Wimberley musicians appear in free concert

Wimberley Concert Association
presents a
FREE WELCOME BACK CONCERT

Thursday, January 9th, 2003, 7:30 PM at Chapel in the Hills in Wimberley, Texas

Although most of you have already begun work and school for the year 2003, there is still time to have a bit of fun and enjoy some great music. Wimberley Concert Association welcomes you back from the holidays with a free concert featuring: The Spurs of the Moment, Hot Flash, and the William Pugatch Classical Guitar Trio.

The Spurs of the Moment are an energetic, acoustic string band from Wimberley. Encouraged to join forces by the youth talent competition held at the Old Settlers' Music Festival (which they won), The Spurs have been performing together since April 2002. Although they have been called "the best little bluegrass band in Wimberley," they play a wide range of traditional music, including gospel, swing, and Celtic tunes.

Spurs of the Moment
Jessie Chisholm, Sarah Jarosz, and Nathan Barecky

The members of The Spurs are Jesse Chisholm, Sarah Jarosz, and Nathan Barecky. Jesse Chisholm, a seasoned performer at age 11, is a long-time student of Suzuki violin and Texas fiddling. He plays some dazzling fiddle breaks and delights audiences with an old-time Texas fiddle tune or two. Jesse placed 3rd in the age 16 and under division at the Texas State Fiddle Championships in December 2002. Sarah Jarosz, lead singer and mandolinist, also 11, is equally comfortable on stage. She has one of those powerful voices that has been amazing audiences since she was age 2. Nathan Barecky, age 12, keeps the band together with his rhythm guitar. Nathan wants to learn every style of music on the guitar, and currently studies Suzuki/classical, Texas-style, and flat-picking. 

Originally the name, The Spurs of the Moment, came from the hurried manner in which the band formed, but the name has stuck with them because the members continually spur each other on to higher levels of musicianship.

Hot Flash
Amy Cartee, Brenda Freed, and Karen Peters

Hot Flash is called "a cappella and then some" and for good reason. Their shows include voices alone, or voices accompanied by any combination of guitar, piano, harmonica, djembe, or even spoons. Hershall Seals of the Belton Acoustic Concert Series recently said, "Hot Flash charmed the sox off the Belton Acoustic Concert-goers. Besides bare feet, we now have the remembered pleasures of being entertained by three gracious and attractive women with magnetic personalities.

Their professionalism and terrifically crafted vocal harmonies are a must-hear." Hot Flash members are: Amy Cartee, Brenda Freed, and Karen Peters.

The William Pugatch Classical Guitar Trio was discovered recently by a Wimberley Concert Association member at a holiday party in Austin. WCA decided this trio was so good that they should share them with the rest of Wimberley's music lovers.

The January WCA concert is free, so join WCA at Chapel in the Hills (14601 Ranch Road 12, across from the Dairy Queen) in Wimberley, Thursday January 9th, at 7:30 PM, and enjoy the music!

Other WCA concerts in the near future include:

Pianist Timothy Woolsey, February 13, 2003 - 7:30 to 9:00 PM. Dr. Woolsey returns for the 19th consecutive season to delight us with his talent, mastery, and selections. He also entrances us with the background narratives and music appreciation tips he shares.
