About Strings Attached

With the close of the seventh Strings Attached season with last Saturday's kickbutt Stevie Wonder tribute, its time to look forward to the beginning of our 8th season.

Want to help Will Taylor and the musicians of Strings Attached continue to create world-class concerts right here in Austin? The kind you really can't find anywhere else.

We are beginning a massive Season Ticket drive with this newsletter today and need your support in the form of a Season Ticket purchase or as a volunteer on one of our phone banks.

Strings Attached does some of the most original, rehearsed, orchestrated work of any musical institution in Austin. Think about anyone else doing what we do in Austin? or anywhere else? If so, I'd sure like to know.

Don't you think Strings Attached deserves the support to continue bringing its gifts to bear? Just as public radio stations ask several times a year, we are now coming to you to say we need your help.

Wonder what we've done in the past couple of years?
We've presented original shows like:

Songs of Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Four complete Beatles Albums, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel, Original Music of Strings Attached, Patti Griffin, and the Stevie Wonder Tribute.

This year we'll be presenting a powerful retrospective of the last 7 years of shows. Read about them here.

Strings Attached Season 8

Buy Season Tickets Here

Season Eight of the Strings Attached series has been announced.

This year we're going to change things up a bit.
Instead of three shows on three nights, we're
only going to do one or two shows on Saturday
and one Sunday matinee at the Uptown Theater
Marble Falls. For the most part the shows this
season will be encore performances of shows from
previous seasons—a best of Strings Attached, if you will.
One show will be determined by fan input, but more about that later.

The venue has also changed. This year we will be performing
at Momo's and Threadgills. The first three shows of the season
will be at Momo's. Because of its smaller size there will be an
early and late show for those concerts. The remaining shows
will be at Threadgill's and will have only one performance
(unless we sell out, in which case we may add a second performance).
[The Sunday matinee is not part of the season tickets.

Tickets for those performance can be obtained from]
