What if you took 2 Texas legends, Willie Nelson and Bob
 Wills, the king of Texas Western Swing, and put them
 together in new elegant jazzy arrangements? That's what
 we've done at Will Taylor and Strings Attached. I have to
 say it's been one of the most fulfilling musical experiences
 in my life.  No kidding.  Will has really outdone himself
 this time, with gorgeous arrangements for violin, cello,
 jazz trumpet, mandolin, upright bass and of course guitar.
 Vocals by Steve Carter, a long-time presence on the Austin
 music scene, and me.

 We mounted this show a couple months ago and people sure
 seem to like it.  So we decided to launch a fundraising
 project and see if we could raise enough money to make a CD,
 and a DVD with videos of each song and documentary-style
 interviews and footage from our shows and our lovely little
 gardening community in South Austin.

Listen to a few of the songs we've completed here and videos here.

We've presented the live concert (see photos here), have recorded and filmed most of the songs in my home studio (see videos here)
