Steve Fisher

Saturday April 26, 8PM

“Fisher comes from a long line of folk artists… who know a good tune when they write one and, better yet, know how to perform their tunes effortlessly and sincerely.”
-Dirty Linen

“...like light hitting the surface of a river…
this is music that takes its time.”

- Zassafras Music News

Steve Fisher has roots in East Texas and Oklahoma, and an Engineering Tech degree from Texas A&M. Based in Houston for a time, Steve pursued a career in engineering while continuing to write. Giving up his day job, Steve took to the road on a motorcycle ala Kerouac, in the process visiting all three coasts.

In the '80s he spent some time as the keyboard player for the Southern Cross band, then played three nights a week for three years at a restaurant in Longview. In 1988 he met Mary Melena who got him to the Kerrville Folk Festival, where he was a New Folk winner the next year. So we met him and fell in love with his music.

These days, Steve doesn't perform much – it's not as important to him as friends and family, fishing, contemplation and philosophy and many other worthy pursuits. Steve sees life from a different angle than most of us, and it affords him clear views to universal truths that often escape us in our busy lives. Exposure to these truths can help us find our own paths more clearly laid out, sometimes in surprising ways.

Whatever happens on this musical evening, I can guarantee a good insight or two, some entertaining and meaningful stories and a wonderful and enjoyable listen.

Concert Info

Acoustic Concert Tours is the Dallas area's premier house concert series. Concerts are brought to you by Paul Porter, Tom Noe, and Linda Silas. Since 1992 Tom and Linda have hosted over 250 concerts in the living room of their home outside Wylie, Texas. Directions are below, or you can go see a map.

Concerts are scheduled about once each month, with some breaks in the summer. Most are on Saturday evening at 8pm and a few are on Sunday afternoon at 4pm. We ask each person attending to make a donation of $15, which all goes to the performer. Drinks and snacks are available and there's a donation kitty. You can also bring whatever you like for yourself or to share. Reservations are normally not required but we suggest you arrive about 10-20 minutes before show time for a good seat.

We feature some of acoustic music's greatest singer-songwriters, from all over the US and beyond, in a serious listening room. We often call this "Hard Listening" music, because the lyrics have something to say and are sure to make you think. You will rarely hear it on the radio - it's just too good.

Directions:

"The Arms of Eden" located at 4030 N. Hwy 78, Wylie, Texas 75098.

That's about 4 miles east of where 544 crosses 78 and about 1.5 miles west of where 205 ends at 78. The driveway turns north off Hwy 78 between Platinum Storage and RD384, which is the road to Lake Lavon. Signs near the driveway on both sides of 78 say "Lavon Lake Dam Headquarters."  Numbers say "4030" on the mailbox, and when there's a show happening we put out a sign that says "House Concert."
