Summer Breeze 2019 ends on August 25 with a new concept: “Homegrown Volume I.” Norman has a very deep pool of musical talent. The Homegrown Volume I house band, hosted by Terry Ware and Kyle Reid, will fill the stage with singers, songwriters, and musicians from the long list of artists who call the Norman area their home. Music begins at 7:30 pm. Bring seating and refreshments to Lions Park, Flood and Symmes, and enjoy this free evening of outstanding local music.
Kyle Reid is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, producer, and musical technologist from Norman. You can find Kyle performing around the state solo or with his band, the Low Swinging Chariots. You might also see him playing pedal steel guitar for one of the many other talented singer/songwriters from around Oklahoma. Kyle also runs a recording studio where he records his own material, produces albums for other artists, and composes music for film and commercials.
Terry Ware has been a freelance guitarist backing a score of well known artists in his more recent career, He has performed at every Woody Guthrie Folk Festival since it began in 1998, and has led the house band and served as master of ceremonies for the Hoot for Huntington's since 2003. Early in his career Ware and Ray Wylie Hubbard together formed Ray Wylie Hubbard and the Cowboy Twinkies, a group which still enjoys cult status. The Cowboy Twinkies performed all over the country from 1973 to 1979, including a stint at the Troubador in Los Angeles and tours with Willie Nelson.
We are looking forward to an exciting parade of Norman and regional musical talent backed by these great Norman band leaders. Homegrown Volume I is a show you will not want to miss!
