Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock make up The Flatlanders—and the journey of the grassroots group is now a new book.

The Flatlanders got together in the 1970s, and took a hiatus for about 20 years--each forming their own solo career--before coming back and playing together again. The story is told by author John T. Davis in the book, The Flatlanders: Now It’s Now Again.

“The ideal response to people that read the book would be to go and check out the Flatlanders’ recording, and the music of the three individuals,” Davis said.

Davis and two of the Flatlanders will be at the Texas Book Festival to talk about the book at 2 p.m. Sunday in the music tent. Click here for more information.

Our Andy Langer talks with Davis ahead of the fest in this “Backstage Pass” in the video above.

You're never too old to learn a new skill.

Girl Guitar teaches women of all ages how to play guitar and other instruments. The classes are six weeks long, and at end of the course, the group performs a showcase.

Teacher Mandy Rowden and her students say the best part of the class is the community.

"We've been through births and deaths and marriages and divorces, and everything in between together, so I consider some of these women to be my closest friends," Rowden said. "I've seen amazing friendships form out of it."

Girl Guitar's showcase is on Nov. 2. For more information on that and music lessons, visit GirlGuitarAustin.com.
