Get Ticket

Since their first recording in 1998, Austin-based Hot Club of Cowtown has grown to be the most globe-trotting, hardest-swinging Western swing trio on the planet. But for guitarist Whit Smith, fiddler Elana James, and bassist Jake Erwin, it has always been about staying true to their roots.

“Unfussy and unpretentious, their blend of down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation harks back to a lost era…”
The Times (London)

“This Austin-based western swing/jazz trio….will bring even the
tamest audience to its feet.”
Chicago Tribune

Great music happening at Shalin Liu Performance Center but don’t wait till the last minute to get tickets because these shows SELL OUT!
