ASG is honored to be hosting its 12th Annual Merle Haggard Birthday Bash on Sunday, April 9th, 2017 at Threadgill’s World Headquarters. This will be the first year for the annual celebration of Merle’s music since he passed away last year.
It’s hard to believe we have been doing this now for a dozen years and if you have attended in the past you know it is a great day of music and fun in the sun in Threadgill’s world famous beer garden.
Threadgill’s World Headquarters has been the home of the annual Merle tribute since its inception and the slate of performers is one of the best ever. This year’s amazing house band will include guitar aces Redd Volkaert and Chris Gage, along with Floyd Domino, David Carroll, Abe Manuel, Rich White, Michael Barger, Gabe Rhodes and others, with special guest vocalists throughout the show. The list of performers and special guests confirmed at this writing include Roger Allen and Ted Branson (who will be serving as host MC’s throughout the show) Lee Duffy, Rick Busby, Bob Livingston, Bob Cheevers, Tish Hinojosa, Patti Dixon, Peggy Wright, Paul Wright, Volney Campbell, Micah Wagner, Richard Howard, Claudia Gibson, Jesse Stratton, Gregg Miller, Jim Heckroth, Jimmy LaFave, Christy Moore, Giulia Millanta, Craig Irvin, Craig Marshall, Devin Jake, Kady Rain and more.
Once again, the date is set for Sunday, April 9th from 4-8 PM in the beer garden at Threadgill’s World Headquarters. The annual event is co-sponsored by ASG and the Texas Songwriters Association. There is no cover, but love offerings and donations are happily accepted.
