Legends of Texas Music
12:45 pm - 1:30 pm
Friday, October 29, 2021

Photographer Tracy Anne Hart (Seeing Stevie Ray) spent nearly a decade capturing moments—both quiet and loud—in the life of legendary Texas-born guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan. Longtime music journalist Michael Corcoran profiles in Ghost Notes not only household names but also the far-too-little-knowns of the Texas music pantheon—for instance, a Black gay Houston couple who inspired the creation of rock ’n’ roll. Together Hart and Corcoran discuss these artists’ lives, their legacies, and their impact on music far beyond Texas.
