The Magic Circle

By: Laurie Gallardo

The #LoveAustinMusicMonth celebrations continue at KUTX 98.9, with our friends at the City of Austin Music & Entertainment Division and the Austin Music Foundation, as we proudly show the love for Austin-based music artists. Today’s Austin Music Minute feature is about something quite magical, indeed, a wonderful gathering of like minds and new fans to bear witness to a crackling electricity like no other.

The torch was passed from Flipnotics to Radio Coffee and Beer, 4204 Manchaca Rd., to keep a lovely tradition alive and well. Monday Night Bluegrass Night, recent Austin Music Industry Award Winner for Best Musical Residency, is a gathering of world-class string musicians performing old bluegrass standards.

There’s a rotating cast each Monday night, and tonight includes the talents of Sophia Johnson, Katy Rose Cox, Trevor Smith and Dom Fisher (Wood and Wire), and Noah Jeffries. The music starts at 8 p.m. Very recommended.
