“With his beatific smile and twinkling bright eyes, Willie Nelson looks like the most serene and centered man on the planet. When he’s wearing a Stetson hat or a wide red bandana, he brings to mind a sort of Western Santa Claus, someone you’d trust to slide down your chimney and come into your house with a sack full of cap guns, singing a cowboy tune.” —Bill DeYoung
 
Join us for an hour of music and lunchtime munchies as we reflect on the mystical lyrics and poetry of Willie Nelson, Texas’ very own living mystic. Bill DeYoung writes: “There has never been a singer like Willie Nelson. He’s a genre-jumper. The rich, mellow timbre of his voice, going tip–toe over the kind of casual jazz phrasing Frank Sinatra used to be able to do in his sleep, gives Nelson the option of singing virtually any style of music and giving it his distinctive stamp. He transcends country music; he transcends music, period. It’s no wonder Willie Nelson is considered an American Folk Hero. In the best American tradition, he is tireless and his talent is timeless.” Well, hello there … let’s celebrate Texas mysticism together in honor of Willie’s 84th birthday on April 29th.
