Two amazing acts - one stage - one unforgettable night! Get ready for an amazing night of great Western Swing music at the historic Cactus Theater!
Known for his 20+ years playing fiddle with the legendary group Asleep at the Wheel, the extraordinary Jason Roberts fronts his own group these days - continuing the great traditions of the masters and forging new musical territory in the process. A favorite performer of authentic Texas dancehall music and traditional classic country in his many travels across the Southwest, Jason is also closely involved with the annual Bob Wills Days events and heads up the entertainment lineup each year in Turkey, Texas, the hometown of the beloved western swing pioneer. The charismatic Jason Roberts is a treasure to the western swing community and has a loyal and devoted following that embraces each new recording and personal appearance that he makes.
Special guest Kristyn Harris of McKinney, Texas, is a musical powerhouse. She is the current reigning 2-time Western Music Association Entertainer of the Year and the youngest person to ever receive this honor. Her singing is complimented on stage by her swing guitar playing, yodeling, songwriting and energetic stage presence. Now 23, Kristyn tours across the U.S. and internationally. When she’s not playing music, her passions find her trick riding, training horses and working cattle. Her inspiration comes from these experiences as well as vintage musical genres, and a joy in playing music. Red Steagall says, "Kristyn Harris is one of the greatest talents that I have ever heard..."
