What's Strings in the Woods?

Henri Herbert is a piano-playing phenomenon, and definitely one of the most sought after boogie woogie blues piano men in the world. ... Born in France, and raised in the UK, at an early age he was drawn to records made by the piano-pounding pioneers Jerry Lee Lewis and Albert Ammons.

About your host Will Taylor

Nature and Music are my passion. I'm a lover of the outdoors and the magic of bringing people into nature for life-changing moments of connection and musical bliss. As an Austin Native and naturalist I know secret wild spots and stories about Austin that most don't. As an Austin Music Awards Winner, I've been a professional violinist and Austin music icon for over 20 years, jamming with folks such as Willie Nelson, Pearl Jam, Gary Clark Jr., Shawn Colvin, Shiny Ribs, Guy Forsyth, the Turtle Island String Quartet at Town Hall in New York City or you may have heard my music on the season finale of The Office. You can learn more about me at StringsAttached.org, StringsintheWoods.com and about my love of community outreach through StringsAttachedCares.org

What we’ll do

Picnics welcome.

I'll take you on the only fiddle accompanied nature and acoustic music immersion experience currently in Austin and at the conclusion you'll hear a concert with pianist Henri Herbert.

Reviews:

We had a very unique experience and ended up with a private date with the pair of hosts. We got to know each other and loved the led meditation and private concert. We loved the music, as we are music lovers and the knowledge of nature during the hike. We brought our little pups along and they were very understanding and accomodating, stopping for rest and water and even brought us to a spot they could take a quick dip to cool off in the water. We loved it and recommend to others. It was a nice date night trying something new and different. - Missy

This was a unique and special trip through time and nature, away from the hustle and bustle of automobiles and ever present screen proliferation. It is a very beautiful park in itself, but even better when you add the wonderful music, in a timeless retreat from now to any point in history with string music, you lose track of time and get closer to nature. Will and Karen were great guides, knowledgeable and thoughtful, and very talented. - Vernon

Will took us on a musical journey in nature that was incredible and therapeutic. We had a small group and hiked along a trail that was fairly leveled due to one of the hiker’s physical condition. Along the way Will made sure all of us were taken care of and having a good time. We were later joined by another amazing musician/cellist Charles. The only downside to this trip is that whenever I’m hiking now I miss Will and his gang of musicians. I’ve been spoiled. Next time I will bring my teenage kids. - Cassandra
