The Old Firehouse
8241 FM 279 - Downtown Edom, TX 75754 - (903) 852-ART1(2781)
Original Singer/Songwriter Folk Music

Concert Calendar


Our small, intimate, smoke-free and alcohol-free "Coffeehouse" music room is host to singer/songwriters from all over the country who stop in Edom to entertain with their original music. With concerts approximately once each month, most of the money collected for ticket sales will go to the artist. Coffee, Soft Drinks, and Desserts are available before and during the concerts.

ADMISSION POLICY:
Since our room is relatively small (around 50-70 seats), we strongly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance to insure seating. If you purchase in advance, you will be on the "Early Entry List" and be the first to enter the music room! Admission prices are indicated for each concert. Advance ticket purchases can be made up to the day before the concert using the paypal button or by calling 903-852-2781 to arrange payment by check or by credit card. Checks must be received no later than 2 days prior to the concert (along with contact info in the event the concert is already sold out). Paypal and Credit Card payments will incur a service fee (amount indicated in each concert description) to cover the cost of processing and any other fees (so that performers will still get the full admission). PLEASE NOTE that we are NOT a non-profit organization so any donations are NOT tax-deductible. In order to maintain a quiet listening environment, we ask that members of our audience please be over 13 years of age unless otherwise indicated.

COME EARLY - ENJOY EDOM!

The Old Firehouse is a "labor of love" brought to you by Jeff & Judy Gottesman. While we are not a "not for profit" organization, we still need to make a small profit in order to cover our expenses. Please consider making a donation to enable us to continue bringing the music we all love to Edom. Donations are NOT tax-deductible, but sure help us make ends meet. Thanks.....Jeff & Judy

Jacob Johnson
(www.jacobjohnsontunes.com)

This Concert is Sponsored by Jan Marler

Jacob Johnson, long considered the Sinatra of Neo-Acoustic Folk/Funk, attacks his guitar like a man possessed...like a fella who’s just discovered the instrument and is hell-bent on figuring out what the dag-blasted thing can do.

It’s not just Jacob Johnson’s guitar virtuosity that’ll stop you in your tracks. It’s his infectious joy for playing and performing that captures you, locks you in, and sends you back into your life two steps happier. Pure musical joy works that way. It infects us, seeps into our pores, makes our hearts full. Indeed, Jacob Johnson woos us all with the kind of music we fell in love with music for in the first place—infectious folk songs played with the sincere conviction that no tune can change the world, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing...

Adler & Hearne
(www.adlerandhearne.com)

This Concert is Sponsored by Glynn & Windell Horton

 

From Texas’ upper east side, award-winning performing songwriters Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne (self-proclaimed “organic song farmers”) tour nationally, serving up seasoned original songs mixed with fresh harvests of homegrown music in a spirited and soulful genre they define simply as "Texas Folk,” with subtle jazz and blues overtones. In concert, she (Adler) and he (Hearne) blend their voices and instruments in a spirited signature sound that reflects their true second-nature connection through song.

In June 2014, the duo was honored by the Texas Commission on the Arts, being named to the state’s official Texas Touring Roster for the September 2014-2016 touring season -- an honor that now has been extended through August of 2018.

This is their third visit to The Old Firehouse, and we are always thrilled to have them back.

Dana Hubbard
(www.danahubbard.com)

 

Dana Hubbard's been described as ”a cross between Bruce Cockburn and Jorma Kaukonen". He combines the socially conscious singer/songwriter with the master acoustic blues guitarist, awing people with guitar skills that defy the ear and eye. The list of folks he's opened for and shared the bill with span the spectrum from blues to folk to bluegrass.

Thematically, his lyrics are biased toward political outrage and social indictment. Hubbard is a storyteller who makes his point without ramming it into the listener's brain cells. Music is always foremost; this isn't a polemic.

This is Dana's first visit to Edom and we want to give him a warm welcome.

Danny Schmidt
(www.dannyschmidt.com)

Named to the Chicago Tribune's 50 Most Significant Songwriters in the Last 50 Years, Austin, TX-based singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt has amassed a cult following for his stunningly poetic, poignant imagery.

With lyrical depth drawing comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Townes Van Zandt, and Dave Carter, Danny is considered a preeminent writer, an artist whose earthy poetry manages to somehow conjure magic from the mundane, leading Sing Out Magazine to tag him as: "Perhaps the best new songwriter we've heard in the last 15 years."

Performing solo almost exclusively, armed with just his voice, his acoustic guitar, and his acute commentary, Schmidt's an authentic timeless troubadour, one man sharing his truth in the form of songs, unadorned and intimate. The understated effect can be startlingly powerful. As songwriter Jeffrey Foucault put it: "Everything about the man is gentle, except for his capacity for insight, which is crushing."

Danny has been here several times before, and always is a crowd favorite.
