Artists & Groups

AARON PYLE, PHD

Dr. Aaron Pyle, Choctaw, plays the Native American flute, performing traditional songs and original compositions that are based on traditional Native music, enhanced by modern and jazz influences — an extraordinary, beautiful, unique style. Pyle earned his music degree from Texas State University and earned his master’s and doctorate degrees at the University of Texas at Austin, where he  currently resides.

Adrian Villegas

In his “Barrio Daze” one-man-show performance, Villegas brings to vivid life a gallery of nine unforgettable characters ranging from a hopeless panhandling borrachón (drunk) to an unlikely Chicano U.S. Senate hopeful. In addition to his solo work, Villegas is also a writer, performer, and Artistic Director of The Latino Comedy Project (LCP), an Emmy-nominated multimedia sketch comedy troupe whose most recent show “Gentrif*cked” closed two sold-out Austin runs in Dec. 2017 and received “2017 Best Of Austin” from the Austin Chronicle.
