Hello, we're Cook and Rose, an acoustic duo from Central Texas. We play original music rooted in folk and blues.

Back in the saddle again 

We're settling in to our new place in Austin, battling mosquitos, unpacking, and playing from time to time at the Irie Bean. We're working on some new songs, including a new original called Just Like Everybody Else.



Summer in New Mexico 

We're back in Northern New Mexico this summer and really looking forward to playing at one of our favorite venues. We'll be performing at the Adobe Bar at the Taos Inn Monday, July 30th from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

South by Southwest Break  

In March, we finally stopped rolling for awhile, got the car all fixed up, and escaped Austin's SXSW crowds to spend time in San Antonio. We worked on some new songs of our own, along with a cover of Woody Guthrie's "Deportees."


More Miles on the Wagon  

We drove up the coast from L.A. and then back down again - playing in Monterey, Morro Bay, Paso Robles, and San Luis Obispo. In Altadena on January 20th, we played the final set of our eight-month, 30-performance western tour.


In Taos, we rested awhile and worked on new music.


Now we are happy to be back in Central Texas, where we're planning to stay until the end of May.
