SYLVIA KIRK - Opening up the Inaugural Camp House Concert will be the Mother-Son duo of Sylvia and Matt Kirk. Sylvia and Matt are not the only musicians in Kirk family however. Bobby and Matt both sing and play rhythm and lead guitar respectively, while twins Katie and Jake deliver backup vocals and bass licks. Sylvia takes pride in her children and has raised them around a music environment and it shows. She has been playing locally for nearly 40 years, mostly in the San Antonio and New Braunfels area.
In a piece written by Action Magazine, where Sylvia captured the magazine cover, author Sam Kindrick describes Kirk as “one of the greatest female singing voices ever heard.” Cecil Thomason, Dallas musician who worked with Sylvia said “Her voice has an outstanding tone. Even back when she was off-key she sounded good. She’s one of those rare vocalists who sounds good all the time.” Later in the article, Kindrick goes on to compare Kirk to Bonnie Rait, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt and Emmy Lou Harris. Kirk has worked with some of the best in Texas with a few of them going on to do bigger things. These two are going to rock the stage with a full 3-hour performance.
