  • The Cattlestops play a variety of country-flavoured standards and original songs, with a particular emphasis on Western swing, a genre popularised in the 1930s around the Southwestern USA by artists such as Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Western Swing is a hybrid of jazz, bluegrass and blues styles traditionally played on stringed instruments like fiddles, mandolins and guitars rather than the brass and reed instruments more popular in the North at that time.
