Southlake, Texas – Arts Council Northeast and the City of Southlake are pleased to welcome Bone Doggie for a free concert on April 12, 2014. The concert will take place in Family Park, located in Southlake Town Square, from 7:30 p.m.- 9:00 p.m.
A whiskey voice, lightning fingers and a strong love of the nostalgic are the best ways to sum up a Bone Doggie from South Kansas City that plays the Delta Blues on an Irish Bouzouki. A 25-year veteran of countless classic rock, jazz and progressive bands, Bone Doggie has finally settled comfortably into the world of hard core Delta Blues and American Roots Music. “The Delta Blues can ONLY be considered the absolute roots of Rock and Roll, (which is where my roots truly are) and the wealth of material is at the same time humbling and staggering,” he says, “Not to mention the fact that it’s just a hoot to play.” As for the Irish Bouzouki, “Roots again,” says Doggie, “Lots of Irish in this bloodline. Besides, after so many years I wanted to play an instrument that was a bit . . . different than the beaten track. And the bouzouki sounds so old-timey! The thing just rocks.”
