THE hot jazz/western swing trio Hot Club of Cowtown are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a tour of the UK this autumn, and will be performing live at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan on Friday, October 27 at 7.30pm.

Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, the 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 for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent).

It has remained “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time” (New York Times).

The band’s musical alchemy has been described as “another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” (The Times, London).

In the UK, the Hot Club of Cowtown continues to tour extensively and has been featured at the Glastonbury Festival and has also been a returning guest on Later With Jools Holland, the Cambridge Folk Festival, and BBC Radio 2’s Radcliffe and Maconie and Bob Harris Country shows.

Tickets for the Hot Club of Cowtown are £17.50, £16.50 for concessions and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, online at or via the new Mwldan app.
