Tarleton State University invites you to kick off your holiday festivities on Saturday, Dec. 10, as TSU’s Gordon Center for Industrial History of Texas hosts Roy Thackerson—The Fingerless Fiddler—and his band.
The free music program begins at 6:30 p.m. at the museum in the historic ghost town of Thurber. Free refreshments will be served. A favorite of the Grand Ole Opry, Thackerson lost the fingers on his left hand and the sight of his left eye at age 6 to a dynamite cap explosion.
In addition to being a guest of the late Roy Acuff—the king of country music—on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, Thackerson has performed on the Ralph Emory Show as well as with the late Box Car Willie in Branson, Mo.
