Local News! for Tyler / Longview

Houston vocalist Trudy Lynn will appear at the T-Bone Walker Blues Fest in Longview, Texas, September 13, 2014.

Blues festival female vocalist Trudy Lynn tops Billboard chart

... "the defining recording of Lynn's career thus far. The Houston native has been performing for more than 50 years, but never before has the dynamic range of her voice been so sympathetically captured and brilliantly projected on record. She purrs, growls, whispers and blares the blues, with exquisite backing."

Working with Fuzzy is a humbling experience because he is immensely talented and skilled but never seeks out notoriety, publicity or fame. It’s all about the sound. That kind of genuine dedication to the art of his craft versus the trade of his profession is a rare quality.


The installation Napoleon’s Wallpaper by SFA School of Art faculty Candace Hicks is like a room-sized book telling a story while presenting a puzzle. This installation along with the SFA Faculty Exhibition opens at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

Improv Classes to be held at Liberty Hall

“Improv was an outlet for me when I was going through a rough time in life. I quickly learned how the principles of improvisational comedy can be applied to everyone and all aspects of life,” Whitley shared. “It’s great not only for actors and comedians but it’s also perfect for the everyday business person looking to get more comfortable in front of people. It’s also a good way to find that child-like sense of play we sometimes lose when we decide to grow up.”
