The Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series is back at Ashley Pond at 7 p.m. Friday with the Austin, Texas country/country rock band, James Hyland and the Joint Chiefs. The show is part of the weekend’s LA County Fair and Rodeo. The show is free and bring your lawn chairs.
The Austin Chronicle says “if there’s a betting pool for the next big singer/songwriter in Austin, James Hyland floats to the top.”
Hyland was a founding member and main singer of the South Austin Jug Band, a group that played here many times in the late ‘90s and` ‘00s until they split up.
According to concert promoter Russ Gordon, the first time they played here, they were on their way to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival where they won for “Best New Band.”
Hyland has mostly been an Americana or folk-rock singer. He has a hypnotic power and is a very captivating performer. He says his early musical influences were Willie Nelson, Toni Price, Otis Redding, Steve Earle, Robert Earle Keen, Bob Dylan, the late JJ Cale and Beck He always had a great traditional country music voice. I told him to put out a country album 10 years ago. It looks many others must have suggested the same because his soon to be released album is Texas country.
