Dear Friends,

We are now HOME based for a nice stretch, though still touring out on long weekends and such into our own backyard (TEXAS) as well as surrounding states of our region (AR, OK, MO, etc.) On Sept. 28 we wrapped up a 102-day concert tour that covered 13,000-plus miles, and included 75+ performances from New Mexico up to Montana, across the upper Midwest and into New England, then home via the Southeast and South.

The first weekend of October, we enjoyed soulful audiences at Uncle Calvin's Coffeehouse in Dallas, and at our own Winnsboro Center of the Arts. With very special guest (and daughter) Kate Hearne.

Please check our calendar page for details, and to see when and where we'll be in the coming days. We'd love to see you there. Always.

MORE HAPPY NEWS: the Texas Commission on the Arts has honored Adler & Hearne by including us on the 2014-2016 Texas Touring Roster. Yes indeedy! We are now OFFICIAL Texas Touring Artists for the 2014-2016 season. YaHOO TOO!!!



Austin, TX – June 4, 2014 - Adler & Hearne is pleased to announce they have been approved for inclusion on the new Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) Texas Touring Roster. The Texas Touring Roster features some of the state’s best artistic talent and is designed to ensure that all Texans may enjoy events and performances by these artists in their local communities. Adler & Hearne is one of 150 artists and arts companies selected for inclusion on the roster.

“Artists on the Texas Touring Roster travel to communities across the state and perform in a variety of venues,” said TCA executive director Gary Gibbs. “In addition to performances, they may also conduct workshops, master classes, residencies, lecture-demonstrations or arts education components as a way to engage community residents. We are proud to offer the citizens of Texas access to such high-quality artistic talent.”

Artists on the roster must have a history of touring and maintain a reasonable fee range. The Texas Commission on the Arts does not provide direct funds to the artists on the Texas Touring Roster. Instead, TCA provides grants to arts presenters, schools, libraries, theaters, and other nonprofits and government units throughout Texas to help with the cost of bringing in companies and artists from the roster. Presenters may apply through TCA’s Arts Respond Performance Support grant category for a portion of the artistic fees for artists from the Texas Touring Roster. 

Acceptance onto the Texas Touring Roster benefits groups like Adler & Hearne by giving them a powerful marketing tool. Access to grant funds combined with the fact that Texas Touring Roster artists have been deemed the best in their field by a panel of statewide experts makes these artists attractive to a variety of presenters, including schools, festivals, theaters and other venues.

Artists on the Texas Touring Roster range from individual performing and visual artists to large performing arts companies. They represent artistic disciplines including music, visual art, dance, theater, storytelling, literary art and folk art. Options are diverse and range from ballet to bluegrass, animation to poetry, jazz to children’s theater, and everything in between.

More information on Adler & Hearne is available at The complete Texas Touring Roster, as well as information on the Arts Respond Performance Support grant category, is available online at
