Bob Livingston Album Release Party at Fort Worth Live at Red Goose Saloon
Brentney Hamilton Recommends
Bob Livingston's 9th solo album was one of the happiest surprises of 2017 -- which was when superfans were first able to pre-order a small number of pre-release copies. Now, the celebrated singer-songwriter-storyteller-road dog is pushing out 'Up the Flatland Stairs' to a wider audience with a series of album release parties. It's an eclectic collection featuring folk country, bluegrass, Texas swing, '60s-style psychedelia and even a cowboy campfire song send up of working mothers. Livingston left no stone unturned in this follow-up to his previous effort, which was named the Texas Music Association's Album of the Year in 2011. There's charming lyricism, musical acrobatics (from underrated Guitar Ninja Bradley Kopp) and sincere optimism from a Texas music legend.
