“Ameripolitan” is a unique type of American roots music in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson, and it’s spread throughout the honky-tonks and land by Texas musician Dale Watson. Enjoy a taste of his spectacular vocal stylings on April 19 for the last event of the Arts at the Amphitheatre series in Boerne. The show is free and goes from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Patrick Heath Public Library, located at 451 N. Main Street. Bring a chair or blanket to pad the stone seating. Be sure to check the weather also, as this venue is completely outdoors.

Dale Watson and his lively touring band, “The Lone Stars” (Don Pawlak, Mike Bernal, Chris Crepps), have a myriad of fans. Their music includes the genres Texas swing, honky-tonk, Outlaw Country, and rockabilly. With an unmistakable silver pompadour, you’ll recognize Watson immediately and can rest assured you’ll be in good hands. Not only does this musician travel more than 300 days a year, but he also supports local businesses. Watson took over ownership of two struggling Texas honky-tonks, the Little Longhorn Saloon in Austin and The Big T Roadhouse in St. Hedwigs. These places are great stops, try them out sometime!

If you didn’t know the Boerne library had an amphitheater, now is the perfect time to check it out! This rentable facility has attendance space for 200 with parking and restrooms. The Patrick Heath public library is open six days a week and houses a collection of approximately 48,000 items. Truly a community center, the library hosts many events for all ages every day. Keep a bookmark on their quite varied calendar. You can be sure Dale Watson will certainly bring out Honky Tonk Foodie, who’s still singing along to her 1998 album, Truckin’ Sessions!
