Walt Wilkins

Doors 3:00pm • Music 7:00pm

Singer-Songwriter Extraordinaire

After a 3 year break from touring on the East coast, arguably one of America’s great songwriters brings his stories and songs back to Abilene Bar and Lounge. Since he was last on the East coast, Wilkins has put forth 3 new records. (Prolici is a word often used accurately to discuss the native Texan troubadour). “Streetlight,” perhaps his most poignant solo effort to date with all new songs….”Watch It Shine,” a harmonic masterpiece with his Texas supergroup, The Mystiqueros…and most recently, “Live at the Rock Room: Walt Wilkins & Kevin Welch,” a touching and overdue collaboration from 2 master storytellers, recorded over 2 nights in Austin. His show at Abilene will give old fans and new friends a chance to see and hear this Texas legend in an intimate setting as comfortable as that favorite old pair of jeans.

Tickets: $12 advance, $15 day of show, available now at Abilene and online at
