Stevie Ray Vaughan
A Texas Story Podcast
Join the Bullock Museum in a first-ever Texas Story Podcast that discovers the music and legacy of Texas's own Stevie Ray Vaughan still thriving in the Live Music Capital of the World.
New episodes in this five-piece series air Thursdays through June 8, 2017.
Bullock Museum Web and Digital Media Manager Evan Windham begins a journey to discover Stevie Ray Vaughan’s iconic Texas blues music by talking with those who knew him, including Double Trouble band mates Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton.
Evan explores Stevie's influences and discovers that Texas developed its own style of the blues. Blues scholars, music writers, Double Trouble, and Stevie's older brother, Jimmie Vaughan, provide anecdotes and insights.
Jimmie Vaughan, Joe Nick Patoski, and Dr. Gary Hartman weave a tale of Austin in the 1970s, a musically liberal haven where club owners like Clifford Antone cultivated a blues revival.
