Leaves Fall, and Texas Songwriters in the Round prepare to hibernate for the holidays after a last showcase October 20th. They have been appearing in Mason Texas at the Sandstone Cellars Winery since March of 2011 with a new show each month highlighting a successful Texas songwriter. Organizers are excited about this last show of the season, featuring John Arthur Martinez. At the end of the TSR showcases is another year of great music, fun times, new friends, donations and fine wine. Mason Texas is famous for its unique style and laid back artistic spirit. The home of many creative folks, this corner of the hill country brings forth the best in local and state-wide talent and has been a great incubator for songwriting and networking.The community of Mason has also chimed in by supporting tee-shirts that were sold to raise money for Chemo Sabe the Charity of TSR. Thru the year over $1500 was raised to go towards supporting their non-profit programming. Chemo Sabe went on a trip to MD Anderson in September attending a fundraiser for the Melanoma Foundation, where they gathered some Houston volunteers together to make music for relaxation during a skin screening clinic. They were a smash hit and have been asked back for 2012! The next trip abroad is to Dallas to the Sons of Herman Hall where Chemo Sabe is the featured music and music related non- profit for TIME, the Independent Music Expo. The musicians who give so much of their time are awesome and have gone beyond the call of duty to donate their time and talent both to Mason Texas and to Chemo Sabe. Musicians who have donated their time are, Steve Brooks, Daniel Makins, Brenda Freed, David Byboth, Karen Abrahams, Daryl and Petra Watson, Carl De Cuir, Misha ben David, Jeffrey White, Brendan Weatherman, Jim Brown, John Peavy, Tina Hoffman and John Arthur Martinez. These are just a few!Jerialice, founder of TSR has remarked that the merchants of Mason County have made her job so much fun and looks forward to next year starting in March.
