    Center Stage Series: Lee Roy Parnell – Saturday, August 31 @ 7:30pm at the Calumet Theatre. Presented by Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground.
    Leroy Parnell, a multiple Grammy Award nominee, is part of a long line of Texas roots-music eclectics and is among the elite few who can be identified as a triple threat. An ace guitarist who has received widespread acclaim as a guitar slinger and one of the world's premier slide players, as well as a distinctive singer, and hit songwriter, his music runs the gamut of diversity. Combining the influences of Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House Rock, Southern Boogie, Texas Swing, Country, and Gospel, Parnell's sound defies conventional classification. His long list of hits include What Kind of Fools Do You Think I Am, Tender Moment, Love Without Mercy, On The Road, I'm Holding My Own, Heart's Desire, & When A Woman Loves A Man.

    During his storied career, Parnell has toured/collaborated with many music legends including The Allman Brothers Band, Merle Haggard, Delbert McClinton, and Bonnie Raitt. In 2011, Parnell was presented with his most cherished honor: being inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame, joining the likes of such talented composers as Kris Kristofferson, Rodney Crowell, JD Souther, Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, and others.

    Parnell's current record, the critically-acclaimed Stax- and Muscle-Shoals-inspired Midnight Believer, made All Music's "Best of 2017 Favorite Blues Albums" list and received rave reviews from the likes of Grammy winners Keb' Mo', Rodney Crowell, & Vintage Guitar.
