The annual Texas Songwriters Association and Austin Songwriters Group Symposium, which runs Wednesday through Sunday at the Holiday Inn Midtown, this year includes a new Music Legends Hall of Fame show on Thursday that’s open to the public.
The event begins at 8 p.m. and includes a performance by the Lost Austin Band, an assemblage of luminaries from the city’s 1970s progressive-country heyday playing favorites from that era. Tickets are $15 via the Austin Songwriters Group website or at the door.
The inaugural class of inductees includes a mix of both artists and industry figures. The full list, in alphabetical order: Roger Allen, Patterson Barrett, Bill Browder, Stephen Doster, Steven Fromholz, Ernie Gammage, Craig Hillis, Kathleen Hudson, Bob Livingston, Rich Minus, David Moerbe, Scott Newton, Gary P Nunn, Shake Russell and Mike Tolleson.
