Hot Club of Cowtown is coming back for an encore performance as the dance band for this year’s Symphony in the Flint Hills Signature Event.
Following the sunset concert at Rosalia Ranch in Butler County on June 9, attendees can swing under the prairie sky to the western tunes of the legendary trio from Austin.
For two decades, Hot Club of Cowtown has charmed audiences worldwide with its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London). The trio has toured with Bob Dylan and opened for Willie Nelson. This international sensation also boasts some Kansas roots. The trio’s fiddler, Elana James, grew up in Prairie Village. She picked up the violin at the age of four – likely with the urging of her mother, who played for the Kansas City Symphony.
Hot Club of Cowtown will cap-off the day-long event, which includes prairie walks, covered wagon rides, inspirational talks, prairie art, cowboy poetry, food and beverage. The sunset concert will feature the Kansas City Symphony with special guest, singer-songwriter Aoife O’Donovan. This year’s theme, WaterWays, will explore the natural, cultural and structural elements of water in the Flint Hills.
