Ray Wylie Hubbard Concert to Benefit the Round Top Festival Institute
April 3
Join us for an exciting evening as Ray Wylie Hubbard performs on the grand stage of the Festival Concert Hall-one of the most beautiful and acoustically astounding concert halls in the world. 

In August 2011, Ray Wylie Hubbard came to Festival Hill to record what would become The Grifter's Hymnal album. The famed country-blues singer/songwriter/musician is returning to Festival Hill on Friday, April 3, 2015 to play an indoor benefit concert to raise funds for the Institute's 2015 Round Top Music Festival.

A friend of Festival Hill, Ray Wylie Hubbard became familiar with Round Top Festival Institute after discovering the extraordinary acoustics of the Edythe Bates Old Chapel. He spent a week at Festival Hill recording tracks for The Grifter's Hymnal album, released in 2012.   $35 per ticket, all ages, general seating. Click "View Prices and Purchase" to select the number of tickets and pay securely with a major credit card. No refunds. All sales final.
