WCAF HEADLINER: SARA HICKMAN, SUNDAY 3-4 pm
In 2010, Sara became the Official State Musician of Texas. She uses her title to bring music programs into public schools and to help families learn to create together. While in Waco, Sara will share her music at several public schools before the festival begins.
A compilation album of Sara Hickman’s songs recorded by other amazing Texas musicians, including Willie Nelson, Marcia Ball, Shawn Colvin, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, Ruthie Foster and 25 other artists was recorded in 2011. This ground-breaking album The Best of Times, gives all proceeds to ‘Theatre Action Project’, a group dedicated to putting art, music and theater back into public schools.
Sara has also performed with her kid friendly trio, Family Time Rocks!, whose motto is “families that create together, do great together!” Sara released Absence of Blame, her most recent CD and put out an animated DVD for children entitled, Big Bird, Little Bird , winner of Dr. Toy’s award for Best Summer Vacation item.
