History of Texas Music

The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum has a special exhibit – Texas Music Roadtrip – that is on display until October 14, 2012.  As noted on the Museum website, the Lone Star State is a cultural crossroads with a western persona, southern traditions, and a long history of immigration.  Native Americans, Mexican Americans, African Americans, Anglos, Germans, Poles, Czechs, French-speaking blacks and whites, and numerous other ethnic groups have settled the state over the years, each with influences that resonate in the larger musical symphony of the Southwest. 

Persons interested in the vast musical heritage of the Lone Star State would do well to visit this exhibit.

Additional information about this wonderful exhibit may be found at:

Admission to the Museum’s exhibits, including Texas Music Roadtrip, is $9 for adults; $8 for college students (with valid ID); $7 for seniors/military (with valid ID); $6 for youth ages 4-17, free for ages 3 and under.  The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum is located at 1800 North Congress Avenue at the corner of Martin Luther King, Jr., Boulevard in Austin.  For more information, call (512) 936-4649.  The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum hours of operation are Monday through Saturday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and on Sunday from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
