About the Event
About Jeff Plankenhorn
Chances are that you’ve heard multi-instrumentalist Jeff Plankenhorn supporting Ray Wylie Hubbard, Joe Ely, or countless other Texas roots musicians. While "Plank" is arguably one of the busiest and most highly regarded guitar players on the Austin music scene, the last several years he has carved out more time for his own solo career ever since issuing his breakout second studio set, 2016’s "SoulSlide" through the latest releaseof the album "Sleeping Dogs" on Spike Steel Records in 2018.
The origins of Plankenhorn’s musical journey share a note with so many others…small town America, a church choir, a deep sense of community and ministering to others through his gift of music. It was love at first sight for Plank, this giving and sharing through music, a love that has only deepened over the years.
Born in Ohio and educated in Michigan, his older brother John had a significant role in Plankenhorn’s evolution as a musician. John encouraged him to experiment with all types of music and, above all else, just keep playing. John gave Jeff his first guitar at the age of ten, and stringed instruments quickly became his passion. While he certainly mastered traditional styles of playing the acoustic and electric guitar, his true love became the slide or steel guitar, and decided to take shot at the life of a professional musician.
Advanced tickets $17; $22 the day of the show (includes taxes & fees)
