GREENWICH, Conn. – Experience the extraordinary trio of Hot Club of Cowtown live at Greenwich Library on Sunday, March 6 in the Cole Auditorium.

The band formed in 1994 when fiddler and vocalist Elana James placed an ad in the music section of the Village Voice looking to join a band, and guitarist Whit Smith answered.

In 2001, the band’s lineup solidified with the arrival of bassist Jake Erwin, who cemented Hot Club’s larger-than-life, earth-shaking rhythmic foundation.

“Our band is fiddle, guitar, and bass, and they can do anything together. We’ve always played a combination of hot jazz and Western swing,” says James.

Since its beginnings, 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 by The Times of London for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation,” the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect.

Experience the performance at 3:30 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. The concert is free.

Doors open at 3 p.m. and seating is limited. For more information, visit

The Main Library is located at 101 W. Putnam Ave. in Greenwich. More information is available online at or by calling 203-622-7900.
