Holly Williams is the granddaughter of Hank Williams, Sr.

Aside from the family tradition, she has talent.

I have tickets to see her in Houston on July 11th.

The "Duck" is going to be a great venue for her show. I'll be the guy with the big bowl of beef and carrots and a Harp at the 7:00.

Holly Williams closed her performance with "I Saw The Light" [the video isn't from her Mucky Duck show].

I recorded the sound, but not a video. It got the crowd going.

Dadtodabone - I was too late to get tickets for the dinner show, but had a great dinner at the Haven.

Lucky you! That should be a great show.

I am thinking about Joe Ely next month.

For those who haven't been to McGonigel's Mucky Duck, it is a terrific venue for acoustic music.

There are about 200 seats, so they are all close to the stage. No big screen monitors required. :=)

They have "name" performers as well as upcoming talent. Tickets are typically $20-40.

For their dinner show, they serve pub food, such as beef Guinness, Shepard's Pie, Welsh rarebit, Scotch eggs, fish & chips.

Their food is reasonably priced and excellent quality.

It is my favorite place to see live music in Houston.

One of the great blues guitarists.

David Phelps. In my opinion one of the greatest tenors in gospel music.

I agree with your review of the Duck. Have enjoyed many wonderful performances there.

Very nice performance. Mr. Phelps has a wonderfully expressive voice with impressive range and power.
