Hot Club of Cowtown performs "Farr Away Blues" during the "Stay a Little Longer" show at the 36th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hot Club of Cowtown
Hot Club of Cowtown has been stunning audiences worldwide for over 20 years. Their trademark blend of hot jazz, western swing, Gypsy music, American songbook standards, and music from 1930s Paris and the American West, is unmistakable. Vocalist and classically trained violinist Elana James is a sometime-Montana and Colorado horse wrangler. She discovered Western swing with bandmate Whit Smith (vocals, guitar), whose first memories also include folk and acoustic blues music. Jake Erwin (bass) completes the trio with tight vocal harmonies and jaw-dropping double bass lines.
"Farr Away Blues" music by Hugh Farr & Karl Farr.
This show was filmed in front of a live audience at the Elko Convention Center's Laurena Moren Theater on Feb. 1, 2020.
Made possible by Nevada Gold Mines and by the multitude of staff, artists, volunteers, and community members working behind the scenes to make this show happen.
Brought to you by the Western Folklife Center, using story and cultural expression to connect the American West to the world.
