The B.F. and Mary Payne Fund for the Preservation of Texas Culture presented the E-Flat Porch Band on Thursday, March 28.

Band members, Duane Brown and Rudy Littrell, played music from many Texas musicians who have played an important role in influencing music trends across the country. Their “Porch Music” is performed on acoustic instruments and is influenced by Country Blues, Texas folk music, Jazz and swing standards, and Depression Era country songwriters.
