Enjoy a live performance from the Gypsy jazz and Western swing trio.
Since 1998, the Western swing-gypsy jazz trio Hot Club of Cowtown has traveled the world bringing their own brand of magical musical chemistry to audiences far and wide. Fiddler Elana James, guitarist Whit Smith and bassist Jake Erwin are equal partners in this original marriage of gypsy-jazz-inspired by the music of Django Reinhardt—which accounts for the "Hot Club" portion of their name—with the hoedowns, traditional tunes, and Western swing-inspired music of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, represented in the "Cowtown" of their name. They have created a legacy of the preservation of musical traditions that have often been overlooked by the mainstream and alternative music worlds.
