7:30 Ginny Mac - "L'Accordioniste"
"One evening with Ginny and you will have traveled to the West Texas plains, reminiscent of Bob Wills' soaring fiddle tunes, or perhaps to a sidewalk cafe in Paris beside a sprightly l'accordeoniste.
"Take her hand, don't hold back... she'll invite you to two-step or dance the tango under Texas skies..."
Hailing from Fort Worth, TX, Ginny Mac fronts a dynamic group that brings a fresh and exciting twist to vocal and instrumental stylings in the Country & Western Swing, Americana, Hot Jazz, and International music genres. Ginny is also a former member of the two-time Grammy Award winning group Brave Combo based in Denton, TX.
Ginny has recorded four albums; the newest release in Spring 2014, "On The Street Where You Live," is a collection of classic tunes and originals, featuring many of her friends and greatest musical heroes. The project includes Grammy Award winners Woody Paul and Joey Miskulin (Riders In The Sky), legendary Nashville fiddler Buddy Spicher, the great bassist Bob Moore (Roy Orbison), and several of Nashville's premier musicians. "It was an unforgettable experience," she says, "I was fortunate to learn so much and make music with these wonderful people."
