Erie-based Americana troubadour Matt Texter performs at Goodell Gardens by Ryan Smith

The Goodell Gardens performance barn – a big, beautiful old thing, nestled in the middle of a lush farm property in Edinboro – is a great place to catch any kind of summertime show.

Sound just carries well there, and, with those barn doors wide open, lingers sweet as it flows out into the air.

And the choice-quality acoustic works of Erie-based Americana troubadour Matt Texter – a favorite of area roots music fans – have always found good ground at the Goodell homestead.

Texter’s back to the Gardens again on the evening of Friday, July 11, taking a spotlight seat as the next featured artist in Goodell’s Summer Music Series.

His midsummer night’s performance is one of the nice, long list laid out for this year’s bi-weekly music series at Goodell, which kicked off in late May and continues into August. 

Other performances still lined up – all from  7 to 9 p.m. – include Scenic Route on July 25,  Picks & Hammers on Aug. 8, and Basket Eddy on Aug. 22.

Goodell’s namesake botanical gardens and arboretum are as worth seeing as the sounds of its Summer Music Series are worth hearing. The chance to take in both are included in the cost of regular admission to the nonprofit venue, which receives arts funding support through the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. – Ryan Smith

7 p.m. Friday, July 11 // 221 Waterford St. (Route 6N), Edinboro // goodellgardens.org
