Music on Main 2018 Line-up

| March 22, 2018 | Reply

Friday Nights in Texas just took on new meaning, what with Denison’s Main Street announcing its 2018 Music on Main line-up this week. And it’s a good one, that includes local musicians opening for each touring act. The concerts are always free to the public, always at Heritage Park on Main Street, always start at 7:30 p.m., always have food and drink vendors, and always bring the best in music. The first concert will be on May 25 and the series will run continuously through July 27.

May 25 – The Texoma Gospel Saints with Billie Jo Sewell

June 1 – Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown with Sons of Fannin

June 8 – Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience with Jim Stewart

June 15 – Josh Weathers with Jared Mitchell Band

June 22 – Max Stalling with Travis Parker

June 29 – Jack Ingram with Greg Guymon

July 6 – Black Dirt Playboys with Bailey Wesberry

July 13 – Sisters Morales with Jason Elmore & Hoodoo Witch

July 20 – Two Tons of Steel with Mark Shelton & The Greater Good

July 27 – Shenandoah featuring Marty Raybon with Chris Colston

Tyler Bryant is the adult version of that young guitar picker who wowed the Honey Grove crowd consistently about 15-ish years ago, and who then went by his middle name, too, Tyler Dow Bryant. The Black Dirt Playboys are a group out of, basically, Whitewright. Max Stalling is a story-teller-in-song deluxe, and of course any Texas music lover knows Jack Ingram. Jason Elmore will be coming back here to his original stompin’ grounds to open for the Sisters Morales. And who doesn’t know Shenandoah?

In all, there will be blues, gospel, rockabilly, country, Red Dirt and Texas country, rock, zydeco, songwriters, great instrumentation, lead vocals and harmonies, and who knows what else to please our musical palates.

It’s suggested that patrons bring lawn chairs or quilts, for their own comfort.

“I think this and 2015 have been the best lineups we’ve had,” Dow said. “Our goal when we book an act is to try and get someone that, if you are walking down the street and have not heard of them, you could still get captivated enough to stay and listen to the rest of the concert,” Main Street Director said in an interview with the Herald Democrat.
