Live music

Phillpsburg, New Jersey native Pentley Holmes stopped by High Plains Morning at HPPR Studios—Amarillo to play a live, in-studio set before his Amarillo debut, May 15th at 7pm at FireSongs at Fire Slice Pizzaria.

A huge thank you to Amarillo College's Suzuki Guitar Ensemble for cramming into the HPPR Studio in Amarillo for an impressive show of skill and talent. 

Instructor Homero Campos's Beginning Guitar Ensemble includes: David Schneider (9); Lucy Schneider (9); Will Albracht (8); Bennett Amos (8); Jonathan Smith (8); and Andrew Davis (9). 

EXCITING NEWS! This Tuesday night in Amarillo, HPPR's listening area has Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, with folk icon Richard Thompson, LIVE IN CONCERT! And right now on High Plains Morning, you can get TWO FREE TICKETS!

Let's keep the folk music going in 2018!

Our next show features two gifted singer-songwriters, together and live in concert. Caroline Cotter is a globetrotting polymath yogi from Rhode Island. Michael Howard is a grown-up punk rocker from Anchorage, Alaska. In other words, there's no way this show isn't going to be a BLAST.

HPPR thanks FolkWest for their hard work making the Four Corners Folk Festival in Pagosa Springs, CO an enchanting, surreal weekend with a phenomenal lineup.

Here are a few flashes of the fest! 

I woke up feeling good, but now I’m feeling even better. This morning, Sophia Landis & Jason Surratt of the folk duo Honeywise stopped by HPPR-Amarillo for a live, in-studio set on High Plains Morning. They’re playing tonight at Leftwoods in Amarillo at 10pm.

Who wants to be "High Plains Famous?" Stop by HPPR's booth at Create! on Saturday, Aug. 19th from 11a - 3p. We'll be enlisting kids to RECORD THEIR VOICE to support public radio across the High Plains! PLUS: a folk star photo booth, buttons, invitations for the "HPPR 3-Day Challenge" and more!

"As an artist, my goal is to remind everyone that we’re all here to take care of each other. As an entertainer, my job is to make sure we all have a good time doing it.”      

—Mudbone  

Today on High Plains Morning, HPPR listeners had the pleasure of a pre-lunch serenade and brief roots music history lesson from Mudbone.

Today on High Plains Morning, we had Scott Stine live in the studio to talk about the Bad Magik Musik Fest that takes over Sam Houston Park this SATURDAY from noon to 9p. It's famliy-friendly, dog-welcoming, and features community-minded local vendors, artists, food, and fun.

High Plains Morning was thrilled to welcome guitar instructor Homero Campos of Amarillo College and his students to play LIVE in the studio. 

First, we lined up the Suzuki Guitar Ensemble, with student ranging from age 8 to 16. These kids learn to play by ear, then they learn to read music. It's called the "mother tongue" approach, treating the music like a new language.

The students played three tunes: 

Meadow Minuet by Frank Longay

All my Loving by The Beatles

High Plains Public Radio is thrilled to present THREE AMAZING FOLK MUSICIANS, live at the HPPR Studio - Amarillo (104 SW 6th Ave., Basement).

Some people just don't know when to quit -- and for that, HPPR is thankful.

With more than 100 head of grass-fed cattle on his family farm in Buffalo, Missouri, you'd think Lyal Strickland wouldn't be tooling around the country with his guitar. However, you'd be incorrect. This guy loves pushing the logical boundaries of how much HARD WORK a human can handle, and then handle it all, he does.
