My KUTX: Kelly Willis

Kelly Willis has long been a staple of Austin music, both as a solo artist and with her husband and musical partner Bruce Robison. In fact, Kelly and Bruce play the historic Gruene Hall on Friday, August 12, so this week on My KUTX, we’re broadcasting a vintage guest DJ set from Kelly, first recorded in 2013. She spins an hour of her influences and favorite songs, featuring plenty of rockabilly, country, folk, and more. Tune in Saturday, August 6 or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
