Longhorn Cavern — Simple Sounds

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife

If you’re in the mood for something different, how about attending a concert in Longhorn Cavern?

We will have a jazz piano concert in the cavern on October the twentieth; it’s a one time, rare, occasion.

Kaye Barlow is Operations Manager at the site, located nine miles southwest of Burnet, in the Texas Hill Country. A piano concert in a cavern is no easy feat.

We had a piano mover who approached me and said, “Have you ever had a piano in the cave?” And I said, “Well, no. It’s kind of hard to get one down there.” So he said, “If I move a piano into the cavern at my expense, will you have a piano player?” I said, “Yes.”

The rest is musical history. Jazz pianist Joseph Cordi will perform in Longhorn Cavern on Saturday, October twentieth. Reservations are highly recommended. Go to for complete concert details.

You probably will not have an opportunity to hear anything like this again.
