You may know Townes Van Zandt's music well - who hasn't heard of "Pancho & Lefty?" Or you may not know it at all. Either way, I hope you will enjoy these highlights from tonight's show, along with samples of his original music. At the end is included a list of fantastic performers and tunes I was not able to capture with my camera. Some were my favorites from the show, so be sure to look up those videos and lyrics for more "happy" songs!

|Troy Underwood, "Fare Thee Well, Miss Carousel"|
|Martha Ann Brooks, "Two Hands"|
Martha Ann Brooks is not only a fine singer-songwriter, but I consider her a friend. She organized this concert and was said to have sent hundreds of emails. However she did it, it was a great success! Her musical contribution was the gospel song "Two Hands."
|Andrew Kelsay, "She Came and She Touched Me"|
|The group closed the show, performing "Harm's Swift Way," Townes Van Zandt's last song, |
which was recently recorded by Robert Plant and The Band of Joy
