Friday night brings with it an opportunity to witness a prolific artist in Tish Hinojosa, who will be delivering her Texas-tinged signature sound at Coffee Gallery Backstage.

The singer-songwriter and guitarist is a popular figure not only locally, as the Austin native has headlined no less than six times at Coffee Gallery, but nationally as well. Her blend of folk, country, Latino and pop styles has gained her accolades among the public and her musical peers.

Hinojosa performed at the White House at the behest of President and Hillary Clinton during that administration, and throughout her career has performed alongside such industry greats as Joan Baez, Booker T. Jones, Pete Seeger, Flaco Jimenez and Dwight Yoakam.

Along the way, Hinojosa, who tours frequently worldwide and has received critical raves around the country, has released 16 CDs.
