Saturday, July 23, 2011: Buddy Mondlock


Our next house concert is one that I have been looking forward to for the past couple of years. Buddy Mondlock writes songs that other songwriters like to put on their own albums. I’m stunned that we could even bring him here, but his booking agent worked it out for us.

When Buddy made his first trip to Texas, Guy Clark heard him singing under a tree at the Kerrville Folk Festival and liked it. So Guy went back to Nashville, opened the door and said, “listen to this kid, he’s good!”

David Wilcox recorded Buddy’s song “The Kid” on his first record for A&M. Buddy then did some writing with Garth Brooks. Janis Ian heard him singing at the Bluebird Cafe and asked him if he’d like to write with her. Their song “Amsterdam” got recorded by Joan Baez. Nanci Griffith asked Buddy to sing on a show she was taping for Irish television. She ended up liking that song so much that she recorded “Comin’ Down In the Rain” on her Grammy Award winning collection “Other Voices, Other Rooms.” Garth became a star and “Every Now and Then” ended up on his album “The Chase.” Then there was the Album “Everything Waits to be Noticed written and recorded with Art Garfunkel and Maia Sharp.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear one of the truly great songwriters and discover why singers like Linda Rondstadt and Emmylou Harris perform his songs. Seats for this show are $15 and we are limited to just 25 spots. Please make your reservations on our website at

We’ll put out some snacks and a little wine and lemonade, and you’re welcome to bring something to share or just for yourself. The show starts at 8PM and you are welcome to arrive as early as 7PM. This will be our last show of the summer, so please come out and join us!
