Evening Concert - Kennedy Outdoor Theater
author, and painter Bobby Bridger is a true
Renaissance Man. Bobby is known around here
mostly for writing the Kerrville Folk Festival
anthem "Heal in the Wisdom" which is the closing
song to each year's festival.
Even though Bobby
has been on the road for over three decades with his
trilogy of acclaimed one-man theatrical shows A
Ballad of the West, he has continued to make
appearances as a singer/songwriter across the
country. His original style, found mostly on his
earlier RCA records, landed him two gigs alongside
B.W. Stevenson and Asleep at the Wheel on the first
and third seasons of PBS's
Austin City Limits, not to mention an
entire chapter in Jan Reid's legendary book about
the Austin music scene,
The Improbable Rise of Redneck Rock.
Bridger also spent years working in Nashville with
Fred Carter, Jr. and produced several albums for RCA
records. Indeed, his career as a singer/songwriter
has only continued to blossom since then.
