Austin Texas Music

The music in Austin, Texas is as lively and unexpected as the residents of this capital city. The music of the city has many different flavors but the dominant types of music are country, blues, and urban music (like hip hop). There is also a strong following for bluegrass and other types of folk music. Bluegrass (a form of jazz) consists primarily of one or more instruments improvising and taking turns on the melody, while the others play to acompany the leading sound. It is described as music that can touch your soul and that tells a great story through song.
