" W e have had a lot of interest already from local and out-of-town fans of Guy Clark," said festival chairman Glenn Dromgoole. "We are expecting a good crowd for his first performance in West Texas in a long time."
"One couple is planning to come from Florida to hear him," Dromgoole said, "and we've had quite a few inquiries from Austin, Houston, San Antonio and other cities."
