Yellow City Sounds Live season to wrap with married songwriting duo
Last Updated by
UPDATE: We are officially sold out, but we are taking names for a waiting list. Plus, you can watch live on our Facebook page and our website, or listen live on FM90!
Patton and Eady will perform at 7 p.m. Nov. 21 in the Panhandle PBS studio, 2408 S. Jackson St., in an intimate concert — a joint production of Panhandle PBS and Amarillo College's FM90.
Patton is a Texas native whose storytelling and songwriting is drawn from her own life, as seen in her third solo album, What It’s Like to Fly Alone, released in 2018.
Eady is an Americana singer-songwriter originally from Mississippi who’s now a vital part of the Texas country music scene. Naming such performers as Merle Haggard, Guy Clark and Willie Nelson as his inspirations, Eady says he strives for honesty in his writing.
The pair released a duets album, Something Together, in 2017.
“Courtney Patton and Jason Eady are two of the most highly regarded acts in Texas,” said FM90 program director Amy Presley. “They have only rarely performed together in Amarillo, so this will be a real treat.”
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Empty seats will be released by 6:50 p.m. and given to someone on the waiting list. The show starts promptly at 7 p.m. and will be streamed live and recorded for later broadcast, so late arrivals inside the main studio are not allowed.
Those who can’t attend the concert can listen on Amarillo College’s FM90 (89.9 FM) or online (kacvfm.org) or watch a livestream on Panhandle PBS’s home page (panhandlepbs.org) and Facebook page (facebook.com/panhandlepbs).
The 2019 Yellow City Sounds Live series previously has included jazz/swing trio Snaps for Sinners on June 27, country icon Michael Martin Murphey on Aug. 5, Americana singer-songwriters Matt Martindale and Charlie Shafter on Sept. 12 and blues-rockers Cody Jasper and Johnny Reverb on Oct. 3.
Support for this concert series is provided by the Gilliland Family Foundation, Reed Beverage and Hampton Inn — Amarillo West.
