Concerts in the Attic is a not-for-profit house concert series hosted by Steve Long and Ed and Sarah Rogers. Held in the attic (that's right, the attic) of Ed and Sarah's one-hundred-year old house in Fort Worth's historic Fairmount neighborhood, the series features top-notch singer/songwriters performing in an intimate setting for an appreciative and attentive audience of music lovers.

Concerts are usually held on Sundays beginning at 5pm*, and are followed by an acoustic song circle until 11pm. Guests are encouraged to bring acoustic instruments, potluck dishes and their beverage of choice. A suggested donation is collected during each show, all going directly to the performer.

Singer-songwriter BOB LIVINGSTON has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life, even though he's
spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful music legends in Texas. As a member of
Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band, performing and recording with such visionaries as Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey and
Ray Wylie Hubbard, Livingston played an integral role in creating the music that first earned Austin the designation of 'Live Music Capital of the World'. Achieving recognition in their own right, the Gonzo’s self-titled debut record was named by Rolling Stone, "one of the best albums ever to come out of Austin."

Livingston has seen a lot of the world since growing up in musically fertile West Texas. Hailing originally from Lubbock, his interests were more 'Cosmic' than 'Cowboy' and have prompted him to delve into the music and mysteries of many cultures. Traveling since the 80’s as a Music Ambassador for the US State Department, Livingston has taken Texas music as far afield as India, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, demonstrating again and again the unique power that music has to build bridges between peoples of the world. As Livingston says, 'When all else fails, music prevails'. This philosophy earned him the honor of being appointed, 'Austin’s International Music Ambassador', in 2010 by the Austin City Council. This world-traveled view was reflected in his album, 'Mahatma Gandhi and Sitting Bull', released in 2004 and named by the Austin American-Statesman as one of the year’s Top 10 CDs.

With his Texas Music Awards winner follow-up, Gypsy Alibi, Livingston presents a mixed bag of folk-rock, Americana, country
and rock-a-billy with an epic or two thrown in. Co-produced by Livingston and Lloyd Maines, Gypsy Alibi, has something for radio
stations of all genres. Check out Ruby’s Shoes, Dance Like I’s a Holliday, Ghost of Vicksburg and Country Western Swing!
