A 2011 inductee into the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame, Swing-singer Carolyn Martin is a Texas born, Nashville based swing singer. She, husband Dave Martin – bass, and Rory Hoffman – accordion, are back on the patio stage at Sweetwater Grill & Tavern, 115 S. Elm St., Denton, for three hours of wonderful, fun Swing Music … 7-10 p.m. …

Since her initial love affair with Western swing, Carolyn Martin has become a student of the genre. Her performances pay homage to the classic swing groups of the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s, while also drawing inspiration from big band jazz and Broadway show tunes.

Martin’s other projects have included performing as a member of the Grammy-nominated country group Time Jumpers, as well as a recent stint paying tribute to Patsy Cline on the “Country Royalty” tour.
