Before the holiday season gets into full swing, treat yourself to an evening of wonderful music and storytelling. Join us this Saturday, November 19, at 8 PM, as guitarist Chase Padgett presents the journeys of six musicians as only he can portray them.

Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he deftly alternates between blues, jazz, rock, classical, folk and country.

You also can take a walk down memory lane with We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered, on Saturday, Deccarpentersremembered-vertember 10. Bring the entire family out for an evening of pop music that celebrates the music of one of the most successful recording acts of all time.  Led by Michelle Berting Brett and accompanied by a live, seven-piece Nashville band, this show re-creates the Carpenters’ original sound.

Palladian Series Continues With Lee Roy Parnell

Country and blues artist Lee Roy Parnell appears at The Clayton Center on Saturday, March 12, at 8 PM. Opening the show will be Nashville recording artist Kennedy Fitzsimmons and guitarist Walter Garland.

Parnell is one of a long line of Texas roots-music eclectics and is among the elite few who are identified as a triple threat. He’s not only an ace guitarist; he is a distinctive singer and a hit songwriter. He has enjoyed a run of success on the country and blues charts, and reached notoriety in the mid 1990s with his chart-topping singles “What Kind of Fool Do You Think I Am” (1992), “Tender Moment” (1993), and “A Little Bit of You” (1995).

Today, Parnell draws from a broad range of musical sources — including Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House Rock, Southern Boogie, Texas Swing, and Gospel —and combines them with seamless dexterity.

Throughout his career, Parnell has recorded eight studio albums, charted more than 20 singles on the Billboard charts and has been honored with numerous Grammy Award nominations. Click here to purchase tickets.
