Ham Jam House -Concert
Jon Emery will play a fine acoustic concert on Saturday,
May 7th, 2016, at 7:00 PM.
Jon Emery's Austin roots go back to the mid 1970s when his Missouri Valley
Boys Band settled here and became regulars at the Broken Spoke and at other
country music clubs of that era. Since then, in addition to fronting his own
bands, he has backed-up a wide variety of local and national acts.
Upon first hearing in 1976, Townsend Miller wrote, 'In my opinion, Jon Emery
is the finest country singer to hit Austin since Willie Nelson.' Emery's
singing and songwriting transcend any easy classification. His material is
drawn as much from rock-a-billy and blues styles as from country, and he is
widely recognized for branching out in different directions and taking risks.
More recently, he has turned his attention to a unique project for children
of all ages. His newest album, A Child's Garden of Music, creates songs out
of the 58 poems that make up Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of
Verses. He has performed this work in many schools and continues to devote
himself to entertaining and educating.
