Odeon Presents Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis for Holiday
Wednesday, November 23, 2011 • Posted November 23, 2011

Arguably Texas Music’s most talented couple, Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison bring their popular Christmas concert to the Odeon Theater in Mason, Texas Friday December 2 at 7:00 P.M. Reservations are $15 and should be made in advance by calling Dennis or K Evans at 325 347 6781.Audiences in Austin, Texas have been treated to Bruce Robison’s and Kelly Willis’ Holiday Shows every Christmas time since 1999 making their annual Christmas season concerts a Texas Yuletide tradition.Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison have been domestic partners for more than 15 years but only recently decided to combine their music careers and form a duo. While it’s been something they’ve wanted to try for a couple of years they didn’t want to be considered a duo before they both made their own names and paths in their own careers.Robison has made his mark as both a writer of indelible smash #1 hits like “Wrapped” (George Strait), “Angry All The Time” (Tim McGraw & Faith Hill) and “Travelin’ Soldier” (Dixie Chicks) and an artist in his own right. Willis is a songwriter but is best known as a singer, blessed with one of the finest voices in all of country music. Kelly Willis, named by NPR as “alternative country’s golden goddess,” has everything: a flawless, classic country voice; a dreamy face; [and] a shrewd eye for catchy but complex material. Her voice appeared in the 1991 Ridley Scott-produced movie Thelma and Louise, singing “Little Honey.” Willis also had a part in Tim Robbins’ 1992 film Bob Roberts.It’s the songs that will make this a great show, but it’s their voices together that is the big unique thing about them. The Odeon Preservation Association (OPA) is honored to host Bruce and Kelly for this holiday season concert. OPA concerts are a continued effort to raise money for the Odeon theater to keep the doors open for movie entertainment as well as live music and theater. The OPA suggests that reservations be made early because they are expecting a sell-out. The OPA is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
