‘Power Blue Grass Trio’ Brother Mule Plays Sunday


Jay Barrett/KMXT

As part of the continuing KMXT Concert Series, we are bringing to town "Brother Mule," a self-described "blue grass power trio."

Brother Mule will be performing Sunday at 7 p.m. in El Chi’s. Tickets are available there, at The Treasury on the Mall and at the KMXT studios, where special family-priced packages are also available.
