At its core, Hot House West is about building community through acoustic music. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay connected to the people, the music, and the place we all love. Want the scoop on what's happening in Salt Lake City? Every week we send out a community spotlight and an event newsletter that includes our own events and other happenings in the community. 


Looking for ways to engage? Dust off the ol’ fiddle. Learn the tune of the week. Find a jam and come play. Get out your dancing shoes. There is a lot of great music and plenty of friendship to go around! Welcome to the community and we look forward to seeing you around.

For fans of acoustic music; from Django Reinhardt to Billy Strings, Bill Monroe to Louis Armstrong, Sierra Ferrell to Bruce Molsky, Willie Nelson to Cab Calloway, Doc Watson to Julian Lage, Molly Tuttle to Patsy Cline, Bireli Lagrene to Joni Mitchell (it's fun to put these names together)

this is the place for you.


We believe acoustic music brings people together. It provides musicians, dancers, and audiences with a common tradition, repertoire, and language for making instant connection. We are working to transform Salt Lake City into a place where these acoustic styles and traditions can thrive. Swing, jazz, bluegrass, old-time, country, Klezmer, and beyond. By cultivating a vibrant musical community, maybe we'll see some Salt Lake musicians become part of the aforementioned list of musical titans. 


We won't know unless we try. So come be a part of the musical movement we are building. Let's make Salt Lake City a celebrated music city, famed for its incredible musical energy; a Nashville or an Austin or a Los Angeles or a Paris. We have the raw ingredients here (plus epic mountains).
