Dix Hat Band has opened for Robert Earl Keen Jr. and has played with acclaimed singer-songwriter Chuck Pyle.
The project is the restoration of the childhood home of J.I. Allison, who was the drummer for Buddy Holly and the Crickets. Holly and Allison wrote a number of their hit songs at the home, including “That’ll be the Day.”
Each day features a different craft medium, such as watercolors, wood, fabric, clay, and paper.
Today marks the 54th anniversary of the Day the Music Died and the death of Buddy Holly.
