Jazz and swing trio to perform in Petersburg

A western swing and jazz trio from Austin, Texas is touring Alaska this month and makes a stop in Petersburg tonight thanks to the Petersburg Arts Council. The Hot Club of Cowtown formed in 1997 and put out their first CD in 1998. They’ve since recorded 11 more. The latest, Rendezvous in Rhythm, was released in May. Listeners might have also heard them perform on Mountain Stage, Etown, World Cafe, A Prairie Home Companion and other public radio shows.

For a preview, Joe Viechnicki spoke on the phone with guitar player and singer Whit Smith.
