert. Coolers are allowed, but concessions will be available on the festival grounds. For more information, visit www.keepaubreybeautiful.org .
