My review of Texas Guitar Women posts to Elmore magazine

11 Mar

Elmore Magazine | Texas Guitar WomenIt felt like a hen party with chick pickers at Austin’s One2One Bar Feb. 19 as friends of five-time Grammy award winning steel guitar player Cindy Cashdollar sent her off in style to her hometown of Woodstock, NY. Grand dames Marcia Ball and Rosie Flores formed a sisterhood for one night with the Texas Guitar Women, including Cashdollar, Shelley King, Carolyn Wonderland, Sarah Brown, and Lisa Pankratz.

Fans crowded the length of the bar’s platform stage inside the strip shopping center with little wing room to hear the girls’ stories, songs and tequila toasts.

Flores, eternally youthful with a shock of black hair, stole the show with her playful romp, “Run Chicken Run.”

Ball rocked the house as she wailed out her repertoire of original songs and played keyboards with a Jerry Lee Lewis-like frenzy.

Guitar goddess, Wonderland, sang a series of Janis Joplin-like bluesy rock ballads while fanning her flaming long auburn red hair.

King grooved out on the title track from her Building a Fire CD, released last August on the Lemonade Records label.

Brown also delighted fans with a vocal performance reminiscent of her 1996 Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’ solo CD as she completed the rhythm section with Pankratz on drums.

    We sure do have some talented guitar women here in Austin! Glad to see ’em get the press they deserve. And nobody plays the piano like Marcia Ball.
