Matt Texter’s earthy grit and growl have always found good ground at Goodell Gardens in Edinboro. The performance barn there – nestled in the middle of the lush, green, historic Goodell homestead – seems a just-about-perfect place to see and hear the Erie-based Americana troubadour do his thing.

“It’s a great venue,” Texter says. “The barn and grounds are beautiful. I really like that it’s a family environment, so my wife and little boys can come along to see me ‘rockstar.’”

Texter and company will be there again – this time, along with some musical friends – on Friday, July 17, taking another spotlight seat as the next featured artists in Goodell’s annual Summer Music Series.

The showcase, part of Goodell’s weekly summertime series, is from 7 to 9 p.m. – just the right time for some good, friendly, family fun. – Ryan Smith
