Join us on May 28 for an exciting song swap with Jamie Lin Wilson and Owen Temple!
Jamie Lin Wilson’s Holidays & Wedding Rings (2016) deftly delivers songs both effortless (“Just Like Heartache”) and elegant (“Just Some Things”). Peaks showcase an already razor-sharp songwriter growing exponentially (“Seven Year Drought”). “I’ve always been in bands and I love collaborating with my friends and bandmates,” says Wilson, formerly of popular Central Texas bands The Trishas and The Gougers, “but I’ve always had it in the back of my mind that I’d make a full-length record.”
Meanwhile, Owen Temple’s folky masterwork Stories They Tell (2013) showcases a sharp storyteller in peak form. The Kerrville, Texas native supported his high watermark album at Catfish Concerts the next year and we’re pleased to welcome back one of Texas’ finest! Don’t just take our word. “Owen Temple takes on the job of the Texas troubadour with grave intent,” the Austin Chronicle raves. “One has to admire Temple’s focus on his craft, which he continues to burnish in smart and tuneful ways.”

We had a blast in Nashville in September as Catfish Concerts proudly presented our first show in Nashville on September 21 with James McMurtry and Steve Poltz during the annual Americana Music Association festival! The two incredible singer-songwriters performed as a part of Jenni and Brian’s event to celebrate their new book Kent Finlay, Dreamer: The Legacy behind Cheatham Street Warehouse at City Winery. Big thanks for everyone who came out to our sold out event!

“The cool thing about Catfish Concerts is that it really has the feel of when I was a kid in South Austin, except you guys are way too calm and take it way to seriously.” – John Townes Van Zandt II
“Catfish Concerts is among the most intimate, friendly, inspired and inspirational house concerts in the country and most likely the world. It’s like hanging out with your favorite folks in a treehouse built by your favorite uncle, the one who paints and write poems all day. I’ll tell you what I think Catfish is: a genuine piece of heaven that you can touch with your hands while you drink good local beer and listen to great songs. Thank you, Jenni and Brian, for creating such a space and event.” – Walt Wilkins
