Walt Wilkins Performs at the Odeon in Mason
Wednesday, January 4, 2012 • Posted January 4, 2012

The Odeon Preservation Association starts off the New Year with a great show. Walt Wilkins has been called a prince, a poet, a genius, brilliant and even a Texas treasure. One thing is for certain. He is one of the most respected and talented songwriters in Texas. I’ve been listening to Walt for years now and even in concert it’s as though your sittin’ on the front porch with a friend and listening to him tell stories about friends, family, travel and life...each song being an intimate detail of life’s experiences. Walt will bring those stories to the Odeon Theater stage in a special performance Saturday January 21 at 7:00 PM. Reservations are $15 per person and should be made in advance.Walt’s songs have been recorded by the likes of Ricky Skaggs, Pat Green, Brandon Rhyder, Ty Herndon, Cory Morrow and Kevin Welch. More recently Walt’s song Trains I Missed, as recorded by Balsam Range was recognized as Song Of The Year at the International Bluegrass Music Awards held at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. What makes this award important and unique is that the awards are determined by the recipient’s peers and colleagues in the bluegrass music industry. As a writer, performer and producer Walt Wilkins will continue to be a great influence to the Texas music scene. One more thing...he’s just a great guy. For reservations to the Walt Wilkins show contact Dennis or Kay Evans at 325 347 6781. The Odeon Preservation Association (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 is a 501c3 non-profit organization. For more information check www.theodeontheater.com
