A fusion of country, with some Cajun flavor mixed in, too, is on its way to Victoria.
Kevin Anthony will perform at Riverside Park Saturday during Victoria's Market Days event.
The Texas native, who writes and records his own songs, described his music as a "Gulf Coast sound."
"I live in Galveston, I have family in Hallettsville, but my family is originally from Louisiana," he said. "I try to combine it all into a unique Texas sound."
April and May are busy times for Anthony because that's when festival season picks up, but he said he enjoys playing at events like Market Days.
Not only is it a chance to expose people to different types of music, but it also allows Anthony, 42, to try out material for his in-the-works album on a live audience.
Saturday will be a solo performance, complete with guitar, fiddle and possibly a little accordion, Anthony said. Among other tunes, he said he plans to play "Hurricane Ike," an autobiographical song about what he and his family experienced during the 2008 storm.
Anthony performs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
"This will be me," he said. "The unplugged version. It's fun to get back to your roots."
