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

Dana Cooper
(www.danacoopermusic.com)

(sponsored by Robert & Martha Holt)

 

Out of the heartland of America, stomping grounds of Truman and Twain, “powerhouse” troubadour Dana Cooper dedicated himself to a life of music over 40 years ago. This song poet engages and inspires audiences around the world with his quick wit, insightful stories and commanding presence. His prolific endeavors have resulted in over 20 albums and he has been invited to participate in songwriting workshops from Belfast to Copenhagen to Austin.

Dana has performed on Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage and the Kerrville Folk Festival where he was nominated for their Hall of Fame. Cooper’s songs have been recorded by top-notch artists such as bluegrass star Claire Lynch; Irish vocalist Maura O’Connell; and luminary songwriters Pierce Pettis and Susan Werner. Cooper’s mixture of flat-picking, finger-picking and percussive strumming style is legend among other guitarists. An expressive singer his voice is ageless evoking a rich lifetime of experience.

Pierce Pettis
(www.piercepettis.com)

(sponsored by Will Davies)

Pierce Pettis began his long career as a writer/artist at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Alabama and later as a staff songwriter for Polygram/Universal Music in Nashville. He is adored by critics and public alike, as one of this generation's most masterful songwriters. His music is distinguished by his uncanny ability to capture the common elements in human experience by drawing on the humor and trials in daily life.

Pierce's music can simultaneously pull on our hearts and keep us laughing. His beautiful harmonies, inventive percussion, strong guitar, and rich vocals are constants throughout his body of work.

His songs have been covered by artists ranging from Garth Brooks and Dion to Joan Baez and Art Garfunkel. Pettis' fifth album for Compass Records (Nashville), "That Kind of Love" (2009), received rave reviews from XM/Sirius Satellite Radio, Paste Magazine, Performing Songwriter, American Songwriter, The (London, UK) Sunday Express, Image Quarterly . . . to name a few. His newest, “New Agrarians” (by the trio of the same name) is a co-effort with Kate Campbell and Tom Kimmel, released November of 2014. Pettis will begin work on a new solo project for Compass Records Group in 2017.

Tom Prasada-Rao
(www.tomprasadarao.com)

(sponsored by Marshall & Penny Endsley)

HE'S BACK IN TEXAS TO JOIN US!!

Tom Prasada-Rao is a musician's musician - an unassuming presence on the folk scene since the early nineties. His rich, effortless voice belies his fine musicianship and extraordinary songs. From Rishi’s Garden with it’s homage to Ravi Shankar to the groove of Sleeping Beauty, Tom’s music is melodic, ambitious, and reverent.

From headlining major festivals 15 years ago, to the relative obscurity of a recording studio - Tom continues to mature as an artist. That work blossomed into an impressive resume of producing credits as well as cuts (his songs covered by other artists).

He's touring again after being featured on the nationally syndicated TV show Troubadour Texas and we're thrilled to have him back on our stage for the fourth time!
