Galveston has long been home to a thriving art and live music scene.  This year, Mitchell Historic Properties and the restaurants and attractions at Pier 21® are raising the bar with a new monthly event called Party on the Pier.  The free, family-friendly gathering takes place on the third Saturday of the month from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. through October and features live music and entertainment including performances by award winning Austin musicians. 
 
Acclaimed Texas blues musician Carolyn Wonderland will perform at Party on the Pier on Sat., June 15.  A native of Houston, Wonderland has won upwards of 35 awards for her soulful voice and incredible instrumental skills.
A musical Jill-of-all-trades, Wonderland is proficient in electric, acoustic, and lapsteel guitars, trumpet, piano, accordion, mandolin, singing, and most notably, whistling. 
 
Her incredible sound gained Wonderland the admiration of great musicians including Asleep at the Wheel’s Ray Benson, the late Eddy Shaver, Shelley King, and Bob Dylan.  Wonderland has performed for numerous broadcast and commercial outlets including Austin City Limits, ME! Live, and KUHT-TV’s The Connection.  Her most recent album, Peace Meal, was produced by a number of Grammy Award winners including nine-time Grammy winner Ray Benson, two-time Grammy winner Larry Campbell, and founding Monkee, Michael Nesmith.
 
Wonderland will perform at Party on the Pier on Saturday, June 15 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Pier 21®, located at 21st Street and Harborside Drive in Galveston, Tx.  The event is free and open to the public.  Visitors are encouraged to grab a meal and enjoy the show from the outdoor seating areas at any of the participating restaurants located on the pier.
