Austin, TX proudly calls itself the Live Music Capital of the World. There are 10,000 working bands and 150 clubs featuring live music nightly. Rock and Roll Hall of Famers play free happy hours, Grammy Award Winners hone their skills nightly on stage and earnest young rockers play in parking lots just for the joy of it.
Austin Music Heritage Tours will take you through the past 50 years of the Austin music scene, from psychedelia and the birth of the Cosmic Cowboy to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Austin's Home of the Blues. Today Austin may be best known for SXSW or the Austin City Limits Festival, but the clubs are where it all began.
Austin Music Heritage Tours interviewed musicians, club owners and poster artists who helped shape the Austin music scene and distilled this history into a concise tour of Austin. You’ll visit some of the sights and peruse the photography and poster art that documented the music.
