About Your Guide
Austin Music Heritage Tours is owned and operated by long time Austin resident Richard Roberts. Richard has been telling stories for a long time. An Emmy Award winning video producer, musician and lifelong lover of history, Richard is now combining those skills and interests into telling the story of the Live Music Capital of the World.
Richard interviewed musicians, club owners, poster artists and distilled the history of Austin music into a concise tour of the city. You’ll visit the sights where it all began, peruse the photography and poster art that documented the scene and see Austin from an insider’s perspective.
I will gladly assist you in planning visits to area clubs and make recommendations. If you have a particular area of interest (music genre, poster art, specific clubs, etc.) let me know and I can customize a tour for you.
