GRAPEVINE (February 27, 2013)–Costumes worn by Texas-born musicians Barbara Mandrell, Janis Joplin, and Willie Nelson will be on display at the Dallas Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Show March 15-16 in Grapevine.

“It will be a treat to see this vintage apparel worn by famous Texans,” says Melissa Sands of Vintage Promotions, LLC, producer of the show. “It’s an added bonus for fans of vintage and patrons of the show.”

The Barbara Mandrell and Janis Joplin costumes are performance outfits. Willie Nelson wore the jean-jacket vest on display in an episode of Nash Bridges in 1997. All three musicians hail from Texas: Mandrell from Houston, Joplin from Port Arthur and Nelson from Abbott, Texas- in the Hill Country.

The costumes are displayed courtesy of the Texas Musicians Museum, which is currently planning for a new home in the area. The Texas Musicians Museum offers the worlds largest and most comprehensive public display of Texas music history in the world and is currently looking for a permanent home.
