The Buddy Holly Center and Gypsy Jayne Continue Summer Showcase 2024

The Buddy Holly Center’s annual Summer Showcase Concert Series continues its season on Thursday, July 11 with Gypsy Jayne!

Gypsy Jayne is an energizing shot of pure passion. Earthy eclecticism (think old-school country, jazz, gospel, and rock, and you’re just beginning to scratch the surface) and sheer, contagious joy make every show an unforgettable experience. The unique band from Lubbock, Texas captivates audiences everywhere they play.

The group’s leader, Gypsy Jayne, is a soulful singer somewhat reminiscent of artists such as Janis Joplin, Susan Tedeschi, Grace Slick, and many more. Her intense rhythmic guitar style was honed playing folk in Colorado, jazz standards in Texas, and blues in the deep south of Alabama. Along the way, she developed an honest and humorous writing style that covers everything from personal loss and social injustice to love and life as a pirate. With her formidably talented bandmates, Gypsy Jayne brings folks together in a glorious celebration of music, art and life.

Concerts are every Thursday evening from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Meadows Courtyard, May 16 – August 15. Guests are welcome to bring outside food. However, outside beverages are not permitted after 5:15pm. Admission is FREE! Seating for this event is available on a first come, first serve basis. No reservations will be accommodated for this event. Chairs, picnic blankets, and like items will NOT be permitted inside the gates.

In addition to viewing the concerts, guests are encouraged to walk the Buddy Holly exhibitions and the Fine Arts Gallery during Summer Showcase hours with FREE admission.
