Home with the Armadillo

For nearly 100 years, Continuing and Innovative Education (CIE) at the University of Texas at Austin has offered a variety of credit and noncredit courses, services, and programs that include informal classes. Typical courses tackle topics on language, business, arts, travel, and cooking.

"Home With the Armadillo: Four Decades That Changed Austin Music" is a monthlong course that discusses the Fifties through the Eighties, a period that saw Austin evolve from a folk and country-based college town into the live music capital of the world. Subjects include Dr. Hepcat, Roky Erickson, Janis Joplin, W.C. Clark, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rosie Flores, and Kathy Valentine.
