Name: Wood & Wire

Featured track: "Coal Mining One"

Country/City of origin: Austin, Texas

Genre: Bluegrass

In one sentence: A blend of traditional and modern bluegrass elements drawing upon everything from Doc Watson to Led Zeppelin.

Why we chose them: This local bluegrass band is poised for a breakout in 2013. If you miss them closing out SXSW at Austin's favorite East Side saloon, catch them in the Hill Country setting of Old Settler's Festival in April.

SXSW official showcase: Saturday, March 16 at The White Horse
