Concert at Millbend Coffee House featuring Byrd & Street

When: January 13th
at 7:30PM
Where: Millbend Coffee House
The Woodlands, TX

This impressive duo from Austin is known for their exceptional harmonies, solid musicianship, and first-class songwriting. Equipped with guitar, autoharp, glockenspiel, pianica, and a few percussion instruments, their talent has been recognized by the Kerrville Folk Festival and the Texas Music Awards. Their lyrics are poignant and heartfelt, and their music tends to be dynamic and up-beat.


Marci Rae, AKA Sweet Mama Cotton, will open the show.

When Marcy Rae went to a blues festival in Crosby, Texas, in 1992, she had no idea that she would return as Sweet Mama Cotton. But there was little doubt that she would be playing and singing the blues. Marcy, born and raised in the chilly outpost of Fargo, North Dakota, has spent her musical career preparing to play the blues. Her many years of piano training and performing in bands from California to Israel brought her to Texas, home of some of the hottest blues in the world.

Children’s Art Project for the International Day of Peace

For the third year, the Peace and Justice Network of Montgomery County, Inc. is organizing a children’s art project for the International Day of Peace. Groups of children from various organizations and churches in the county are making art pieces with peace as the theme.

The art will be displayed in several community locations including the South County, Mitchell, and Conroe public libraries, the Conroe Chamber of Commerce office, the South County Community Center, and the South County and Conroe YMCAs. Additionally, art will be exhibited in the churches and other facilities where children created it including the Oscar Johnson Community Center, the Congregation Beth Shalom in the Woodlands, the Al-Ansaar Mosque, Trinity Episcopal Church, and Children’s Books on Wheels.

Every year since 1981 the United Nations General Assembly declares a day of peace for strengthening of the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. It was decided in 2001 that September 21 should be observed as a day of ceasefire and non-violence.

The theme for this year is “Together for Peace – Respect, Safety, & Dignity for All.” Though we certainly want peace between Eastern and Western nations, we also want the various factions within our own country to find ways to co-exist peacefully.

All nations are invited to honor a cease fire during the day and to focus on education and public awareness on matters related to peace.
