The 18th annual Texas Heritage Music Day will feature more than 50 performers and Texas Heritage Music Day demonstrations from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 26 on the Schreiner University campus.

A cheese and wine reception with Texas Public Radio will be hosted at 6:30 p.m. before Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines perform at a free community concert sponsored by Toyota of Boerne at 7:30 p.m. in the Floyd and Kathleen Cailloux Student Activities Center.

Special additions to the 2014 Music Day include the return of Doug Baum and the Camel Corps, a tribute to Jimmie Rodgers and the Schreiner choir. The list of more than 50 performers includes Slim Ritchey and Jitterbug Vipers, George Ensle, Fritz Morquecho, Thom Joy Poet, with demonstrations by Billy Carter and the Dallas Arms Collectors (saddles and trappings of the West). Tony Galluci and Clifton Fifer return, along with Saddle Pals, Dale Freiderich and Jesus Train and 4 Proches from Fredericksburg.

The Texas Heritage Music Day brings students and the community together to experience the power of stories and songs. Combined attendance since 1997 exceeds 35,000 students, teachers and the community. This vision continues throughout the remainder of the school year through THMF's The Bard Project (a unique in-school performance/ outreach program) that presents songwriters, performers, storytellers, and demonstrations in area schools, classrooms, and organizations that work with kids at risk. Visit texasheritagemusic.org for more information on these programs and how to donate.

Schools in Kerr and all contiguous counties are invited to contact Kathleen Hudson at 792-1945 or kat@texasheritagemusic.org to request transportation assistance to attend THMD. Requests are fulfilled in the order they are received, so please call soon.
