Big Cedar Fever plays Snowbird Series
Local nonprofit Own Your Own Universe (OYOU) is excited to welcome Georgia Parker & Big Cedar Fever, Feb. 7, to Saint Mark's Episcopal Church in San Marcos.
Big Cedar Fever is a string swing band out of Central Texas that specializes in Western swing and jazz. Three part harmonies and tight musical arrangements draw listeners in, only to be taken away by the classic style and lyrics that recall another time and place.
Formed in January of 2018, the trio includes Georgia Parker on jazz-box guitar, Ian Lee on fiddle and Nick Lochman on the upright bass. With all three sharing vocal duties and trading instrumental solos, this is a group whose constant harmony is right up there with their prowess as a dance band.
Georgia Parker's deep catalog of classic songs, knowledge of the writers behind them and original material can entertain for hours. Her writing style is influenced by many greats such as Bob Wills, Willie Nelson and Peggy Lee, but none have had a greater influence than that of fellow Texan, Cindy Walker. Parker’s performances include several hits written by Walker such as, “Bubbles in My Beer,” “I Hear You Talkin” and “It’s All Your Fault.”
Before the concert, there will be an open buffet of queso and chips courtesy of Palmer's Restaurant. Thundercloud Subs will provide a variety of sub sandwiches and Live Oak Living in Martindale will provide cookies and brownies.
The doors open at 5:30 p.m. and music starts at 7. There will be a Q & A between the artist and the audience at 8 p.m. This is a free and family friendly event. Saint Mark's Episcopal Church is also completely accessible for those with mobility issues.
