Hot Club of Cowtown are a hot jazz/western swing/country trio from Austin Texas, who are sure to start everyone toe tapping and finger clicking!

Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, the Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand. Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent), remaining “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time” (New York Times). The band’s musical alchemy has been described as “another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” (The Times, London), while American Songwriter observed that “the excellent three players of this band could be doing anything but have chosen to honor the greats of jazz and swing with their sound.” The Belfast Telegraph calls the Hot Club of Cowtown “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game,” and the New York Times, in a live review the trio as armed with “an arsenal full of technique and joy.”

Along with the Hot Club’s dedicated cult following worldwide — they have toured for the U.S. State Department as musical ambassadors to Azerbaijan, Armenia, the Republic of Georgia and the Sultanate of Oman — certain titans of the industry have also taken notice. Bob Dylan, with whom the band toured and with whom James has toured and recorded, is a continuing inspiration. The Hot Club has opened several shows for Willie Nelson, toured with Nelson and Dylan during a summer-long stadium tour, and recently opened seven nights of Roxy Music’s sold-out “For Your Pleasure” U.K. stadium tour. In the U.K. the Hot Club of Cowtown continues to tour extensively and has been featured at the Glastonbury Festival and has also been a returning guest on Later With Jools Holland, the Cambridge Folk Festival, and BBC Radio 2’s Radcliffe and Maconie and Bob Harris Country shows.

This show is double bill with the Nashville based Americana singer songwriter Amelia White, whose new album "Rhythm of the Rain" will be released prior to this show.  2016 was a good year for Amelia in the UK, where her last full-length release, “Home Sweet Hotel,” landed some killer reviews, like a top country pick in the Telegraph. She played Maverick, Summertyne, and Platform festivals, along with a month of club dates. While touring, White stayed with a promoter in York, and reading the news from the US began to write, the songs that would make up “Rain.” That ocean of separation gave her the necessary distance to comment on the shake-up back home without finger pointing, something that White has always done. No judgement, just sharp observations that lead to emotions. Music City Roots host and journalist Craig Havighurst wrote that “her songs each have some fascinating crystalline shape that invites close attention and touch. “Rhythm of the Rain” is a collection of tunes touched by White’s tenure in the UK, as an offering of thanks for feeling embraced just when she needed it. 

Also on the bill is Danni Nicholls; with an Americana Association UK ‘album of the year’ award nomination for ‘Mockingbird Lane’, a 28 date UK tour supporting the legendary Shakin’ Stevens, supporting Lucinda Williams, a new live album released in association with Vintage TV and invites to play prestigious festivals such as Cambridge Folk, Tønder, Denmark and AmericanaFest, Nashville… 2017 is shaping up to be a very good year for Danni Nicholls.

The LYNNeS are Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson – two award winning singer-songwriters from Ottawa, Canada. 

Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters. With fourteen albums to her credit, the winner of multiple Canadian Folk Music awards (2011 English Songwriter of the Year), and a 2003 Juno award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year, she has certainly found her strength over time. Through a career that has seen her move from Ottawa to Los Angeles and back again, with stops in Nashville and Austin TX., and a healthy touring schedule that regularly takes her through the US, Europe and across Canada, she has always created and performed music with unbridled feeling and vulnerability. 

Lynne Hanson mixes gritty ballads with driving blues-tinged roots rock. Over the past ten years she’s been a Kerrville New Folk Finalist, nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and won the Colleen Peterson Award for songwriting. She’s released 6 albums, and toured across Canada, the US, Europe and the UK, most recently with her band The Good Intentions. She's toured in support of Grammy-nominated songwriters (Gretchen Peters and Steve Forbert) and Grammy award winning guitar player Albert Lee. The LYNNeS are two very strong women with something significant to say. And we think you're going to want to have a listen.
