On Sunday, May 18, the final concert of Music on the Divide’s 25th season will feature the talented group, Houston Jones at the IOOF Hall, 6240 Main St. in Georgetown.

Houston Jones is an eclectic group of musicians who call themselves a “California based high-octane Americana quintet.”

Formed in 2001, the band performs a strong original repertoire that ranges from bluegrass and folk to blues and gospel. Instruments range from guitar, drums, percussion, bass and cello to keyboards and accordion — and of course vocals.

The group’s popularity follows them wherever the musicians go and Houston Jones is a particularly big hit at festivals, including Telluride, Sisters, American River, Mill Pond and Strawberry, where they were voted best new discovery and best vocalist.

For 25 years Music on the Divide has brought a diverse selection of music to Georgetown, inviting residents to be entertained by talented musicians without having to leave the Divide. This Georgetown group’s dedication to music and educating young people about music, including providing scholarships, remains an outstanding example of community spirit.

Music on the Divide always makes the season finale a festive one by providing an array of food and wine to all attendees, served on linen-covered café tables in the main hall.

Doors open to members at 2 p.m. and to the public at 2:30 p.m. The concert begins at 3 p.m. and tickets are available at the door.
