| Horse Opera. Real country music. A natural mix of traditional honky tonk, bluegrass, and hillbilly music. Songs of the human condition, the good and the bad.
Horse Opera released their debut studio cd, ‘Sounds of the Desert’, in may of 2010, and have relentlessly toured the country since then. 8 national tours and a broken down van later, they are back in Texas, rebuilding the music machine. In 2012, Horse Opera added Mr. Chris ‘Howdy’ Darrell to the band. Howdy is playing acoustic guitar and mandolin, and writing and singing some great new originals.
Horse Opera also added Heather Rae Johnson on fiddle and vocals, and Chris Wallis is back on the drums!
Horse Opera is hard at work on a new record. The band is currently playing around Austin and Texas, and has plans for national touring again, after the new record is released! The record is nearing completion and should be out in time for the band’s OFFICIAL SXSW SHOWCASE, which will be at THE WHITE HORSE on MARCH 15th at 9PM!!! 40 minute set.
