Steve Brooks with John Guedry Opening (Oct. 15th)

Steve Brooks with John Guedry Opening
Saturday, September 17th at 7pm
Thoreau Woods Coffeehouse 
144 E. Mosley Lane, 
Huntsville TX  77340. 

Suggested donations: $10.00 for general admission and $5.00 for seniors and students.

On Saturday, October 15th, John Guedry will be opening for Steve Brooks at the Thoreau Woods Coffeehouse. I am very excited about this event, because not only are both of these people amazing performers, but John Guedry is also my best friend's father. That means I am a biased source when I say that his best live performance was the beautiful song he performed at his daughter's wedding, but I am also a reliable source when I say that this show will be one of John Guedry's last live performances.

Steve Brooks:
Steve Brooks is a songwriter’s songwriter. Ask Americana acts like Slaid Cleaves, Albert & Gage and The Flyin’ As – each of whom performed songs cowritten with Steve at this year’s Kerrville Folk Fest. Back home in Austin, he's known for writing a song-a-week for Jim Hightower’s nationally-syndicated radio show and being six-time winner of the O.Henry Pun-Off. More than 70 radio stations have spun "Chasing Grace," his first studio album in a decade, produced by Chris Gage. Equally gifted at high poetry and low comedy, Stave Magazine calls him, “One of the state’s top lyricists…He is simply the most clever man you'll hear with a guitar.” You can sample his songs at

John Guedry is a songwriter/musician from SE Texas (now living in the Huntsville, Texas area) who started writing songs during the 1970's. He has played small venues (Coffee Houses, Folk Festivals, etc.), with groups and solo, off & on for the last thirty plus years.A few years ago, with help from friends, John created a recording of some of the songs he has written during this time. This recording includes both acoustic and electric versions of songs that range in style from Folk and Folk Rock to Country John's beginnings in music started in 1966, when he began playing 5-string banjo. During the next 10 years he added guitar, mandolin, and fiddle to his repertoire. In recent years, John has been playing mostly guitar, which he uses as a platform for his lyrics of songs about the many aspects of our life's journey.
