Austin, TX (March 13, 2014)- Lou Ann Barton will perform tonight at the legendary South By San Jose at San Jose Hotel on South Congress. The event has become a must-see during SXSW, gaining a reputation for stellar musical line-ups all free of charge. Lou Ann is credited as one of the iconic characters that has shaped Austin’s eclectic musical landscape. Next Tuesday, March 18th, Lou Ann will release the album Lou Ann Barton-The Best!, embodying why she garnered this title.
Jimmie Vaughan’s The Fabulous Thunderbirds appear on the first five tracks, blending the TX Roots and Blues sound that has become world famous. Her musical collaboration with the Vaughan brothers began with TX Blues legend, Stevie Ray Vaughan as an original member of Stevie’s Triple Threat Revue band. The album includes Lou Ann Barton classics as well as 7 unreleased tracks and a hidden gem at the end of the track list. Etta James once spoke out saying, “when they write the bible about the best blues singers- man or woman, young or old, black or white- Lou Ann Barton better have her own chapter.”
