Great music! Wonderful musicians, great volunteers and a great cause. Proceeds from the Susanna's Kitchen concerts go to help people in our community who are in need, through Barnabas Connection, Operation Good Shepherd, and other Wimberley-area nonprofits, plus scholarships for pre-schoolers at Bright Beginnings.
Great food! Sugar Shack Bakery pies, tamales, pizza, coffee, and soft drinks available. Doors open by 7:00 pm. Concerts start at 7:30 pm and are held in the Fellowship Hall at Wimberley United Methodist Church.
Great Cause! We all benefit – those who come to hear the best music in Wimberley, those who have a great time volunteering their talents to produce the concerts, and the people who are helped by our donations. Mark your calendars for every Third Thursday year round.
Tickets are sold ONLY AT THE DOOR. Tickets range in price from $20-$25 depending on the musician. Cash and checks are currently accepted. Students under 18 are $5. Concerts are not appropriate for small children, as there is no childcare.
To ensure a good seat, and as some concerts sell out, come early! Ticket sales begin by 6:30 pm. Arrival between 6:30 pm and 6:45 pm is suggested, especially for very popular musicians. Come early, enjoy dinner with us and enjoy the concert experience in a small, intimate environment.

“Bob Livingston tugged his cowboy hat, stuffed his jeans into his boots, hooked on his guitar strap and came onstage in Madras, India. “I’m here to play country music,” he said to the audience.
What country? That’s the question.”
Mike Zwerin – International Herald Tribune
Singer-songwriter BOB LIVINGSTON has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life even though he's spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful and rambunctious musicians in Texas. As a member of Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band, Livingston toured and recorded with such musical visionaries as Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey, Ray Wylie Hubbard and many more. Livingston played an integral role in helping to create the music that first earned Austin the designation of “Live Music Capital of the World” and helps explain why he was recently inducted into “West Texas Walk Of Fame October, 2018.
Livingston has seen a lot of the world since growing up in musically fertile West Texas. Hailing originally from San Antonio, he moved to Lubbock as a boy where his interests turned more 'Cosmic' than 'Cowboy' and prompted him to delve into the music and mysteries of many cultures. Traveling since the 80’s as a Music Ambassador for the US State Department, Livingston has taken Texas music as far afield as India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Africa, Vietnam and the Middle East demonstrating again and again the unique power that music has to build bridges between peoples of the world. As Livingston says, 'When all else fails, music prevails'. These tours earned him the honor of being appointed, “Ambassador of Goodwill,” by the State of Texas and “Austin’s International Music Ambassador,” by the City of Austin.
This world-traveled view was reflected in Livingston's 2004 CD, Mahatma Gandhi & Sitting Bull, a romp through juxtapositions of east and west. Gypsy Alibi, defined a new musical direction for Bob. Released in 2011 on New Wilderness Records, 'Gypsy Alibi' won "Album of the Year" at the Texas Music Awards 2011. His new album, Up The Flatland Stairs, was released in 2018 and has had truly great success on the singer-songwriter/folk stations in the US, Canada and abroad. Livingston was the cover of Canadian Cashbox Magazine.
These days, Livingston is a busy man. While playing over 150 shows a year, he is also managing to write a book for Texas Tech Press, play with a multi-cultural band from Texas and India called Cowboys & Indians, and another band called the Lost Austin Band. And he's working on a documentary film of his exploits on the far world's roads with the US State Department.
In a live performance with Bob Livingston, one finds a veteran singer-songwriter and a master storyteller who captures his audience from the first notes played. It's an irresistible invitation to travel down the cosmic musical highways and rutted back country roads where his rambles have taken him over the years. “What country? That’s the question.”
