Ralph White at Fred's Texas Cafe/Smoke & Mirrors Gallery

Austin multi-instrumentalist Ralph White has been playing shows in Fort Worth on a pretty regular basis, and he does so again this Thursday at Fred's Texas Cafe, but follows it up with a Dallas gig at Smoke & Mirrors Gallery, with D.H. Phillips and Warren Jackson Hearne. White is still one of my favorite Texas musicians; I wrote a piece on him years ago, and called him the human embodiment of the "I'd Rather Be Fishing" bumper sticker. I meant it as a compliment, as White's old-school folk takes its time seeping into your veins, and his voice remains one of the few that consistently bring me to tears.
