Event Details

Frank Martin Gilligan grew up in NYC, but when he was 19 years old..…Texas happened.  Frank moved to Beaumont, Texas, in the late 70's,he immediately formed MASON DIXON, a Texas vocal group that enjoyed a pretty good run on the charts and on the road in the 1980's and 90's. They played with just about everyone who was big in Country music at the time and racked up 13 Billboard chart singles as well.


  • NINE NUMBER 1 RECORDS on the Independent Country Music Charts 1983 to 1987
  • CASHBOX Magazine “Independent Vocal Group of The Year 1987”
  • Played the 1985 “New Faces Show” in Nashville
  • Recorded a “Don't Mess With Texas” radio spot 1986
  • 13 nationally recognized songs on the BILLBOARD charts
  • Numerous appearances on The Nashville Network
  • # 5 CMT hit video with the group's signature song “WHEN KAREN COMES AROUND”
  • 1987 Christmas special with Charlie Daniels on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry
  • Enjoyed a long running relationship with sponsor JUSTIN BOOTS

 Mason Dixon's run lasted until 1993. Frank put music aside for some time. That might have been the end of it had it not been for a bout with cancer in 2009. Chemo ruined the nerves in his hands and feet and left him unable to play guitar. When he got his hands back, a lot of good songs came with it. Back to the stage and to the studio. Frank's been making some noise since he's been back!

We've had some memorable moments on The Bowery Stage.  At his last concert here in December 2015, Frank Martin Gilligan laid one on us -  and then topped it with another one! Maybe he do one of those again!

    The Bowery Stage is an intimate 88 seat listening room and musicians tell us that the acoustics provide some of the best sounds they've experienced.  We usually have two 45 minute sets with an intermission that provides an opportunity to meet the performer(s). You are welcome to bring a bottle of wine and we'll supply the glasses and uncorking for a small donation.  Small fruit plates and other refreshments are available.  Performers love us!

    • "Thank you SO very much for a really lovely gig and for making me so welcome -- it truly was one of the most pleasant and stress-free concert experiences I've ever had, and your audience is the best!  So vocal and enthusiastic and dang, they can sing!"  - Sarah McQuaid
    • "I plan to return to Winnsboro, perhaps to sing, or just to luxuriate in a town where there is little, if any, fear or rancor -- and where people are not only civil to everyone else, but downright accepting of one another. What a treat!" - Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul & Mary)
    • "This is a magical place, made possible by a stunning cadre of volunteers. Amazing settings are rare.  This is one of those." Hank Alrich
