"GINNY MAC and friends" tickets click here

April 23, 2021. 8:45pm.

The Dye Room, The Cotton Mill.

At 8:45pm the music moves outside to the Dye-room for singer/songwriter GINNY MAC's unique accordion AMERICANA/ WESTERN SWING sound, as she invites you to two-step under the Texas sky.

“One evening with Ginny and you will have traveled to the West Texas plains, reminiscent of Bob Wills' soaring fiddle tunes, or perhaps to a sidewalk cafe in Paris beside a sprightly l’accordeoniste. Take her hand, don't hold back...she’ll invite you to two-step or dance the tango under Texas skies...”

Hailing from Fort Worth, TX, Ginny Mac fronts a dynamic group that brings a fresh and exciting twist to vocal and instrumental stylings in the Country & Western Swing, Americana, Hot Jazz, and International music genres. Ginny is also a former member of the two-time Grammy Award winning group Brave Combo based in Denton, TX. She endorses Menghini s.r.l. Scandalli Accordions based in Castelfidardo, Italy.

April 24, 2021 4:30 pm

The Whiskey Shakers is a 90-minute masterclass in the art of making whiskey cocktails where you’ll try your hand at three different cocktails - shaken and stirred. We’ll provide you with the knowledge and professional tools to make your own cocktails - a Whiskey Sour, Old Fashioned and High Ball to be precise - in a really cool private Cotton Mill Bar. A little history is thrown in for storytelling measure, and best of all, you get to enjoy your very own whiskey cocktail creations before a heading over to enjoy a concert.

FESTIVAL CONCEPT "HINGES'


		Music@Mill TEXAS CELLOS.  Great Music | Socially Distanced | Factory Space image

In this life beauty is passing. The flower in spring, the moment in a musical phrase, the person who truly sees you. They are beautiful because they will soon be gone yet awake a memory of what I truly desired all along. The fragile nature of these beautiful moments I must say, is connected to us knowing consciously or subconsciously that they are fleeting, allowing us to briefly connect and quench the unknown longings within us, if only for a moment.

These beautiful moments come often at times of change, times of a new direction, of ends and beginnings: in short, turning points. Throughout my life I have always felt drawn toward finding and understanding these junctures, whether they be in history, a musical tradition, or my own life. By realizing and comprehending where the hinge of a matter is we come to a much more complete understanding of what lies ahead of us. Looking back awakens a nostalgia for what was, and yet we have the hopeful expectation of what may come.

In programing Music@Mill I went with the idea of the hinge, because this last year has been one of the most turbulent shifts in human history. Through transitions between sound worlds from the heavenly intimacy of Schubert’s Cello Quintet, to Piazzolla’s Nuevo Tango to the swanky harmonies of Beatles ‘No. 1 Classics’ and the eternal spaciousness of Arvo Pärt by the Texas Cellos @texascellos to the Americana expression of singer-songwriters, we pass through different stories in sound, and experience the ‘hinges’ between chapters in close proximity. Like a rock album, the festival programming is hung together under an arch.

If we as a society, and as performing artists survive, and I hope we will survive! —We will enter a new era. A new era in culture and art, where Music@Mill played a small role in sustaining live culture. Remember— the Baroque era followed the bubonic plague!
