Salon Series: Songwriting with Darden Smith

Art and style have been important components of Hotel Ella since the mansion was constructed at the turn of the 20th century. To honor the artistic roots of the property, the Hotel Ella Salon Series brings together Austin creatives from all disciplines and invites the community to engage with the artists in an intimate setting.

This spring brings a three-part Salon Series led by Darden Smith, an Austin-based singer-songwriter whose international career spans 30 years and 15 critically acclaimed albums. He redefines what it means to be a musician by applying the craft of songwriting to education, entrepreneurship, and service to others.
