The Lone Star Kids are students from KR’s hometown of Electra, Texas and it will be the 16th year that they have come to the Alamo and Capitol to perform the music from KR’s CD “Fathers of Texas”, the story of the Texas Revolution. They practice the music all year, bring their own props, make their own costumes, and raise the funds to charter buses to make the trip. They will be performing in the courtyard of the Alamo from 2:30 to 3:30 on Thursday, March 1st and in the Rotunda of the Capitol on Friday, March 2nd at 11:00 a.m. A wonderful show!
