Event Description

An Original Show of Toe-Tapping Texas Tunes & the Fatherly Love That Inspired Them.
Elisa Brown, known internationally for her “eloquent voice,” & her “incredible vocal talents with a heartfelt take on life,” takes us back home to her Texas roots in Hoodwinked from Heaven – an original, down-home show dedicated to her late father Bill. Although he always supported her international talent in classical music, Bill used to jokingly call the classics “long-haired music” – preferring the works of Hank Williams or Patsy Cline. But when Elisa’s father began to slip further & further into heartbreaking cognitive decline, he asked her to write some country and Americana songs just for him. Hearing them helped refresh the memory of his & her Texas adventures - not to mention their colorful cast of family characters.
These heart-warming, knee-slapping tunes are a celebration of the deeply American music that kept a family alive with hope and laughter – & continue the legacy of a father's love.
