Band Bio

Claxton Welch was formed in 2008 by Bill Claxton and Paul Welch. Both natives of East Dallas and longtime friends, they started playing their original folk/rock Americana type music and have evolved over the years to include an accordion player and African drummers in their performances.

They played the main stage at !Wildflower Richardson's Art and Music Festival in 2010. They have played Poor David's Pub, the Opening Bell, The Free Man Cajun Café and Lounge as well as many dates farther east.

They have released two cds – 'Claxton Welch' and 'Close to the Bone' and have begun work on their third.

Culturemap Dallas says, "It's a new sound Claxton Welch is exploring with shades of the thundering percussion of Paul Simon's 'Graceland'." The full review can be found on our website at Culturemap Dallas
