From the bright lights of the Grand Ol' Opry to the UK's Glastonbury and Cambridge Festivals and appearances on BBC's Later with Jools Holland, The Hot Club of Cowtown has ascended from its beginnings in NYC's East Village to become the premier ambassador of Hot Jazz and Western Swing through sheer tenacity, virtuosity and the unstoppable power of their breath-taking live show.
HCCT began as a gutsy trio playing traditional music but began to develop its own sound through invitations to collaborate, tour with and work alongside more contemporary artists. The trio was hired (and survived) tours with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, first opening for them then playing with them.
The band's name comes from two sources: "Hot Club" from the hot jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli's Hot Club of France, and "Cowtown" from the western influence of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys and the band's love of fiddle tunes, hoedowns, and songs of the American west.
