2/11/18 Ameripolitan Honky Tonk and Western Swing

We saw seven acts this evening. Rosie Flores mentioned she has a new album on the way this year, and as with the show the day before, she brought out Jolie Goodnight for a song.  The Reeves Brothers from Las Vegas drew a standing ovation for a very spirited set. They came across very well live. Sophia Johnson from England, now residing in Austin, joked about her US work visa stating that she’s an “alien of exceptional talent.” The Farmer & Adele have a new show on WSM radio. If you like western swing with a dose of campy humor, check them out. Luke Bell is an act I also saw perform at the Americanafest gospel brunch in 2016. Carolyn Sills describes her style as spaghetti western swing. Jake Penrod closed the night with a great cover of Hank Sr.
