RUBY DEE AND THE SNAKEHANDLERS – AUSTIN AMBASSADORS
It’s official, folks! Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers have been designated Official Austin Creative Ambassadors whenever we tour outside of Texas and the States, for that matter. We’ve been asked to represent the City of Austin wherever we go, helping to open new avenues of dialogue between creative communities and dignitaries worldwide. In fact, our first representation will happen this Summer on our upcoming tour across Southeast Australia, starting in Austin’s sister city Adelaide. Shaking hands with the Mayor, how ’bout that?!
